This Whipped Cannoli Mousse is a light and fluffy version of cannoli cream. It has a hint of cinnamon mixed into sweetened ricotta whipped cream.
I bet this would be amazing as a cake frosting. When I was in high school I always requested Cannoli Cake for my birthday. I can't wait to make my own version.
This is such an easy and fast dessert. It has only 5 ingredients and takes about 5 minutes to make but the flavor can't be beaten. There is just something special about the flavor of cinnamon combined with ricotta cheese. If you've followed my blog at all you know that
How to Make Mousse
Making a mousse is simple. It is basically a light and fluffy pudding. To get it to be light and fluffy you gently fold the pudding, or in this case ricotta cheese into whipped cream.
Other Flavors of Mousse
Make a chocolate mousse using my chocolate pudding as a base.
Love raspberry? I already have a raspberry mousse in the form of a tart. You can spoon the mousse into bowls instead and just top with a few berries.
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup ricotta cheese
- ¼ cup Joy Filled Eats Sweetener (or see alternatives in recipe notes)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ cup chocolate chips optional
- Whip the whipped cream. Set aside. In a food processor or blender grind the sweetener and cinnamon until it the consistency of powdered sugar. Add the ricotta cheese and blend until smooth. Fold the ricotta cheese into the whipped cream. Spoon into serving dished and sprinkle with chocolate chips, if desired.
