Blueberry Topped Rice Cakes

I have been on a journey to eat healthier. I frequently snack on rice cakes but they get rather boring. It is a good thing I have my pals at the Blueberry Council to keep me in yummy recipes and ideas for one of my favorite fruits.

When I saw this recipe for Blueberry Topped Rice Cakes I couldn't wait to try it. I think you are going to enjoy it if you want a flavorful, filling snack that is low in calories.


Ingredients

  • ½ cup ricotta or cottage cheese
  • 2 teaspoons apricot preserves
  • 4 apple-cinnamon flavored rice cakes
  • 1 cup thinly-sliced fresh fruit (such as apple, pear, nectarine or peach)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together ricotta and preserves
  2. Spoon an equal amount on each of the rice cakes almost to the edge
  3. Arrange fruit slices in circles, on top of the ricotta mixture
  4. Top each with ¼ cup of the blueberries
  5. Serve immediately
