a ricotta mousse recipe, made 3 ways
The traditional ricotta mousse recipe, made in 3 easy ways.
Italian cheese recipes
We were in Costiera lately, and you can’t come back from that wonderful land without mozzarella, scamorza, caciocavallo and ricotta.
That’s why I’m making lots of cheesy recipes lately:
- marinated stracciatella
- infused hot oil caprese salad
- burrata cream bruschetta (oh, that’s a glorious one!)
I also had a lot of ricotta and remembered something about nonnas, ricotta and an easy way to make merenda (= snack).
Isa, my greengrocer foodie friend told me everything I needed to know (grazie!).
Here’s an Italian nonna nosh, for you :-). A very traditional recipe.
the ricotta mousse recipe made 3 ways
- for each
- 1 cup of ricotta
- 1 teaspoon of confectionary sugar + more if needed
- Choose between (or make them all):
- Jam (blueberry for me)
- Nutella or the organic alternative that may be even tastier
- Whip the ricotta with the confectionary sugar, until soft and peaky.
- spoonful of Nutella
- two or four tablespoons of Italian espresso coffee
- spoonful of jam
- Mix well.
- I added a little more sugar to coffee and jam ricotta mousses. You: taste and add.
- Enjoy or refrigerate until time to serve.
I’ve been wandering in a girl world lately. But remember: not all those who wander…
My niece’s baptism was a triumph of pink, sweetness and girly DIY. Sister, E. and I made a great teamwork :-).
Then, at my friends M & F Costiera wedding, favors and place cards where amazingly handmade by F’s crafty mom. Sea salts from around the world (we got Bolivian Mirroir salt and blue Persian salt) and marine, candid napkin rings. I fell in love the moment I saw the samples (friend privileges).
