South Beach Diet: Dessert

During my weight loss days, I made the Ricotta Crème desserts to appease my sweet tooth. This time around, I found them a bit less satisfying. The Phase Two and Three options were far more appealing.

As a chocoholic, I’m high on the Chocolate Dipped StrawberriesPistachio Bark, and Chocolate Dipped Apricots. I was also pleasantly surprised by the Individual Lime Cheesecakes. I modified the recipe slightly by using ginger snaps instead of vanilla wafers for my “crusts.”
