Cannoli are a traditional Italian dessert pastry — a deep-fried pastry dough shell filled with a sweet creamy ricotta filling.
Delicious? Yes. Healthy? Heck, NO.
But if you managed to get your hands on a carton of our limited-edition seasonal Peppermint Mocha Shakeology, you can re-create the crunchy/sweet deliciousness of tradition cannoli, without all the sugar, butter, cream, and deep-frying.
In this recipe, we swap in phyllo dough cups for the fried shell and blended Peppermint Mocha Shakeology, almond milk, part-skim ricotta, and reduced-fat cottage cheese for a light, creamy filling.
