Ricotta Cappucino

An Easy to make Dessert ~ Ricotta Cappucino

As the name says it is an easy Italian Dessert, adapted from Giada's version. I love cooking Italian food and when it comes to desserts, I love Giada's recipes most. I made this for the first time last year and It was an instant hit!!! It was super easy and delicious. And since then we have been making it quiet often. I forgot to post it on my blog, so this time when I made it, I took some pictures to post on my blog. I promise that you will definitely like it and will make it again and again and again!!

Source: Adapted from Giada's version

Cuisine: American
Prep time: 15 mins
Serves: 4
1/2 C sugar
1/2 t vanilla essence/extract
1 (15-oz) container ricotta cheese
1/2 T instant espresso powder(I used Indian brand, instant coffee powder Bru)
for topping/garnishing:
Handful of Pistachios, crushed
Pinch cocoa powder

  • Take sugar, ricotta cheese in a food processor, pulse it so that the sugar and cheese are fairly blended together.
  • To this mixture add vanilla extract and espresso powder (Indian brand instant coffee powder like Bru or Nescafe) and blend it for one min.
  • Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the with a rubber spatula. Blend for another minute.
  • Spoon the mixture into 4 small coffee mugs.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.
  • To serve, top the ricotta cappuccino with crushed pistachios. Sprinkle with cocoa powder.

DH is kinda addicted to this recipe and loves to make it when I am not in a mood to prepare any dessert. This easy to make dessert is my DH's favorite one. He always makes this when we have potluck or when there is GUYS only cooking event. Children also love eating it and its healthy too, if you minus the cappuccino from the recipe.

Padma's Kitchen turned 3, today!!

Padma's Kitchen is celebrating its 3rd year. Time flies so fast and three years gone by and what I started as a time pass just to come out of my boredom or you can say kill time has shaped up into a beautiful journal of my favorite recipes. This blog helped me making new friends and get along with so many foodie lovers like me. It totally a different world of people out there sharing same passion as mine "FOOD". And I am so happy that BLOGGING happened to me.... It was such a wonderful and fascinating journey.....

Though most of the time for the past one and half years I was dormant (b'coz of the arrival of my LO), My pledge this year is I will try to be regular from now onwards. Lots of things are happening at my kitchen, I am working on a new template, which has more features and options for new as well as old visitors, the design will be more vibrant and appealing. One more step I took regarding our health is to eat healthy ans stay healthy and fit. So you will be seeing more healthy recipes, tips and ideas of eating healthy, staying healthy and more about healthy diets too. I am excited that so much is at the horizon, but might take couple of months to see this new look here.

Past three years was a memorableexpedition filled with love, rich of life, exploring and learning new things everyday, 'Thank you' all for being a wonderful part of this journey.......

Happy 3rd Birthday my dear blog!!
