  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Ricotta Ice Cream

Because of its creamy texture, ricotta ice cream would be great paired with berries. You could either sprinkle them on top or you could mix them right in while you are making the ice cream.

Try making a banana split and add the berry ricotta ice cream to the top to create an elegant dessert.

You could also use Vanilla cookies to dip in the ice cream!

For a fun treat, place a scoop of berry ricotta ice cream beside pancakes in the morning for the kids.

The Ricotta kind of threw me when I read the title, but it looks great and I'll have to try this the next time I make lasagna and have leftover Ricotta.
