  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
