Step by Step Instructions
- Prepare the waffles and allow them to cool for 2 or 3 minutes before topping.
- If using, mix the ricotta and coconut butter. Spread the mixture in an arch pattern over the top of the waffles. Reserve a small amount for later.
- Starting with the red layer, arrange the fruit layers in a rainbow arch pattern atop the ricotta mixture. Put small dollops of ricotta mixture at the ends of the rainbow to make small "clouds"
- You can also use yogurt or whipped cream instead of the ricotta cheese mixture, simply use one them instead when the recipe calls for the other mixture.
