Made this after I had met an Italian Uverse employee. Told him about it and gave him the recipe.
I loved it! Great recipe!

1 pint

Prep:

40 Min

Method:

Ice-Cream Maker

Ingredients

1/2 c
whole vitamin d milk
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
small pinch
salt
1 3/4 c
good quality ricotta cheese
1/4 c
raw pistashios
2 oz
dark chocolate, at least 70%
additional scoop(s)
of pistashios and dark chocolate for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place sugar, vanilla, salt and milk in blender and blend until sugar is dissolved. Add ricotta and puree until very smooth; it should be a similar consistency to cake batter. If you taste it, be careful not to just sit down with a spoon and eat the whole thing. Yeah, it's that yummy!
2
Pour in your ice cream maker and follow the manufactures instructions to freeze.
3
In the meantime, roughly chop your pistachios and chocolate-both traditional additions to cannoli filling-into small chunks. About 5 minutes before done, add these.
4
Once the ice cream is finished, it will be a thick, soft-serve consistency. You can fill some organic cones, dip into additional chopped nuts and chocolate, and freeze to make cannoli cones, or just spoon into a freezer safe container for at least a couple of hours, till it's very firm. Then you can scoop and serve on cones or in bowls. Garnish with additional nuts and chocolate! Yum!
