Honey Ricotta Mousse

March 10, 2015

Author Notes: I recently had a cannoli made with sheep's milk ricotta, it was really good. So I decided to use it in this recipe. Standard milk ricotta works well too. Also feel free to substitute walnuts for other toppings: strawberries, cherries, shaved chocolate, pistachios ... Flirty Foodie

Makes: 2


  • 9 ounces sheep's milk ricotta (or cow's milk), drained
  • 1/2 cup cream, well chilled
  • 5 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
