DEAR LOVER OF NO-BAKE DESSERTS
I totally get you, after dinner you’re craving something CREAMY but LIGHT and just sweet enough.
Then these Skinny ricotta tiramisu parfaits will satisfy you all the way!
I’ve made use of the enticing combination of low-fat ricotta cheese and almond milk to replace the mascarpone that’s in a classic tiramisu.
It’s almost a heavenly Cannoli in a glass kind of experience.
1 cup low fat ricotta cheese
4 tablespoons almond milk
4 tablespoons confectioners sugar- divided use
¼ cup cold brewed French or Italian roast coffee
1 tablespoon rum
8 dry ladyfingers - crushed into crumbs in a plastic bag with a rolling pin
¾ cup fresh raspberries
1/2oz (1/2 square) dark chocolate - grated
In a small bowl; mash together the ricotta, milk and 3 tablespoons of the sugar with a rubber spatula until mixture is smooth.
In another small bowl; stir together the coffee, rum and remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.
Put about 2 tablespoons of ladyfinger crumbs into the bottom of each glass. Top with a scant 2 teaspoons of the coffee mixture. Top with a scant 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture. Repeat the layers with coffee crumbs, coffee mixture and ricotta. Cover each glass with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.
Divide the berries among each of the four glasses. Sprinkle with grated chocolate*
*To grate chocolate use the large holes of a box grater and grate onto a sheet of wax paper.
