Honey-Ricotta Mousse with Fresh Fruit
A light and fluffy dessert that's also good for you. Brimming with nutrition from homemade ricotta cheese and raw honey, this dessert is the perfect summer treat. Use whatever fresh, local fruit you can find for the garnish.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 4-6



  • 1 pound Homemade Fresh Ricotta or store-bought fresh ricotta, drained
  • 2 tablespoons honey, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla bean paste or extract
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • To garnish: Toasted almond slices, sliced fresh strawberries or raspberries, and fresh mint leaves


  1. Process ricotta, honey, vanilla bean paste, and salt in a food processor until very smooth, about 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed.
  2. Whip heavy cream in a large bowl until stiff peaks form, 1 to 2 minutes. Add ricotta mixture, and gently whisk to combine. Using a rubber spatula, fold mixture until evenly incorporated, 3 to 5 times. Divide mixture evenly among 4 glasses or bowls. Cover and refrigerate until firm and set, at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  3. Garnish mousse with toasted almond slices, sliced fresh strawberries, mint leaves, and a drizzle of honey. Serve immediately.
