semifreddo on white plate

Honey-Rum Semifreddo

by Berkeley Wellness  |  

Semifreddo in Italian means “half-cold” and it refers to any number of desserts that are almost, but not quite, frozen. Sort of soft-serve Italian style. This semifreddo has the flavors of cannoli filling. Timing alert: This needs about four hours in the freezer. If you make it the day before (in which case it will be fully frozen), it needs to sit out at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes to soften slightly before serving.

Makes 8 slices


½ cup golden raisins

¼ cup dark rum

2 cups low-fat (1%) cottage cheese

⅓ cup part-skim ricotta cheese

⅓ cup honey

¼ cup fat-free sour cream
