I scaled this back for 3 serves and used 250 grams very light ricotta cheese for 3 serves and another 1/2 cup of sliced peaches to fill the wine glasses that I was serving in (that took them to 3/4 full) and I finely chopped 6 of the toasted macadamia nuts to serve on top. I would suggest using a pot thickened yoghurt as I think it would be thicker than the one I used hence I had to use more ricotta which made the mix a little grainly but overall a light and delicious dessert enjoyed by the DS, DM and myself. Thank you katew, made for Make My Recipe.

I wasn't sure how much ricotta to use so I used an equal amount of low-fat ricotta and fat-free vanilla yogurt. The flavor is very nice but I think I would have preferred to use only yogurt as the ricotta made the parfait a bit grainy. All in all this is a very nice, refreshing dessert that I would make again.

Lovely dessert and very simple to prepare. As the quantity of ricotta to use was not stated, I decided to omit it . I used a good quality low-fat vanilla bean yogurt and a family size can of sliced peaches.My family loved these. Photo also being posted. Reviewed for ZWT8 visit to Australia/NZ.
