Strawberry-Ricotta Waffle Sandwich


Here's a sweet spin on a healthy breakfast-sandwich recipe. Other seasonal fruit, such as blueberries or sliced peaches, would be tasty toppers too.

Prep Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
10 mins
1 serving


  • 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


  1. 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
