How to use up leftover mascarpone

  • No-churn ice cream
    Whisk 150g mascarpone with 170g condensed milk and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Pour into a freezable container, fold in 1 tbsp of your favourite fruit purée, freeze for an easy ripple ice-cream.
  • Quick tiramisu
    Lightly soak 1/2 pack of sponge fingers in cold, strong coffee and a splash of Kahlúa or rum. Mix 150g mascarpone with 2tbsp icing sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Break the soaked fingers and later alternately in individual glasses with the mascarpone, then dust with cocoa powder.
  • Extra creamy risotto. Stir 4tbsp mascarpone into risotto once it’s cooked to boost the rich, creamy texture.
