Cinnamon Ricotta Crunch
1 cup - skim ricotta cheese
1 tsp - ground cinnamon
2 TBSP - slivered almonds
1/2 cup - berries of your choice (Blueberries are my favorite!)
**Optional** - Sometimes, I add 1 packet of Splenda for a ltitle extra sweetness.
Place ricotta cheese into a cereal bowl. Mix in berries, cinnamon and optional Splenda. Top with almonds, and enjoy!
