Whipped Ricotta with Herbs and Honey


Creamy whipped ricotta topped with fresh mint, parsley, honey, and a hint of fresh lemon. Serve with grilled baguette or fresh veggies for a crowd-pleasing appetizer!



  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta (the freshest you can get!)
  • 2 TBSP fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons honey
  • Generous pinch of salt, to taste
  • 1 demi baguette, sliced


  1. Place ricotta in a small mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer with a whisk attachment, whisk ricotta for 1-2 minutes until it’s smooth and creamy. Place in a serving bowl. 
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together mint, parsley, lemon zest, olive oil, honey, and salt. Pour on top of the whipped ricotta and serve with grilled baguette slices and/or vegetable slices.

Grilled Baguette: I brush a bit of melted butter (or olive oil) on baguette slices and place on a hot grill pan (or grill) for 1-2 minutes on each side until toasted.
