Lemon, ricotta and raspberry slice

Lemon ricotta raspberry sliceI would like to say that some wonderful moment inspired this recipe but to be honest, I had frozen raspberries left over from making the Chocolate raspberry coconut macaroons and half a tub of ricotta cheese in the fridge, so I came up with this slice. It is sweetened with stevia and raspberries, which complement the lemon, contains fibre from the coconut and protein from the ricotta cheese and eggs. So although the inspiration was nothing great, the slice turned out pretty tasty. The boyfriend and I ate most of it over the weekend.
