Full of protein… you can use coconut vegan yogurt instead of the ricotta too.   The three minutes include opening the refrigerator pulling out the Ricotta.  Of course you can use other types of fruit, I just happen to love mangos and it makes this feel extra decadent.

layering the ricotta Mango Parfait- just that quick!

You could also use:

  • berries,
  • peaches,
  • plums or
  • apricots would also be great choices.

Mix in a bit of honey or other natural sweetener, zest a bit of lime, lemon or orange (if you so desire) and you are done!
