Fresh strawberries are sprinkled with a little brown sugar to release their fruit juice in this grab and go breakfast. Yogurt and ricotta are naturally sweetened with honey then layered between brown sugar strawberries and crunchy granola. This recipe comes to us from Madelyn of Karma Free Cooking.
- 2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 cups granola*
- 1 cup part skim low fat ricotta
- 1 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
- squirt of honey
*Many varieties of prepackaged granola are sold in grocery stores, but if time allows we suggest making your own.
Place the berries brown sugar together in a large bowl. Allow to macerate for 10 minutes.
Mix the ricotta, yogurt and honey together in a separate bowl. Mix well.
Pour a few tablespoons of the yogurt ricotta mixture in a glass. Place with brown sugar strawberry slices on the yogurt ricotta and then with the granola. Top with a few more brown sugar strawberry slices. Repeat the layering process in 2 other glasses and enjoy.
