COHEN DIET: Coffee Ricotta Cheesecakes



This is for when you need something sweet even though you are on the Cohen Diet. Though with me quiting sugar, this ended up being too sweet! I added ground espresso granules as well to get a big coffee kick but you can leave it out. This will replace a cheese meal so have a salad first then enjoy some cheesecake afterwards!


makes 1 medium cheesecake or 3 small versions (as in the photo).

  • 2 provitas
  • lemonade (sugar free)
  • 100g ricotta
  • ¼ -½ cup cold coffee
  • 2 sweeteners
  • 1 tbsp coffee granules (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  2. Crush the provitas until fine. Wet with a little sprite and press into moulds. Refrigerate while mixing the ricotta.
  3. Whisk ricotta until smooth with no lumps. 
  4. Add enough coffee to make a smooth mousse like consistency. Add the coffee granules and sweetener. 
  5. Mix well until everything is smooth.
  6. Spoon on top of the provitas.
  7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  8. Cool and enjoy!
