Ricotta Cheese for Breakfast? Oh, yes!

It’s not often that I post for breakfast, but with the gift of ricotta cheese in our crates this week I had to share with you one of my favorite breakfast treats.  I usually put this back into the breakfast options come late spring and summer when berries are in season, but a friend of mine delivered a bunch of berries that were beautiful.  However, I am signed up for the Super Fruit share this summer and I couldn’t be more excited about that!  So, with the ricotta and the berries the stars have aligned!  Here is my ricotta cream and berries breakfast recipe:

Place about a cup of berries or fruit of your choice in a bowl and squeeze half an orange over the berries.  In season I also use some finely chopped mint in there as well.

I am am a tea drinker and often my half and half from the share is completely consumed by my tea drinking.  I thought since it is breakfast I should give the half and half it’s moment in the spotlight as well.  Enjoy!
