Strawberry Ricotta Ice Cream is fresh and creamy. It tastes like the ice cream you get in a tiny cup with a tiny spoon from an expensive ice cream shop. But it is incredibly simple to make at home.
What’s a girl do when she has both ricotta cheese and heavy cream to use up? Make ice cream, of course. Luckily, I also had 1/2 pound of strawberries that needed to be eaten. Toss everything in the blender, dump it in the ice cream machine, and twenty minutes later you have a fantastic frozen treat. Ice cream is one of the easiest desserts to make. Truly. This has about 5 minutes of hands on time.
The funny thing is I don’t even like typical store bought strawberry ice cream. The one and only time I bought Neopolitan ice cream in the last five years, my family, ate all the chocolate and all the vanilla and there was a wall of uneaten strawberry left in the center. After that, I decided to just buy a vanilla and a chocolate and for the Neopolitan combo. But this we loved. I could’ve just drank it straight from the blender if I wasn’t planning on serving it to our company that evening.
