Lemon-Raspberry Ricotta Parfait

In a need for a sweet snack that still allows those inches to fall off your waist line? This is it! Now, by the looks of the nutrition facts, it doesn't look all that good for you. But keep in mind that the sugar is coming from the honey, which is a natural sweetener, and also the fruit, so it's a lot better than granulated sugar.

I love the freshness of the raspberries, the sweetness of the honey and the tang of the lemon juice. I just cant say enough good things about this. Try it out in your next meal planning!
