Ingredients needed to make Chocolate Ricotta Mousse

chocolate ricotta mousse ingredients

The ingredients that we need to make this easy mousse are ricotta cheese, coco powder, powdered sugar and vanilla extract.

Yup! Just four ingredients go into making this simple dessert. Add them all in a mini food processor and pulse few times. You can also use a immersion blender. But if you are in no mood to remove any of your gadgets, a whisk also works.  Just whisk all the ingredients until you get a soft creamy texture.

When very few ingredients go into making a recipe, its important to use good quality ingredients.

Full fat ricotta cheese is what we will be using in the recipe.

A good quality coco powder is equally important.

When it comes to vanilla extract, go with the pure one.
