Fresh Fruit with Cannoli Cream

Yield 6 servings
Prep: 12 minutesIn traditional cannoli, a well-known Sicilian dessert, pastry tubes ("pipes") are deep-fried and filled with sweet ricotta cream. We eliminated the time-consuming pastry, greatly reducing the calories and fat. But we kept the best part--the cannoli cream--and spooned it over fresh fruit.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons tub-style light cream cheese, softened
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 medium kiwifruit, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon grated semisweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds, lightly toasted
