Weight Loss Surgery Friendly Dessert

Shelly's Strawberry Ricotta Parfait

1 cup Ricotta Cheese
2 Tablespoons (or more to taste) Torani Sugar Free Syrup
1 cup fresh Strawberries, sliced
1 cup Granola or Cereal

Mix Ricotta and Syrup in a bowl till smooth. Spoon 2 T. of the Granola (I used Flax Cereal) into glasses. Top with 2 T. of the Ricotta mixture and a thick layer of Strawberry slices. Repeat.

Note: You could use a variety of different SF syrups. I used Starbucks SF Cinnamon Dolce and it tasted like Cannoli filling. Other good choices would be SF Almond, Almond Roca, Vanilla Bean, or English Toffee. I buy my Sugar Free Syrups at Cost Plus World Market, Smart & Final, BevMo, Starbucks, or online at You could also use different fruits (raspberries, blueberries, or a combo)

I just wanted to say THANK YOU again for all the recipes and food ideas you share here. WOW! I think I would have tried all this before WLS, but now that I have it I am going to be trying your ideas. Everything sounds tasty and satisfying, makes me look forward to food. I just had my WLS a few days ago and have to be honest in that I have been thinking I probably made a big mistake as much as I love flavor or foods. But, looks like I will stillbe able to enjoy food after WLS too, but maybe more because as I think I seen you mention, I will be eating it slowly and enjoying it! Anyway, thank you again for the wealth of information here!
