Traditional Panna Cotta, an Italian Delight!
The traditional way to make Panna Cotta is with heavy dairy cream, gelatin, sugar and vanilla. On a recent trip to Italy I splurged and ate the real deal. As I was savoring every little bite it occurred to me that I could make this with non-dairy vegan ingredients. As soon as we arrived back at the hotel I scribbled out a rough draft of the recipe I wanted to make once I returned home. The biggest switch was to find a non-flavored plant based gelatin. After some research and some fails I decided on agar agar powder. It is actually a dried product made from sea vegetables and is quite good for you. Anytime I can infuse a little healthy in a dessert recipe I get excited. Traditionally Panna Cotta is served with caramel or chocolate sauce and/or fresh berries. I like the fresh berries and a dash of cinnamon. I know you will enjoy this super easy recipe! Send photos of your Vegan Panna Cotta creations to me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
