The United States has celebrated National Ice Cream Month every July since 1984. So if you feel like celebrating, this recipe is so easy, and best of all, you don’t even need an ice-cream maker to make it! Rich and creamy vanilla ice cream is dipped in decadent dark chocolate and topped with crunchy nuts in this delicious summer treat.
This deliciously unique ice-cream dessert has ricotta cheese as its star ingredient. A fantastically soothing detour from regular ice cream, when pureed the ricotta lends a rich creaminess without imparting a cheese flavor. This soft cheese is a good source of calcium and protein. Ricotta also contains selenium, an antioxidant that can help prevent arthritis, and is surprisingly lower in fat content than cottage cheese. The lemon zest adds a subtle summertime freshness. When served with fresh organic blueberries, this dessert is perfect for your red, white, and blue Fourth of July celebration!
