Ricotta "Sundaes" With Gluten-Free Granola

Instead of curling up with a pint of ice cream, make a lighter "sundae" instead: use creamy low-fat ricotta and your favorite sundae toppings, like dried fruit and chocolate chips.

Instead of curling up with a pint of ice cream while watching a romantic comedy on Valentine’s Day, try a lower fat ice cream-alternative instead. This special sundae recipe uses low-fat ricotta cheese to lessen up the calories, while maintaining a creamy taste. Top your "sundae" with crunchy add-ins like KIND Healthy Grains Clusters along with a sprinkle of dried fruit and coconut flakes for a fun, crispy texture. (Save any extra granola and fruit for snacks later on during the week with milk or on top of yogurt.) A sprinkle of dairy-free chocolate makes this sundae gleefully indulgent. So go ahead, dig in all you want.
