Ricotta Crostinis Appetizer

28 May

I mentioned  a couple weeks back about a surprise birthday I was planning for my mom. Well, it went great! And a big part of it was how amazed the guests were at the delicious food :)

This is one of the appetizers I made. Crostinis with ricotta and a variety of toppings.

I had never made crostinis as an appetizer before, but when I saw something like this on here, they just looked too good.

So, I bought all the ingredients, and made a quick, easy, yet delicious appetizer that all the guests enjoyed so much. Getting low fat cheese will make this appetizer healthier than normal, and topping it with all fresh ingredients will make it even better!

With being on a sugar detox for 21 days, I’ve made these a few more times to cut those sugar cravings :)! Great sweet and savory options.
