This recipe is ideal for the puree or soft dietary stages after bariatric surgery. The ingredients blend easily to form a light and smooth consistency and the ricotta and yoghurt both provide a source of protein. For a refreshing breakfast option that is not too sweet, give this quick and easy recipe a go.

If you are in the soft dietary stage, an extra segment of pear, diced and added on top can be a nice addition. This option is great for taking to work in a small container.

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon + extra for sprinkling on top


  1. Using a mini food processor or stick blender, blend all the ingredients together until completely smooth
