The Richest Gelato

I made a ricotta-based gelato today, with a flavor reminiscent of cannoli filling.

Serves: 4-6
A velvety, rich gelato made with ricotta. This is extremely dense and you will only want a little bit!
  • 1 cup fresh ricotta
  • 1/4 cup cream or half & half
  • 1/8 cup Ramazzotti Amaro
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp each lemon & orange zest
  • 2 egg yolks
  1. Stir together ricotta, half & half & amaro until ricotta is smooth (no lumps)
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir until eggs are fully incorporated
  3. Add to ice cream maker and mix according to ice cream maker instructions

This was so incredibly dense and thick and velvety smooth; I have never made a gelato like this before. I could inhale the whole thing, except that it’s too rich for that!!!
