Anyone else missing restaurant date nights? Yeah me too! I want to keep doing my part to stop the spread, stay safe, and ease the burden on healthcare workers, but I’m itching for a fancy night out. So to break up the monotony, I’m creating a fancy night in for my family. With a decadently refreshing S.Pellegrino Essenza and a Citrus Ricotta Mousse recipe, I’m bringing a fine dining experience to my kitchen table.
It’s amazing how a little TLC and planning can turn an average day into something special. So today, I am ditching the sweatpants for my favorite date night dress and whipping up a surprisingly easy, yet elegant dessert to switch up the homebound mood. And to really set the mood, I am trading in our boring drinks for the lavishly flavorful S.Pellegrino Essenza Tangerine & Wild Strawberry.
Citrus Ricotta Mousse
Time: 20 min.; Serves: 4-6
Recipe created to compliment the flavors of S.Pellegrino Essenza Tangerine & Wild Strawberry!
- 15 oz. whole milk ricotta cheese
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 4 tbs. of lemon curd
- Dried or fresh strawberries (sliced)
- Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the whipping cream until thickened. Add the powdered sugar and continue to mix until stiff peaks form.
- In a separate bowl, combine the ricotta cheese and 2 tbs. of the lemon curd. Then add this mixture to the whipping cream bowl and lightly mix.
- Smear 1/2 tsp. of lemon curd along the side of dessert glasses. Pour the mousse into the glasses and then place in refrigerator to chill.
- Add the strawberry garnish on top of each mousse and serve with S.Pellegrino Essenza. Enjoy!
I always find that adding S.Pellegrino Essenza to the mix instantly elevates a dining experience. It’s delicate, has gorgeous packaging, and refreshing bubbles give it the versatility to add unique depth to an event. S.Pellegrino Essenza also has zero calories and zero sweeteners, so it can be added to festivities without guilt. Best of all, it’s available for curbside pickup or next day delivery from Walmart.
Now all that is left is to put on some classic tunes on our dusty record player, light a few candles, and enjoy a change of pace with my lovely husband and daughter.
So make sure to elevate your at-home festivities by signing in at Walmart.com and adding S.Pellegrino Essenza to your cart.
