Mixed Berry Ricotta Parfait Recipe
This parfait recipe is made with naturally sweetened ricotta, lemon zest, fresh mint, and mixed berries
Servings: 6 servings
- 15 oz fat-free ricotta cheese
- 3 Tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp lemon zest, divided
- 1 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
- 1-2 tsp fresh mint, minced
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
In a mixing bowl, add ricotta, honey, vanilla and 1 tsp lemon zest. With a handheld mixer, mix until ricotta is whipped and everything is combined. Set aside.
Toss chopped strawberries with fresh mint, and separately toss blueberries with remaining 1 tsp lemon zest.
To assemble parfaits, add a couple spoonfuls of ricotta mixture to the bottom of tall clear glasses. Top with a layer of blueberries, more ricotta, a layer of strawberries, then repeat until glasses are full. Garnish with a sprig of mint if desired.
Parfaits may be served right away or assembled, covered and refrigerated for up to 4-5 hours.
Instead of ricotta, plain non-fat yogurt can be used.
To make smaller parfaits, this recipe can be stretched to serve 12.
