Strawberry Ricotta Parfait! (S) This quick and easy recipe from page 378 of your original Trim Healthy Mama book looks and tastes like a fancy dessert but is easy enough for any summer day! The Ricotta Cheese makes a nice protein base for a great breakfast, snack or dessert.
1/2 cup Fresh Strawberries, sliced 1/2 cup Skim Ricotta Cheese 2 to 3 tsp Gentle Sweet or 1 tsp Super Sweet Blend 1/4 tsp Vanilla or Almond Extract Slivered Almonds
Stir up the ricotta cheese with sweetener & extract. In a glass or bowl, alternate layers of the berries, ricotta mixture & slivered almonds.
The almonds make this an S, but you can leave them out or only include about a teaspoon or so for garnish and then you have a Fuel Pull dish. Just be sure you are using the skim ricotta cheese.
