  • 6 individual serving glasses
  • 2 medium sized mixing bowls
  • Hand held mixer


Ricotta Mousse

  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier liqueur

Strawberries Romanoff

  • cups strawberries washed, hulled and quartered
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Grand Marnier liqueur
  • 1/4 cup roasted, sliced almonds
  • mint leaves for garnish


Ricotta Mousse

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the ricotta, mascarpone, sugar and the Grand Marnier until well combined.
  • In a separate medium sized bowl beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form.
  • Gently fold the whipped cream into the ricotta mixture using a spatula, until well incorporated
  • Spoon the ricotta and mascarpone mixture, equally, into 6 individual small sized serving glasses while leaving about 1/3 of head space.
  • Cover the glasses with cling wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to 24 hours if making ahead.

Strawberries Romanoff

  • About 1/2 hour before serving, stir together the quartered strawberries, sugar and Grand Marnier.
  • Set aside for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to meld.
  • When ready to serve, spoon the strawberry mixture over the individual ricotta mousse while distributing it evenly.
  • Garnish each serving glass with a couple of whole berries the toasted sliced almonds and with a sprig of mint leaves.


The serving glasses I used are of a 3/4 cup capacity.
I filled the serving glasses to about 2/3 full as to allow some head space to fill with the macerated strawberries.
If you don't have small serving glasses then small glass serving bowls would also work.
For an extra special touch you can also get a little more fancy and serve the ricotta mousse in martini glasses or even small cognac glasses.
