Why We Love It

This recipe is so easy to make and tastes just delicious! Kids will love it as a healthy alternative to their regular sugar fix.

Jam has most of the health benefits of fruit, most notably, heart healthy, cancer fighting antioxidant power. It can help reduce risk of developing various cancers, particularly mouth, stomach, and colon-rectum cancer.

Ginger is commonly used to treat various types of "stomach problems," including motion sickness, morning sickness, colic, upset stomach, gas, diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

What You'll Need

1 Tbsp x Ricotta Cheese

1 Tbsp x Fruit Compote ( Jam )

3 x Ginger Nut Biscuits


    Soften the ricotta cheese for a few seconds in the microwave. Philadelphia cream cheese would work well here either.

    Mix the soften cheese with a jam of choice such as strawberry, raspberry or blackberry which would all work well.

    Use digestive biscuits or ginger nut biscuits and simply spread the mixture on top. The biscuit will naturally get a bit softer and the topping will firm up as the cheese cools. Sandwich with another biscuit for less mess or top with fresh fruit if desired!
