Summer Strawberries ‘n Almond Creme

This delicious, light, and fruity dessert is the perfect way to indulge without overdoing it. An added bonus? It’s super quick and easy – just what us busy parents need!

Here’s what you’ll need:
4 servings

¼ C slivered almonds
2 C whole strawberries, cleaned
1 C low fat ricotta cheese
2 Tbsp calorie free sugar substitute (I like baking stevia – you can use less if you prefer)
¼ tsp almond extract

Here’s how to make it:

1. In a small, dry skillet on medium-low heat, toast almonds, stirring frequently – about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant. Transfer to a cool plate immediately. Allow to cool completely.
2. Hull and slice strawberries and evenly divide among 4 cute dessert bowls.
3. In a separate bowl, mix ricotta cheese, sugar substitute, and almond extract until smooth. Dollop evenly among sliced berry bowls.
4. Sprinkle strawberry and almond crème dessert bowls with sliced almonds. Take a picture (because you made it so pretty) and enjoy!

Here are the facts:

This recipe makes 4 servings. Each serving carries 120 calories, 6 grams of fat, 11 carbs, and 9 grams of protein. Not too shabby!!

    I have just started eating Ricotta cheese and find that I like it better than Cottage Cheese. I usually add some cinnamon and splenda to the ricotta, mix and Yum nice treat
