Cannoli Cream-filled Strawberries
Makes 4 servings
8 large strawberries, halved
½ cup low-fat ricotta cheese
½ tablespoon powdered sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Lemon zest
- Orange zest
- Fresh mint
Mix the ricotta and vanilla until combined in a medium bowl.
Slowly add in the powdered sugar. Spoon the mixture into a large zip-close bag or pastry bag fitted with a large tip.
Wash the strawberries with vegetable wash and pat dry. Cut the strawberries in half and remove the stem.
If using a zip-close bag, cut off one corner to pipe the cannoli cream onto the strawberries. Otherwise use a pastry bag to pipe.
Garnish with any of the optional toppings.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
