Whipped Ricotta Dip

Sharing is caring!

This easy whipped ricotta dip makes the perfect snack. Top toast, use veggies or crackers and get to snacking with this awesome dip.

Kayla and I have been in the food experimenting stage lately.

Last week we made our own homemade ricotta cheese and it turned out amazing. The flavor was better than any store-bought ricotta I have ever had.

Then, Kayla decided she wanted to take the ricotta further and came up with this awesome whipped ricotta dip.

How to make Whipped Ricotta Dip

To make this dip, all you need are a few simple ingredients —

  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups whole-milk ricotta
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • coarse sea salt + fresh cracked black pepper + lemon vinaigrette
  • toasted bread for serving

The cool thing about this recipe is that you can change it up to suit your fancy. We love a good tart lemon flavor, so we added a simple lemon vinaigrette to ours. If you want it sweeter, you can drizzle honey on top.

If you would like it to have a more garlic flavor, roast a head and mix the garlic into the dip.

Once you make the dip, you can use it to put on toast, or use your toast as a dip. You can also take crackers and use this as the centerpiece of a charcuterie board.

For us, we like to always take things up a notch. Kayla toasted some bread slices.

Then we slathered on the whipped ricotta dip. We had some fresh baby tomatoes so we add them to the top and drizzled with more oil. Then broiled in the oven for a couple of minutes for one of the most delicious snacks I have had in a long time.

Since you are stuck at home right now with not a lot to do, why not try and experiment with some easy recipes?
