Coconut Milk Vanilla Berry Panna Cotta

Here’s my recipe for a Coconut Milk Vanilla Berry Panna Cotta that’s dairy-free and refined sugar-free. This Coconut Milk Vanilla Berry Panna Cotta has a good jiggle – as panna cotta should.

It is topped with a mixed berry compote for added freshness, but you can also just serve with fresh berries.

Top Tips:

I don’t recommend almond milk for this recipe, you need thicker milk – which is why I suggest coconut.

Make sure to bloom your gelatine first before you warm up the coconut milk in the saucepan.

The Berry Layer

The berry compote layer is very simple – I cooked some strawberries, blueberries, sugar (or maple can be used) and water.

I then topped this over the chilled and set pana cotta in the morning.
