Granola Strawberry Parfait


Granola...it isn't just for breakfast! This low-fat, whole grain dessert is just perfect - or parfait, the French word for perfect - for any night after dinner. Or after lunch, they're so luscious!

Serves: 6

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups low-fat ricotta
1/4 cup low-fat, plain yogurt
5 tablespoons tablespoons strawberry jam
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1 1/4 pounds strawberries, trimmed
1 1/2 cups Nature's Path Flax Plus Granola
fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Instructions

Puree ricotta, yogurt, and jam in a food processor. Stir in orange zest.

Reserve 6 small strawberries for garnish; cut remaining strawberries into thick slices.

Spoon 2 tablespoons Flax Plus Granola into each glass.

Top with 2 tablespoons of ricotta mixture and a thick layer of strawberry slices.

Repeat with a second layer of granola, ricotta, and strawberries. Top with a whole strawberry, and garnish with a few mint leaves.

Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed, up to 6 hours
