Summer Berry Ricotta Parfait

July 5, 2019

This parfait starts with our fresh nor ricotta, slightly sweetened, and is layered with berries for a refreshing, healthy treat.

 

Ingredients:

16 oz nor ricotta 

3 tbsp local honey (sugar can be substituted)
1tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp lemon zest
1-2tsp fresh mint or basil, minced
2 blueberries
1 lb. strawberries, chopped

 

 

Directions:

Combine ricotta, honey (or sugar), and lemon zest in a mixing bowl.  Whisk with a hand mixer until well combined and the ricotta seems fluffy. 

Toss strawberries with chopped mint or basil, and set aside.
To assemble the parfaits, spoon 1-2 tbsp of the sweetened ricotta mixture to the bottom of a tall glass.  Top with a layer of strawberries, more ricotta, a layer of blueberries, then repeat layers until glass if full. 

Garnish with a sprig of mint or basil, if desired.   

 

Notes:

* Sweetened ricotta mixture can be done ahead of time and covered in the refrigerator until ready to use. 

 * Assembled parfaits can be covered and refrigerated 4-5 hours in advance
