Ricotta Lemon Ice Cream Tips:

  • An alternative topping that can be used is a drizzle of honey and finely chopped nuts of your choice. Chop a 1/4 cup of some of your favorite type of nuts and add those into the mixture. After frozen, drizzle some honey over the top. These two flavors will perfectly compliment the subtle tartness of the lemon.
  • Top this homemade ice cream, with semisweet chocolate chips. The rich chocolate chips are the perfect addition to sweet ricotta cheese.
