Canyon Ranch Whole Wheat Quick Bread

 “We have been serving this coarse-textured, low-fat bread since the day we opened in Tucson. It is so popular with our guests that many of them order loaves of it to take home with them when they leave. It is especially good toasted and spread with a little of our Fitness Cheese or Fresh Apple Butter.” — Bringing the Spa Home | Canyon Ranch

Canyon Ranch combines Ricotta Cheese and Greek Yogurt to make a spreadable "Fitness Cheese" in place of higher calorie cream cheese. You can easily customize it by snipping fresh herbs, dried fruits, or even a vanilla bean into it.

    This is also excellent with “YoChee.” Drain a tub of Greek Yogurt overnight until it is as thick as cream cheese. Customize with herbs and spices, a dab or jelly or jam, or dried fruits. This thick, spreadable yogurt-cheese is a great replacement for cream cheese.
