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

How to Make Cannoli Ice Cream w/ Pistachios & Dark Chocolate


  • 1Place 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!
  • 2Pour in your ice cream maker and follow the manufactures instructions to freeze.
  • 3In the meantime, roughly chop your pistachios and chocolate-both traditional additions to cannoli filling-into small chunks. About 5 minutes before done, add these.
  • 4Once 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!
