Strawberry Panna Cotta
Servings: 4 servings
This strawberry panna cotta is the most romantic dessert ever. A simple vanilla bean panna cotta is topped with a sweet strawberry coulis and chilled to perfection.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup heavy cream or whipping cream
- 1/2 packet gelatin powder (1 tablespoon)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pound strawberries fresh or frozen
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in a tablespoon of cold water.
Heat milk, heavy cream, vanilla, and sugar in a saucepan until sugar is just dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
Add the gelatin to the cream mixture, then pour the mixture into serving glasses. If desired, lay serving glasses on an angle in a muffin tray to create a slant in the panna cotta.
Place panna cotta in the fridge for approximately 60 minutes or until set.
Meanwhile, heat all ingredients for the strawberry coulis over medium heat in a saucepan. Continue stirring occasionally as the strawberries break down and the sugar dissolves.
If desired, strain the coulis through a sieve to ensure it is smooth. (I prefer it without straining).
Allow strawberry coulis to come to room temperature. Once completely cooled, spoon overtop of the panna cotta. Serve.
