“Originally came from Moosewood. We love it for breakfast or dessert. If you use strawberries, don't use frozen. The jam should be the same flavor as the fruit. Cherry is fantastic. Cooking time is the time the flavors rest to 'marry'.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For a smoother, mousse like texture, blend the ricotta cheese a couple minutes in the blender.
  2. Fold in the fruit and jam.
  3. If you plan to serve it all right away, fold in the whipped cream.
  4. Let it set 20 minutes in the fridge.
  5. If you only plan to use a portion now and the rest hours later, save out the whipped cream. Let the ricotta fruit mixture rest to let the flavors "marry".
  6. Spoon out whatever portions you pneed and add the whipped cream.
  7. Obviously you could use full fat or non fat for the cheese and whipped cream.
