Fig Ricotta Milkshake
When we were in Santorini, I tried fig-ricotta ice cream at a local restaurant and I couldn’t believe what I had been missing all these years. Creamy vanilla ice cream with hints of fig and an underlying taste of ricotta. It was a beautiful and delicious blend of something unexpected.
So in honor of that memorable trip, I chose a fig-ricotta milkshake made with 4 simple ingredients and a quick run through the blender. If you have a Trader Joes near you, this recipe will be even easier.
If you don’t, you can find fig butter in more upscale grocery stores or specialty shops. I even found some recently at TJ Maxx. I highly recommend buying Trader Joe’s ricotta as well. Many ricotta cheeses out there have no flavor but I find that TJ’s brand does a great job of having a creamy and classic ricotta taste that’s perfect for desserts and savory dishes.

What a fun combination. I was hesitant when I first read the name, but now that I think about it – it makes perfect sense! Yum. Yum!
Yes, at first it does sound strange. But then you taste it and wow!
Yo, you girls killed it again! This sounds AWESOME- I’m a huge fig fan, so sign me up.

Thank you for making this milkshake! I loved the fig ice cream we had in Santorini, too, but I don’t ever see fig in ice cream here in the US. Somehow it never occurred to me to make it myself. Can’t wait to try this!
Me neither. We need to change that pronto.
This sounds delicious. I love figs and about anything to do with figs so I will make one of these soon.
Me too! Figs are amazing!
What an interesting combination of flavors! I have yet to try fresh figs .. 🙂
Fresh figs are the BEST. I wish they weren’t a seasonal fruit…
I’ve never heard of fig ice cream or fig butter, I feel like I’ve been missing out on something special! Definitely need to find some fig butter so I can try this recipe 🙂
Fig butter is a fairly new thing to me too. But now we are hooked. We eat it with a baguette and cheese too 🙂
Some really great photos, love what you’ve made!
