Today I am going to share the simplest, dreamiest summer dessert with you. It’s got a short ingredients list, won’t heat up your kitchen, and will take you all of 5 minutes to put together. Sound good?
Behold: incredibly smooth honey-ricotta cream draped over seasonal blueberries. You may use any other type of fruit that strikes your fancy. A mix of berries or peaches would be perfect. You can also dress it up in a variety of ways. Consider adding lemon zest or vanilla paste to the ricotta. Or sprinkle a few lavender flowers over your dessert bowls. Personally, I’ve been enjoying as is for a cooling summer treat.
Fresh Blueberries with Honey-Ricotta Cream

Place ricotta, sour cream, and honey in the blender. Blend until smooth and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. This can be made up to 2 days ahead of time.
Place a few tablespoons of the cream in the bottom of your dessert bowls. Top with a generous handful of blueberries and another dollop of cream. Serve while still cold.
