I lovingly refer to this dessert as an adult pudding cocktail. No, it does not taste like pudding. The color and texture reminds me of the childhood treat. This treat, my friends, is for adults.
My ingredients gave this recipe a bit of international flair. I used Brazilian Sugar, Italian Espresso & Ricotta, and Virgin Island Rum.
I actually made this last fall when I was fortunate to locate imported fresh ricotta. Italians sure know how to handle dairy products. The ricotta has a bright, clean, milky taste. Yummy!
The recipe comes together very quickly. I chose to mix it in a food processor for a creamy consistency. The blended mixture is then poured into individual serving cups and refrigerated overnight. Next time I will beat the mixture with 2 forks for a firmer texture. Garnish with espresso beans before serving. This is a wonderful blend of coffee and rum with a delicious creaminess. I loved it!
