Whipped Ricotta Dip with Lemon and Olive Oil


Whipped ricotta dip is one of my favorite Italian-inspired dips as it is light, creamy, and very versatile. And it's easy to make!

I’ve found the best (and easiest!) way to whip up ricotta cheese is with a blender. I’ve made it in a stand mixer too, but then it tends to be too full of air and bubbles.

Add ricotta, olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper to a blender. Wash and dry the lemon. Zest entire lemon over ricotta in blender.

Pulse ingredients two to three times to incorporate lemon zest, then blend on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute until desired consistancy is reached.

Serve with crusty bread, crackers, or fruit slices.
