BREAKFAST FRUIT WRAP

4 Oct

2 tsp ‘fruit only’ strawberry preserves

1 tortilla, whole wheat (I used the flat out wraps)

2 Tbsp reduced fat ricotta cheese

1/3-1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries

2 Tbsp sliced almonds, toasted (I used walnuts)

  • Spread preserves on tortilla.  Top with ricotta cheese. Carefully top with  sliced fruit. Sprinkle w/sliced almonds.
  • Starting from one end, roll tightly.  Wrap in foil for neater eating.
  • Variation:  Spread tortilla with apricot preserves and use sliced fresh peaches.

This made a delicious and filling breakfast.  Half of this would also work as a very nice dessert.  Here’s how I ate it, with a spritz of spray butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon splenda.
