The plan is to BBQ (still deciding between shrimp packets or some steak (pending supermarket sale papers), sit outside and enjoy the
Shelly's Red, White & Blue 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
Optional toppings (for days other than Memorial Day or the 4th of July)
Toasted or untoasted Unsweetened Coconut
Grated Sugar Free Chocolate
Chopped Nuts (Chopped Pistachios, Pecans, or Hazelnuts are great)
Protein Powder (CLICK Espresso Protein is awesome for this)
Non Fat Dry Milk
Powdered Peanut Butter
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. Place a fresh blueberry on each end.
Post-ops beware... you better hide a few of these suckers or make a double (or triple) batch because they will get gobbled up by non-ops before you can get to the dish.
Whatcha got planned for the weekend?
