By now you know that we have a sweet tooth.  Yep, we live for our sweet treats! And although we could eat chocolate all day long, we try to use some self control every now and then 😉 and if we can get our fill by eating something healthy, we’re in! The sweet strawberries with the rich and creamy ricotta in this dish hits the spot! Strawberries are so sweet and juicy that we often recommend trying them if you have a sweet tooth craving– check out a few other recipes featuring strawberries that hit the spot! 🙂  Try this healthy Strawberry Raspberry Lime Sherbert or these guilt-free Strawberry Banana Breakfast Cookies.

(Psst.. if you love bruschetta, check out our book for another delish bruschetta recipe, The Nutrition Twins’ Veggie Cure)   To keep things delicious and interesting, we like to make a few changes once in awhile with this Strawberry-Ricotta Bruschetta.

Strawberry-Ricotta Bruschetta

Serves:  8

Ingredients

  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 8 thin slices whole wheat baguette, toasted lightly
  • 1/3 cup lemon non-fat or low-fat ricotta cheese*
  • Balsamic vinaigrette

Directions

Spread ricotta on baguette slices. Top with strawberries and drizzle with balsamic.  Enjoy!

*If you can’t find a lemon ricotta cheese, you can drizzle some fresh lemon juice and lemon zest on non-fat or low-fat ricotta before topping with strawberries and balsamic.

We love this recipe because it’s perfect for an appetizer or a dessert.  If you want to make this more like a dessert, try using 1/3 cup of plain ricotta mixed with 1 tablespoon honey instead of lemon ricotta cheese.
