  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 lemon, zested

    Easily turn a container of average grocery store ricotta into a creamy and elegant whipped lemon ricotta dip to serve with crackers or crostini. 

    Preparation

    Combine ricotta, heavy cream, and lemon zest in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whip 5 minutes, or until ricotta is light and fluffy.
