Sweet Ricotta and Strawberry Parfaits

Ingredients
1
pound fresh strawberries, trimmed and halved or quartered
1
teaspoon sugar
1
tablespoon snipped fresh mint
1
15 ounce carton part-skim ricotta cheese
3
tablespoons light agave nectar
1/2
teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl combine strawberries, sugar, and the 1 tablespoon snipped mint; gently stir to combine. Let stand about 15 minutes or until berries soften and start to release their juices.
  2. In another medium bowl combine ricotta, agave nectar, vanilla, and lemon peel. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  3. To assemble, scoop 1 tablespoon of the ricotta mixture into each of six parfait glasses. Top ricotta mixture in each glass with a large spoonful of the strawberry mixture. Repeat layers with the remaining ricotta mixture and strawberry mixture. Garnish with additional fresh mint. Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 4 hours.
