Peach & Pine Nut Parfait


Serves 4


This Mediterranean-inspired treat is sublimely satisfying yet light as air.

2 cups peeled & pitted peaches, coarsely chopped
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. raw turbinado sugar
1/2 tsp. Chinese five spice
1 1/4 cups skim milk ricotta
2 Tbs. 2% organic milk
2 Tbs. local honey (something robust!)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
3 Tbs. toasted pine nuts, divided

  1. Toss peaches with lemon, sugar, and five spice.
  2. In medium bowl, combine ricotta, milk, honey, and vanilla. Whisk briskly until smooth and creamy. Fold in 2 Tbs. pine nuts.
  3. Dividing among four narrow parfait glasses, start with peaches, then a layer of ricotta, then peaches, then ricotta again. Sprinkle remaining pine nuts on top, and chill until ready to serve.
