Creamy, luscious Cherry Almond Mascarpone Dip. This is the perfect light dessert with a gorgeous presentation that will impress your guests but takes just 15 minutes to pull together with 4 simple ingredients!



Almond Mascarpone Dessert Dip

  • 1 1/5 cups heavy whipping cream (ideally without carrageenan)
  • 6 ounces mascarpone cheese – ROOM TEMP (this is 3/4 of an 8oz container, no measuring needed)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Easy Cherry Syrup

  • 1 cup cherries, stems removed
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar (additional sugar can be added if you prefer a sweeter syrup) Swerve or similar alternate sweetener can be used.


Easy Cherry Syrup

  • In a small saucepan, add whole cherries and sugar over medium heat. Stir to combine so the cherries are coated in sugar. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the cherries get softened, mash them as much as possible to release all the juices. Continue to cook until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool in the pan for a few minutes. Strain through a sieve or cheesecloth over a bowl to capture all of the syrup, leaving the solids behind.

Almond Mascarpone Dessert Dip

  • **Be sure the mascarpone is at room temp or it won’t mix to a smooth consistency.
  • In a bowl, add the heavy whipping cream and blend until it begins to thicken.
  • Add the almond extract, mascarpone cheese and powdered sugar to the whipping cream. Continue to blend until a smooth, creamy dip forms – careful to prevent over-mixing as it can quickly turn to a butter-like consistency.

Plate it creatively with a bunch of fun items for dipping on a board or tray, drizzling the cherry sauce on top just before serving. Or, simply scoop it into a bowl and enjoy. You can also add this atop ice cream!


* Make sure the mascarpone is at room temperature to ensure a creamy texture
