Low-Point Creamy Cannoli Parfait

Did you know by enjoying a regular cannoli pastry, you are consuming anywhere from 10 to 17 (or more) points? But they're soooo good! That's why I had to create something very similar for just a little over 5 points! Indulge in this sweet and creamy cannoli parfait after your low-point dinner. It's sure not to disappoint!

Low-Point Creamy Cannoli Parfait
Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup part skim Ricotta cheese
- 2 Tbs honey
- 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. all spice
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 Tbs chocolate chips
- 4 reduced-fat vanilla wafers
- 1 Tbs chocolate cool whip (or regular lite cool whip)
Combine all ingredients except wafers and cool whip. Break up two vanilla wafers and place in the bottom of two dessert/parfait cups. (If you don't have parfait cups, use small ramekins). Spoon mixture on top of wafers into each cup. Top with a tablespoon of cool whip and either place another wafer on top (as shown), crumble the wafer and sprinkle on top, or leave off wafer and add just a few more chocolate chips. Enjoy immediately or chill until ready to devour. :) If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
Total servings - 2
Serving size - 1
Points per serving - 5.8 (with vanilla wafer on top); 5.3 w/out wafer
