makes 1 serving
*1/3 cup lowfat ricotta cheese
*1 tsp vanilla extract
*1 1/2 tsp agave nectar (optional)
*1 tsp sugar-free strawberry (or other fruit) preserves (optional)
*sprig of mint
1. Place the graham crackers in a bag and smash with a rolling pin until crumbs. Using the back of a spoon, press the crumbs into the bottom of a small dish.
2. Place the ricotta cheese in a bowl and add the vanilla extract. (You don't need to be exact with the measurements; just mix and taste as you go.) You don't even have to add the agave nectar if you prefer a "cheesier-tasting" cheesecake. Me, I like my desserts sweet, so I added a little agave nectar.
3. Once mixed, press ricotta cheese onto the top of the graham cracker crumbs. If you prefer a more solid cake, chill in the refrigerator about 30 minutes.
4. Drizzle fruit preserves over the top. (The sugar-free preserves tend to have more water than regular, and thus mimic a light "syrup.") Garnish with mint and enjoy!
