**HEALTHIER GHOST GRAVEYARD DESSERT**

I made this dessert for my two little monkeys and they loved it! I thought I would share it with all of you.
It is a small dessert so make sure they eat it after dinner.

What makes this recipe more healthy? I used ricotta cheese which is high in protein and coconut sugar which is a natural sugar.

Here is the recipe below…

INGREDIENTS
•4 –4 oz little Mason jars
•1 1/3 cups of Light Ricotta Cheese
•5 tsp of coconut sugar
•1 tsp of vanilla
•1 tsp of cinamon
•2 Chocolate Organic Cookies (Like Sweet Earth)
•2 NON-ripe bananas
•12 dark chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS
•Put the ricotta cheese in a bowl. Use a hand blender or mixer to blend the cheese until smooth (no curds).
•Once the cheese is smooth, add the coconut sugar, vanilla, and cinamon in the bowl and blend it again.
•Spoon in the cottage cheese mix evenly in each of the jars.
•Mash your two cookies into crumbs and put them evenly on top of the cheese mixture to create dirt.
•Cut your bananas into thirds. Take the 4 ends to use as your ghost.
•Turn your chocolate chips upside down and put them into your bananas to create a face.
•Place your bananas on top of “dirt”.
•Serve and enjoy!
