I’m not a huge coffee with dessert fan. I like my coffee iced and with lots of sugar and all the bad stuff for you….that’s why I don’t drink them very often. This dessert hit the spot for me getting my coffee fix in with a light dessert that’s sugar free! I have to admit on the leftovers it needed something sweet so I cheated and poured on some chocolate syrup. Hubby wasn’t a fan since he’s not big on certain textures. This had a very light grainy texture from the ricotta so he didn’t care for it, as for me I got lots of leftovers!
