  • 1/4

    cup slivered almonds {1oz}

    cup low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt {5.5oz}

Directions

Preheat oven to 275°F. Spread almonds on a baking sheet and toast, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. In a blender or food processor, combine ricotta, yogurt and sugar substitute and process until smooth. Spoon ¼ cup of the peaches into each of 4 parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture over the peaches. Sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon and ½ tablespoon of almonds. Top evenly with remaining peaches, remaining ricotta mixture, a pinch of cinnamon and remaining almonds.
