Mango Banana Ricotta Cream with Protein

After a busy day working in the gardens we settled in to prepare our evening meal. My husband, who loves dropping what he believes are subliminal hints, mentioned a ricotta cream with grilled pineapple we made last year. Unfortunately, we were currently out of grilled pineapple.

This dish has a nice macro nutrient ratio and makes a nice snack or dessert for family when entertaining. The added protein is something I do to improve the ratios. If you don’t log or track your intake with a goal in mind, this step can be omitted.

    OH Janet, My local groc has those mangos on sale 2 for $100. ! They are the smaller ones, right? Oh wouldn’t that be lovely! Also, where do you get that specific protein powder,. I have trouble finding pure!

      I hope that is 2 for a dollar and not $100… otherwise, wowsa..! You don’t actually have to add the protein, but if you want to you can. I get my Isopure at Vitamin Shoppe, it is a whey protein isolate.

  2. This looks so good! I cannot wait to try it.

    This looks so delicious. I love ricotta, as a small child I would eat it plain out of the container when no one was looking.
