¼ cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint or basil
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 frozen whole-grain waffles, toasted (see Tips)
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
½ cup sliced fresh strawberries
Combine ricotta, mint (or basil) and vanilla in a small bowl. Drizzle each waffle with 1 teaspoon syrup. Top one waffle with the ricotta mixture and strawberries and cover with the other waffle.
Tips: For a healthy frozen waffle, look for whole grains listed first (after water) in the ingredient list, with at least 3 grams of fiber per 2-waffle serving. And go for those that are at or below 200 calories, 4 grams of sugar and 350 mg sodium for 2 waffles.
