Angel Food Cake With Strawberry- Balsamic Sauce and Orange Flavored Ricotta

I came up with this dessert recipe for my dad, who has diabetes. It is only 4 points + and is a lovely springtime dessert. You will have leftover strawberry sauce, which can be reserved for a later use.

serves 8 ( 1 slice of cake with 2 T. strawberry sauce and 2 T. ricotta = 4 points +)

Strawberry Sauce:

  • 1 lb. frozen strawberries, thawed
  • 1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 T. Xylitol or another 0 calorie sweetener
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1T. water

Ricotta Topping:

  • 1 c. low-fat ricotta
  • 1 T. Xylitol or another 0 calorie sweetener
  • 1 T. orange zest

  • 1 store bought angel food cake

Place strawberries in a saucepan along with Xylitol and balsamic. Cook until berries are softened. Mash berries. Combine cornstarch with water and add to berry mixture. Cook until thickened. Cool to room temperature.

Using an electric mixer, beat ricotta with Xylitol and orange zest for 3 minutes or until light.

Slice cake, top with berry mixture and ricotta.
