Light Raspberry-Ricotta Fool
A fool is usually made with fruit and whipping cream. We’ve lightened the original by using ricotta cheese, and added a burst of citrus flavour, while maintaining this dessert’s made-in-10-minutes appeal.

Instructions Set aside 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the nicest-looking berries. Add 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sugar plus vanilla to remaining berries and mash lightly with a fork. Let sit. Using a hand mixer, beat ricotta cheese. Add cream and mix until smooth. Briefly beat in remaining 2 tsp (10 mL) of sugar plus orange zest. With a spoon, stir mashed berries into ricotta mixture, then divide among four glasses or dessert bowls. Garnish with reserved berries, and serve.
