A quick and easy dessert with rich cheeses and sweet citrus. Incorporate oranges, blood oranges and tangerines for a beautiful array of colours and range of sweet citrus flavour.
12 ounces whole milk ricotta cheese
4 ounces mascarpone cheese
¼ cup heavy cream
6 tablespoons powdered sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups citrus segments (blood oranges, oranges and tangerine)
2 cups of granola
Mint, for garnish
Mix together the ricotta, mascarpone, cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla well in a medium bowl. Depending on the moisture content of your ricotta, you can adjust the amount of heavy cream to achieve your desired texture.
Place a few pieces of citrus segments in the bottom of your serving glasses. Add about 2 tablespoons of the ricotta cream for the next layer. Repeat with another layer of citrus segments and then ricotta, and then finish off with a few pieces of citrus segments on top. Top with granola.
