I got this recipe from a co-worker and I believe it may have come from Weight Watchers, not sure. It is a delicious dessert which can be made with low fat ingredients.
- 1 angel food cake, cubed
- 1 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
- 2 cups non-fat vanilla yogurt
- fresh fruit (whatever is in season or your favourite)
- Cube cake.
- Mix cheese and yogourt together.
- Prepare your choice of fruit (strawberries, cherries, peaches, raspberries etc.).
- Layer cake in glass bowl.
- Next layer is cheese and yogourt.
- Layer fruit.
- Repeat each layer.
- Top with fat free or low fat yogourt or Cool Whip.
The possibilities are endless here! I was constrained by what I already had in the house. I made three versions, one with cherry preserves, one with frozen wild blueberries, and one with bananas (and coffee yogurt). They were all good, but the cherry was our favorite, it tasted kind of like pie! I think another reviewer's suggestion of using pie filling is a great idea. I used a one to one ratio with the ricotta and yogurt, so you could really taste the ricotta. It was great!
This was sooo good !!! I was a little afraid of making this but , what a suprise ! The ricotta/yogurt mixture tasted a little like cheesecake to me ! It was wonderful !! I used fresh strawberries . I think you could get away with using a light fruit pie filling if you wanted . I assembled this about 2 hours before dinner and let it chill . Just the perfect dessert , light , fruity and creamy ! Thanks for a new favorite dessert !! Can't wait to try it with different fruit !
Simple and delicious. I subbed ricotta cheese with whipped cream and used plain yogurt. I cut the cake into 3 layers and slathered each one with the yogurt mix, layering with strawberries as well. Wow, decadent!
