Fruit and ricotta parfait
We love the simplicity of this recipe - it's a perfect early morning treat! Try it with any fruit or cereal combinations you have on hand. Serving ricotta this way offers a welcome switch from yogurt, and the parfait resembles one you might enjoy on a vacation to Italy, or to France, where they serve fromage blanc, which is similar to the light, airy texture of ricotta layered with fresh fruit. Substitute banana for a mix of sugar sprinkled fresh blueberries, blackberries and raspberries for a sweeter option.
