A Perfect Fall Dessert For One

After last night's workout, I was craving something sweet but didn't want to eat something heavy, like a cupcake. This baked apple with ricotta cheese hit the spot, providing the perfect blend of tart, creamy and sweet. The ideal dessert for a chilly fall evening!

This only took about 5 minutes to prepare. Maybe less.

Baked Apple with Ricotta Cheese*

1 apple (I used a red delicious apple)
1/2 cup water
Dash of cinnamon
1/8 cup part skim ricotta cheese
Drizzle of honey

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Core the apple, dice into bite size pieces and place in an oven safe dish. Add water and dash of cinnamon on top. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. After baking, strain off liquid and add apple pieces to a serving dish. Top with ricotta cheese and a drizzle of honey.

*I didn't measure the cinnamon and honey

What's your favorite apple recipe?

  1. While you're exercising the upper abdominal muscles, you are resting your lower abdominal muscles. As soon as you complete 15 reps of upper abdominal muscle exercises, then do a lower abdominal exercise set of 15 reps. A combination of cardiovascular exercise and weight training will get you better and faster results.
