Recipe by: Lisa Lillien (a.k.a. Hungry Girl)
Makes 5 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
- 10 large strawberries
- 1/4 cup light/low-fat ricotta cheese
- 1 natural no-calorie sweetener packet (like Truvia)
- 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
- 30 small blueberries (about 1/3 cup)
- Slice the stem ends off the strawberries, about 1/2 inch below the stem, revealing an opening in each berry. Use a narrow spoon to remove about half of the flesh inside each berry, allowing room for filling.
- Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each strawberry, so the berries sit flat.
- In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Mix until uniform.
- Spoon ricotta mixture into a bottom corner of a plastic bag; snip off the tip of that corner to create a small hole, and squeeze the mixture into the strawberries.
- Press 3 blueberries into the filling of each strawberry.
If you prefer to use sugar instead of no-calorie sweetener, you’ll need twice as much (2 packets or 2 tsp.). Made with sugar, each serving will have 33 calories, 6g carbs, and 4.5g sugars
