-1 tub 454 g of ricotta (light)
-500 mL Nutriwhip Light
-42 Italian lady fingers
-2 cups strong coffee (cooled)
-2 tbsp Kahlua (I added a bit more!)
With the whisk attachment, first, beat the Nutriwhip on low speed to avoid splashing. Slowly increase to high speed until peaks form. Gently fold in tub of ricotta. Set aside.
Next, pour 2 cups of cooled, strong coffee into a shallow bowl. Add 2 tbsp of kahlua and mix. Dip both sides of each lady finger in coffee mixture. Doing this quickly avoids soaking up too much liquid and keeps each lady finger in one piece. Repeat this step for remaining 20 lady fingers.
In a 9" x 13" inch pyrex dish, line up lady fingers, sugar side up, in 3 rows of 7.
Spread a thick layer (half of ricotta mixture) over lady fingers. Repeat soaking and lining up for reamining 21 lady figures. Spread a thin layer of ricotta mixture over second layer. For a pretty finish, fill piping bag with ricotta mixture.
Use Wilton star tip #1M and pipe remaining mixture in waves over top.
Sprinkle with cocoa powder and add a pinch of cinnamon if desired.
