Creamy and delicious, this ricotta cheese takes only three ingredients to make and is ready in no time!  This wonderful recipe comes from Maria over at She Loves Biscotti.  You can learn more about Maria here.  I will be checking out more of her delicious recipes, as this one was perfect!!

To make it even easier, I used my Deluxe Cooking Blender:

Best Blender for Smoothies—and Soup!

Blenders aren’t just for smoothies anymore. Our innovative blender has settings that heat up to 220˚F (104˚C), which means it doesn’t just blend—it cooks.

With a cooking blender, you can make everything from smoothies and milkshakes to soups, jams, alternative milks, and nut butters. With eight preprogrammed settings and two custom settings, there’s no guesswork. The pitcher has a 6-cup capacity for hot food and 7-cup capacity for cold food, and comes with a tamper, dual-sided cleaning brush, strainer bag, boil-over guard, and a cooking guide with more than 60 recipes.

Let’s jump right in!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups whole milk do NOT used ultra-pasteurized/ultra-filtered milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice OR white vinegar

Instructions

Add first TWO ingredients, in the order listed to the Deluxe Cooking Blender. Replace and lock the lid. Push the wheel to get to the CUSTOM HEAT setting.  Turn wheel to select 185°F/85⁰C.  Push the wheel again to set the timer to 00:00 minutes. Press the wheel to start.

Once the blender beeps and is done, carefully remove the lid, and add in the lemon juice or white vinegar.  Stir to incorporate, and you will notice that the curds will separate from the whey. Replace the lid and let rest for 15-20 minutes.

Remove the lid, and strain into the strainer bag.  Drain 5-7 minutes for creamier ricotta cheese, and up to 20 minutes for drier cheese. 

Use immediately, or store when cooled up to three days in the refrigerator.

Notes:  To make this on the stove, add the first two ingredients to a large pot (can double recipe), but you will have to stir often and watch the temperature to make sure the milk does not scorch or go beyond 185°F/85⁰C. 

Follow the remaining directions, stir in the vinegar, cover the pot, and use a ladle to scoop cheese into a cheesecloth to drain.

Please be SURE to use whole milk that is NOT ultra-pasteurized, otherwise you will not be able to make this recipe.

To freeze, store in a freezer-safe container for up to one month. 

That’s it!  I hope that you’ll give this a try, and please leave a comment to let me know what you think about this recipe.  I would love to hear from you. Let’s make great food together!!
