Ricotta Cheese and Fruit?

(image source)

When my sister told me she was eating ricotta cheese with blueberries for breakfast, my first thought was “gross!”. Then my mom started eating healthier and told me she liked it too. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try… I actually love it! I had 1/2 cup of fat-free ricotta cheese topped with frozen blackberries (that I microwaved for a few seconds and blended). I did add a touch of Splenda because the fruit wasn’t very sweet. It was less than 100 calories, tasted good, and was surprisingly filling. I’m now starting to look for more dessert recipes that include ricotta. Have you used it for a sweet dish?
