Energizing, No-Fuss Breakfasts

Ricotta Cream with Berries

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll certainly want to give this tasty breakfast treat a try. Mix 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese, 2 teaspoons fat-free milk, 1 teaspoon powdered sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until well combined. In a separate bowl, microwave 1 cup frozen mixed berries for about 1 minute – then pour the warm berries (with the naturally-sweet syrupy liquid) into the ricotta mixture. Super-simple and indulgent, it’s a perfect meal for someone looking for a “morning dessert” that also offers up a hearty dose of nutrition.
