Lemoncello Mascarpone Shake Recipe

Our Lemoncello Mascarpone Shake Recipe is a sweet spring treat that’s bursting with the unique Lemoncello liquor flavor! My first wonderful experience with Lemoncello liquor was as a digestif (served at the completion of a meal) in Rome, Italy. It was such an enjoyable experience that I tucked a bottle into my suitcase to bring home with me. Truth be told, I’ve been saving it for special occasions and to create recipes with… Like today’s Lemoncello Mascarpone Shake Recipe! It’s bursting with lemon flavor both in Lemoncello, plus fresh lemon zest, then we’re adding vanilla ice cream, mascarpone cheese, vanilla bean, and whole milk. Yummmy!!!

Lovin’ our Lemoncello Mascarpone Shake Recipe

I was feeling like a little something sweet and relaxing as we’re in the middle of dealing with all the effects of the current pandemic. I’m of the belief that a balance of healthy foods and comfort foods are essential to keeping us feeling good in body and spirit–always! AND especially during times of difficulty and stress like we are currently experiencing. Nurturing ourselves is so important as we move forward into the coming weeks.

We love our ‘Cooking with Ruthie’ family and each one of you wherever you’re living on this beautiful planet.

We’re grateful for all the kind comments and messages from you on Instagram and Facebook. It is our intention to continue to support and love each other. During these times, we will continue to share, as we always have, on the blog and social platforms. So, lets sit down and enjoy a Lemoncello Mascarpone Shake Recipe together! 🙂  

What’s the difference between a smoothie and a shake? 

Most people love smoothies and shakes, some don’t really know the differences between them because after all the both cold and refreshing, drinkable, and delicious! In my opinion it all comes down to ice cream. . . yes, it’s true!  Smoothies do not have ice cream, candy bars, cookies or pies in them. Smoothies are filled with healthy for you ingredients like fruit and veggies and healthier forms of protein and dairy.  

Don’t get me wrong. . . I enjoy them both as probably most of you do too!  I just enjoy smoothies on a more regular basis and shakes wellllll they’re a more special occasion or dessert kind of treat. 

A look at Lemoncello Liquor

• Limoncello (Italian pronunciation: [limonˈtʃɛlːo]) is an Italian lemon liqueur mainly produced in Southern Italy, especially in the region around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the coast of Amalfi, and islands of Procida, Ischia, and Capri.

• Limoncello is made by steeping lemon zest (peels) in highly concentrated ethanol or vodka until oil is released, then mixing the resulting yellow liquid with simple syrup.

• Limoncello is considered a digestif (Apéritif and digestif), which is an alcoholic beverage traditionally drunk after a meal. A digestif can often relieve the unpleasant sensation of having overeaten after a large meal.

• Limoncello is the Italian word referring to an intensely lemon-flavored liqueur.
