Strawberry and Coconut Panna Cotta step by step
- For the strawberry panna cotta: Wash strawberries, remove stem and cut into pieces. In a small pot pour in cream, add sugar and raspberries. Bring to boil and let simmer for 10 minutes on low heat..
- Soak three (red) gelatin sheets for 5 minutes in cold water. The red sheets are only to support the colour of the panna cotta. When you use white/colourless gelatine the panna cotta will have a blushing pink tone..
- Put the hot strawberry and cream mix in a food processor. Mix and add gelatine. Now you can – if you like – sift out the tiny cores and pour the panna cotta in a bowl or glasses. Let come to room temperature and the let set in the refrigerator for 3 hours until gelatinesed..
- For the coconut panna cotta: Soak three sheets of gelatin for 5 minutes in cold water. Heat coconut milk with sugar on medium heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Add liqueur and gelatin..
- Let cool for 45 minutes to almost room temperature, stir from time to time so the liqueur has no chance to drop to the bottom of the pan..
- Then pour it on top of the strawberry panna cotta. And let set in the refrigerator until firm. Before serving top with cut strawberries and/or coconut flakes..
- You can, of course, also serve the panna cottas each by themselves. In this photo I combined the strawberry panna cotta with a balsamic vinegar sauce (100 ml balsamic vinegar, 100 ml red wine, 50 g sugar in a small pan, heated and reduced to one third). That's a suprisingly good combination. The coconut panna cotta is great with a raspberry sauce. :).
- For the photo on top I made a salad of straberries and mint leaves with agave syrup as a refreshing topping. Enjoy!.
While you may be tempted to reach for a can of low-fat coconut milk, coconut cream is what gives this panna cotta all of its flavor. Traditional Panna Cotta is made with a lot of dairy, a decent amount of sugar, traditional gelatin (eek!) and then it's molded. The coconut panna cotta is also delicious on its own. If for any reason (like basic life stuff) you didn't have time to make the hearts, you can just go head and make it without the hearts.
