Our crazy simple and unbelievably delicious dessert last night. A take on one of my childhood favorite Sicilian desserts: the cannoli. This version is waaaay better for you. Super sweet Farmer's Market strawberries. Creamy protein packed ricotta filling. Heaven.
Best part... you can eat a few of these without guilt. Can't say the same for the real deal. I will be making a tray of these for the 4th of July for sure. Soooo good!
Shelly's Strawberry Cannoli
12 Large Red Ripe Strawberries, washed & cored
1/2 cup Ricotta Cheese
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)
dash of Cinnamon
Grated Sugar Free Chocolate
Chopped Nuts (Chopped Pistachios, Pecans, or Hazelnuts are great)
Wash and core strawberries. Leaving a hollow in the berry. Set aside.
Mix ricotta, SF syrup and cinnamon together till well combined.
Spoon mixture into a snack size Ziploc bag. Seal.
Cut end off and pipe mixture into hollowed strawberries. Dip into optional toppings.
