Ricotta and Fruit Breakfast Parfait

This was something a bit different for breakfast for me and the kids. Stephen especially liked eating his breakfast out of a wine glass! It is a very balanced breakfast, containing protein, dairy, fruit and carbohydrates, so is great as a school morning breakfast, and since it is best prepped the night before, it makes for a quick and easy morning.

Ricotta and Fruit Breakfast Parfait

2 teaspoons powdered gelatine
300g low fat ricotta (you can use non fat if it not for children)
2 tablespoons icing (confectioners sugar)
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
3/4 cup low fat milk
500g assorted berries, crushed (thawed frozen berries are great, otherwise any soft fruit works well)
2 cups granola/muesli

  1. Sprinkle gelatine over 1/4 cup boiling water in a small heat proof jug; stir until completely dissolved.
  2. Using electric beaters, beat ricotta, sugar and zest in a medium bowl until combined. Add milk gradually and beat until thick and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the dissolved gelatine mixture. Chill for 20 minutes until beginning to set.
  4. Spoon into parfait glasses alternately with berries and granola. Refrigerate overnight until set.
