Healthy Cannoli Dip
This super easy 4-ingredient Cannoli Dip is so sweet and creamy, you’d never know it’s refined sugar free, fat free, low carb, high protein, and gluten free too!
This Healthy Cannoli Dip was loved by everyone — watch this dip disappear just as fast as you made it. Paired along with some graham crackers, animal crackers, fresh strawberries, sliced bananas, mini chocolate chips, or all-natural rainbow sprinkles, this dip will poof into thin air in (much) less than an hour 😉
Healthy Cannoli Dip
- 16 oz Fat Free Ricotta (you can use part skim or whole if you like)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Paste
- ¾ tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
- ½ tsp Natural Butter Flavor
- In a blender (I used my NutriBullet), add all of the ingredients and puree until very smooth.
- Serve immediately with mini chocolate chips, chopped nuts, rainbow sprinkles, or spoons alone. Keeps in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for ~1 week.
A generous serving of this dip has only 100 calories?!? Not to mention, 12g of filling protein and NO added sugar??? Why yes, I’ll take a second serving, please and thank you.
And did I mention this dip is perfect when served with coffee or espresso? I’m literally going weak in the knees as we speak.
Next time I make this Healthy Cannoli Dip (all for myself, I’m not sharing next time around… duh), I’m going to use it as frosting. Because that’s completely appropriate.
But is it also appropriate to go skinny dipping in it?
I’m asking for a friend… 😉
With love and good eats,
yum! that looks amazing! i can’t wait to go to the store to get some ricotta cheese so i can make this! thank you! =D
don’t get low-fat or fat-free dairy, people! it’s void of nutrients even if vitamins/minerals have been added!
you NEED fat to absorb the vitamins present in dairy – A, D, E, and K need FAT to be absorbed!!!!!
fat-free/low-fat is OVER.
forgot to mention CALCIUM – which works synergistically with Vitamin D (and so ALSO needs FAT)
Yummm… gonna make this soon! Now we just need a recipe for healthy cannoli shells and I can die happy 😉
I’ll definitely add that to my recipe wishlist! That’s gonna be a hard one though since they’re fried… eek! 😉
I’ve been very satisfied using low carb tortilla wraps which I bake, break & dip into low carb cannoli dip.
Great idea Jan! I never would’ve thought to do that. I guess I’m off to go buy some tortillas to try this out now 😉
Low carb tortillas? Where do you find these?
Use Pizzelles as a sub for the shells
OMG !!! I love that cannoli dip!!!
And I love your protein bar book. just received it !
I’m from Québec, Canada !
Thanks so much Karine! I’m glad you like the dip and I’m super super SUPER glad you just got the cookbook! 😀
I’m crossing my fingers you love all the recipes! 🙂
Have a great week,
I don’t like the aftertaste of Stevia. Any other options like honey or Agave?
I haven’t tried replacing the stevia here, but I suppose you can try ~1/2 cup (or to taste) of raw honey or agave nectar. Since these are liquid sweeteners, I would recommend omitting the almond milk in the recipe.
Hope you like the dip! 😀
Wow, this looks awesome. My hubby is a recently diagnosed diabetic, so I’m on the hunt for healthyish desserts he can enjoy. Thanks!
