Bring on summer recipes, because I’m excited for longer daylight in the evenings and dining outside with my family. Today I’m sharing a recipe for Skinny Lemon Ricotta Parfaits with Blueberries. This simple recipe has only 5 ingredients and the lemon/blueberry combo mixed with the creamy ricotta will have you longing for summer. Each parfait is topped with a delicious fruity blueberry crumb topping from Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars at Walmart to give this creamy dessert a tasty crunch.
Now I’ll share with you how to prepare your own Skinny Lemon Ricotta Parfaits with Blueberries with Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars. This recipe is delicious, healthier and easy to whip up with only 5 ingredients.
First, you’ll want to visit your local Walmart store to pick up a variety of Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars. You’ll find them in the breakfast bar section in Walmart. I picked up three different flavors, but I used the blueberry bars in this particular recipe. Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars are gluten-free with all sugars coming from natural fruit and fruit juice. It has no GMOs and is vegan. Plus, it tastes just like pie! Yum!
- 16 oz Part Skim Ricotta
- 1-2 Cups of Blueberries
- 1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
- Natural Sweetener in Vanilla (8 drops) or Honey (to taste)
- Betty Lou’s Fruit Bar in Blueberry (crumble into small pieces)
- Optional Garnish: Lemon (sliced in thin rounds)
Blend together the ricotta, lemon juice and natural sweetener/honey until soft and creamy.
Layer the blueberries first, then the ricotta and repeat until you’ve topped it with one last layer of the ricotta. Sprinkle some blueberries and 1/8 of a crumbled Betty Lou’s Fruit Bar in Blueberry on top.
I served these parfaits in cute glass coffee mugs and with wooden spoons. But, you can serve them in small bowls or glasses. You can add a slice of lemon on top as an attractive garnish.
These Skinny Lemon Ricotta Parfaits with Blueberries will make the perfect healthier-for-you snack this Spring and Summer. Plus, it is low carb! Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars are available at Walmart and Betty Lou’s Inc! Which Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars flavor would you try first?
