    Directions

    Put the ricotta cheese, honey and vanilla extract into the small bowl of a food processor and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer to a small bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

    In a small saucepan combine the vinegar and sugar and bring to a boil. Simmer over a medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool completely.

    In a medium bowl, toss the berries with the basil and the balsamic syrup.

    Divide the cheese cream among 4 cocktail glasses, top with the berry mixture and serve.

      This is delicious! I am a huge fan of cheese cake and never really thought I liked Ricotta, but this dessert actually makes me think I like this more than cheese cake. It is amazing and hard to believe this decadent dessert is actually not all that bad for you. The basil is an unexpected wonderful surprise.
