This recipe is great for all those low-carb dieters. I am in the first phase of a low-carb diet and was really missing my Frappucino's. This is an excellent substitute.

Mmmm.... I'm on a low carb diet and this was a wonderful treat! I'm not a big fan of ricotta cheese but in this you have no idea that's what you are having. Make sure you use strong coffee because mine was too weak. Read More

I made several adjustments because the original recipe was too chalky and not chocolatey enough for our taste. We used half and half instead of powdered creamer and doubled the halfand half cocoa and vanilla extract. We also topped it off with whipped cream! Raised the carb count but it tasted just like Starbucks! Read More

I used 4 packages of sweetener but did not get the sweetness I was looking for. Perhaps I will use a liquid sugar-free flavoring next time. Read More

I thought this was really good. I made it low carb by using three packets of Splenda sugar free vanilla syrup sugar free chocolate syrup and leaving out the powdered coffee and cocoa powder. I blended the mixture and then poured over ice. There were a few bits of ricotta in the drink but it didn't bother me. Texture was fine. Read More

This was very good for a sweet treat! I used sugar free vanilla Torani syrup and 1/8 splenda and half and half instead of the powder creamer. Very good! Read More

Ick. There wasn't enough ricotta in this to make it creamy but enough in it to make it have a weird grainy texture. Flavor wasn't terrible but the texture definitely wasn't good. Read More

Didn't care for this and thought it tasted chalky. But then I've never been on a low-carb diet so maybe this is normal. Read More

This wasn't sweet enough or chocolately enough for my tastes so I added some sugar free chocolate syrup. The ricotta also did not blend up very well for me. I make a simlar drink with cottage cheese that seems to do fine in my blender so I don't think I'll use ricotta in a drink again. Read More
