Passionfruit-Cheesecake-Pots MIchelle Bridges

Here at URBANSWEAT we are always on the lookout for healthier desserts, and this Michelle Bridges gluten-free recipe is a winner. As Michelle says, “This is a lovely light dessert – it looks so indulgent yet is not bad on the calorie front.” We’re sold!

Passionfruit cheesecake pots
(Serves 4)

3 tablespoons light spreadable cream cheese
100 g fresh full-cream ricotta
3 tablespoons labne (a Lebanese soft cheese made form yoghurt)
4 passionfruit, halved, seeds and juice scraped
