Ingredients

Ricotta Cream

  • 1 1/2 cups ricotta
  • 6 tbsp plain greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey
  • lemon zest from one lemon
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla

Raspberry Filling

  • 2 cups raspberries, carefully rinsed
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Process all of the ricotta cream ingredients in a food processor for 1 minute.
  • Then scrape down the sides and process for another 30 seconds. The ricotta mixture should be smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer the ricotta cream to a container with a cover, and let it sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours. This will allow the ricotta cream to thicken and the flavors to meld.
  • While the ricotta is in the fridge, gently stir together the raspberry filling ingredients, reserving a few raspberries for the top of the parfaits.
  • Allow the fruit to stand on the counter for 30 minutes.
  • To assemble the parfaits, spoon about 1/4 cup of the ricotta cream into the bottom of 4 parfait glasses or other similarly sized cups.
  • Divide up the raspberry filling among the cups, and then top each parfait with the remaining ricotta. Garnish with a raspberry or two and serve.

Notes

  • Variation: For an adults-only variation, add a tablespoon or two of orange liqueur - such as Cointreau - to the raspberries instead of the sugar.
  • Other Fruit: This parfait is also great with blueberries or blackberries or mix of different berries! It rather depends on what berries are available in your market.
