Mango-Lime Ricotta Parfaits

Serves: 4

This is a light dessert to finish off a heavy meal. I like cottage cheese better than ricotta, so that is what I use.

Total Time:


2 ripe mangos, peeled, pitted, and cubed
1 tablespoon sugar, optional, to taste
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 1/2 cups part-skim ricotta ricotta cheese, or cottage cheese


In a bowl, toss together mangoes and lime zest and juice. Taste to see if it is sweet enough for you. If not, add up to 1 tablespoon of sugar. Let stand 20 minutes. Top ricotta or cottage cheese with mango mixture, and serve.
