Ingredients

  • ¾ cup whole milk ricotta
  • ½ cup mascarpone
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 2 tbsp sugar

Instructions

  • Remove the stems and leaves from the strawberries and rinse in cold water.
  • Place the strawberries and the sugar in a food processor and process until liquefied.
  • In large bowl whisk together the Ricotta, Mascarpone and Confectioners’ sugar
  • Using an electric mixer whip heavy cream and vanilla until fully whipped
  • Mix Strawberries into the Ricotta mixture then gently fold whipped cream into it, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour
  • Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Notes

*Strawberries always seem to make gelato or ice cream much harder so make sure you give it time to soften up before serving, Ice cream should not be eaten completely frozen, it should have more of a soft serve texture for the flavors to truly be fully appreciated
