This Whipped Ricotta recipe is a lighter than air dip that's packed with flavor thanks to dried herbs, citrus zest, good oil, and flaky sea salt. Perfect for a party, no one needs to know how easy it is.
Yield:2-1/2 cups 1x
1/4cup cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons milk
Zest of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper
Pinch of Italian seasoning
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
Drizzle of olive oil
Bread sticks to serve
In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer with a whisk attachment and whip the cream cheese until smooth. Add the milk and ricotta and whip for 4-5 minutes until the cheeses are light and fluffy.
Spread your cheese mixture on a plate or platter to help maximize the surface area for flavorful toppings. You'll notice I didn't give specific measurements for any of the toppings. You should really go by feel. It depends on the size of your dish. Zest your lemon over the top, sprinkle the whole thing with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper flakes (or really anything you like) then drizzle the whole thing with your most flavorful olive oil.
