Whipped Ricotta with Rosemary Honey

This whipped ricotta with rosemary honey is the perfect appetizer for any dinner party or gathering. It’s incredibly light, refreshing, and so easy to *whip* up. literally.

Whipped Ricotta with Rosemary Honey

The key to the perfect whipped ricotta is whipping or blending at the very lowest speed! If you whip it too fast, it tends to get runny, so just keep a close eye on it.

We like to serve this whipped ricotta with grilled bread or crostini’s- it’s just SO good. It also pairs well with proscuitto or smoked salmon. Both are fantastic and you can’t go wrong!!

Another reason I love this dish for dinner parties or date nights is because it can be prepped ahead of time and simply stored in the fridge before serving. And it’s always a hit!!
