Whipped Beet Ricotta

If you’ve never had whipped ricotta, it’s a must try! It’s one of our absolute favorite appetizers to enjoy as a family or to make for a party. So simple, yet so scrumptious! Brandon and I will even make a batch of it just for ourselves to enjoy on a date night in with lots of veggies, lightly toasted bread and crackers to dip in it. Mmmm…mmmm!

For springtime, I wanted to spruce up our regular whipped ricotta with the vibrant flavor and color of beets. Such a beautiful and tasty twist. We’re obsessed!

Whipped Beet Ricotta

Just blend ready-to-eat beets together with lemon juice and gently mix it in with the already whipped ricotta. The results are a light and airy dip with an absolutely beautiful look and taste. It’s an appetizer I’m eager to make often because I know everyone enjoys it. The opportunities to make it are endless: brunch, dinner party appetizer, date night in, ladies lunch, summertime or springtime snack board, bridal shower, baby shower, engagement party…

It’s easy, beautiful, and oh so delicious! Simply make the dip and set it out on a board or platter with toasted baguette slices and a variety of fresh vegetables. Some perfect springtime vegetables that accompany this whipped beet ricotta so well are:

  • Asparagus
  • Carrots
  • Radishes
  • Snow peas
  • Broccolini
  • Cauliflower
  • Endive leaves

  1. I have never had whipped ricotta but it looks fabulous! This grazing platter would come in handy over this long Easter weekend. Thanks so much for sharing and hope you’re having a lovely Easter.

    1. Hi Katerina! Thank you! Whipped Ricotta is fabulous! I hope you get to try it soon. Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

    1. Hi Kenna! I don’t recommend freezing ricotta unless you are going to be cooking with it. The texture just won’t be the same once you freeze and defrost it to eat it as is. Hope this helps. Enjoy!
