STRAWBERRIES WITH LIMONCELLO RICOTTA CREAM!
Although I’ve made many desserts with ricotta, I’ve never once thought of putting it in my blender, until I saw Bobby do it on the Food Network. Something magical happens when you do that, the texture comes out smooth, creamy and rich tasting. You have to sweeten it up a bit, with a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar, then the sky’s the limit for flavoring! Amaretto, white chocolate liqueur, I think Bobby used Grand Marnier, but my favorite is Limoncello, I used about 2 tablespoons per 1lb. of ricotta. Throw everything in the blender, and make it the consistency you want, I made mine thicker than Bobby’s, just make sure it all smooths out! No one will ever know this is low fat!!
This is a favorite of mine which I make in the summer and winter.
Melt a little butter in a saute pan, add some brown sugar, when it all melts down and blends together, add some dark rum. Place your pineapple in the pan and cook it low and slow, turning each piece till everything soaks in and creates a slightly thick sauce.
Place it all in a pretty glass and dollop with a nice portion of Mascapone that has been sitting out at room temperature!
It’s warm, creamy, and the rum takes it over the top!!
Both of these desserts are quick to make, and taste’s oh so decadent!!
