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.

  3. 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!

  4. This sounds delicious. I love figs and about anything to do with figs so I will make one of these soon.

  5. 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 :)
