Recipes Peach-Almond Parfaits (Dessert)

Number of Servings

    1/4 cup slivered almonds
    2/3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
    2/3 cup low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt
    2 tablespoons granular sugar substitute
    3 medium peaches, cubed (2 cups)
    Ground cinnamon


Heat the oven to 275°F. Spread almonds on a baking sheet and toast, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.  In a blender or food processor, combine ricotta, yogurt, and sugar substitute and process until smooth. Spoon 1/4 cup of the peaches into each of 4 parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture over the peaches.   Sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon and 1/2 tablespoon of the almonds. Top evenly with remaining peaches, remaining ricotta mixture, a pinch of cinnamon, and remaining almonds.
