Prep Time: 4 minutes

Cooking Time: 9 minutes

Refrigeration Time: 1/2 hour




  • 1 cup Frigo® Whole Milk Ricotta
  • 1⁄2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1⁄4 cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1⁄2 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1⁄2 cup crunchy granola
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam


Heat the Frigo® Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese and half of the milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat until it starts to simmer, 5 minutes.

In a medium bowl, whisk the maple syrup and cornstarch and then whisk in the egg yolks and remaining 1⁄4 cup of milk.

Whisk 1⁄4 cup of the hot ricotta mixture into the egg mixture until thoroughly incorporated, and then gradually whisk the egg-ricotta mixture back into the saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until the mixture boils and thickens into a pudding-like consistency, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter.

Cool slightly, stirring a few times to prevent a skin from forming. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the pudding and refrigerate until completely cooled and thickened, 1⁄2 hour or until chilled through.

To serve, spoon the peanut butter ricotta pudding into four individual cups and layer with fresh cut strawberries, jam, and crunchy granola. Will keep covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
