How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…why not try this super light and healthy dessert this Valentine’s day.
This Panna Cotta is so easy to prepare and it uses coconut milk as the base, and lime zest to add zing.
Prep time 5 mins |Cook time 10mins |Cooling time 1hr |Total time 1hr 15mins
- neutral vegetable oil or cooking spray for ramekins
- 400ml coconut milk
- 1/4 cup natural cane sugar
- 1 tsp lime zest (1 lime)
- 1/2 tsp agar powder
- pinch of salt
1.Firstly, spritz ramekins with cooking spray or lightly brush with vegetable oil.
2. Whisk together the coconut milk, sugar, lime zest, agar powder and salt in a saucepan and place over a medium flame. Bring to a simmer, stirring with a rubber spatula, continue simmering until the milk thickens slightly and lightly coats the spatula, it should leave a line when you swipe the spatula with your finger.
3.Pour the mixture into a measuring cup and divide it between the prepared ramekins. chill until set, for about an hour.
4.Run a knife around the edge of the ramekin, invert onto a plate, shaking firmly until the Panna Cotta slides out.
For The Roasted Berries:
1 cup mixed berries, I used blackberries, blueberries and raspberries
1/2 tbsp lime juice, I used the same lime that I zested earlier
1 tbsp sugar( or to taste)
Preheat oven to broil
In a bowl, toss berries with the lime juice and sugar, spread berries into a baking dish, broil the fruit for about 5-8 mins or until the blueberries start to pop.
Transfer berries and juice into a bowl and allow to cool
Finally, spoon cooled roasted berries over the Panna Cotta
