I love this! It's low in calories and really good. Frozen mixed berries were used to prepare this. It'll be even better when fresh berries are back in season. Made for PRMR Holiday Special

wow this is great. I used only blackberries. But I'll try with other fruits another time. The ricotta mixture is so good that after I ate my serving (on the photo), I did more ricotta but to eat like that alone without fruits. I used more amaretto. Yummy! Thanks Maito :)

We loved this! I increased the fruit and also added blackberries to the mix. I skipped the amaretto - delish! Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having again this summer!

OH BOY did we delight in this wonderful dessert dish. Added a little more amaretto and a tad more sugar into the ricotta but honestly it was just perfect! Luckily I had strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Not a bit was left! Thank you so much! ZWT4 Babes in Italy.

My neighbor made this for dessert tonight and shared....lucky me! It is SO good. Fresh blueberries that we picked together this morning, lovely strawberries....just no raspberries around. Perfect light dessert. Healthy and felt very adult though I know the kids would dig into this too. I would serve this for company feeling confident it would be loved and loving that it was quick to make. Thanks for sharing! ZWT4 Italy.

What a great way to use fresh berries! The almond flavor really stood out. I didn't have any raspberries, but the blueberries I picked this morning and fresh organic strawberries were perfect for us.

Lovely dessert and no guilt trips. I've sourced frozen blueberries and have bought bags of them to have on hand and was very glad to use them in this delightful and light recipe. The perfume of the Amaretto comes through subtly but effectively and should not be left out.

I love this healthy dessert. The amaretto really makes this special. Thanks, Maito, for a nice alternative, I actually prefer this to berries and cream! Update: this is also really great on waffles for breakfast!

This was a perfect ending for our "Girls Martini Night" . I served it in large wine goblets with the cookie like other reciewers did...I added a titch of whipped heavy cream to make it alittle more richer and creamier...we loved it...

I made this for an Italian dinner party, and it was a big hit. Since berries are out of season, I made them with frozen (from Trader Joe's) and it was still quite good. Also, instead of chopping the frozen strawberries, I put them in a blender along with the lemon juice and sugar, which created a nice texture. Lastly, I used full-fat ricotta, because that's all I could find, and next time I might use half mascarpone. Oh, and the leftover fruit sauce is great with yogurt for breakfast. :)
