I made panna cotta for the first time ever! Dairy is something I have often because I can tolerate it well but if you can’t you can sub the milk and heavy cream in this recipe with full-fat coconut milk! When we do have dairy we choose full fat instead of skim because it is more nutrient dense. Dairy has vitamins like E, A and K which are all fat soluble which means they are in the fat of the dairy product. So don’t fear the fat and maybe make some panna cotta😉
Rosewater Honey Panna Cotta
¼ cup milk
1 ¼ cup heavy cream*
1 ½ tsp. gelatin
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. rosewater
- Add the milk and heavy cream to a saucepan. Pour the gelatin over the top and let it sit for 3-5 minutes to hydrate it
- Place on the stove and heat until the gelatin is dissolved. Keep in eye on the pan, stirring frequently and do not let it boil
- Once dissolved remove from the heat and add the honey and rosewater. Stir to dissolve the honey
- Pour into ramekins and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
*You could try to sub the heavy cream and milk with 1 1/2 cups of full-fat coconut milk (not regular coconut milk) to make this dairy free!
