Mango Lime Ricotta Parfait.

August 16, 2016

I’ve always been a fan of ricotta (lemon ricotta pancakes anyone?). But when I found out you can whip ricotta in a mixer and it will take on a whipped cream-like consistency? That took my love for ricotta to a new level.

I was looking for a dessert to make for our family dinner and was inspired by Martha Stewart’s mango lime ricotta parfait recipe, and just modified it slightly. My mom suggested I whip the ricotta and this step is what made all the difference! Whipping the ricotta will make for a perfect consistency for the parfait since it becomes so smooth, velvety and creamy once it’s whipped. The mango and lime mixture just adds the perfect hint of tangy fruitiness to finish off the the dessert.
