Vanilla pannacotta with fig and pistachio

Indulge in a decadent vanilla pannacotta naturally sweetened by coconut.

Panna cotta has long been one of my favourite desserts. It’s something I’ve always associated with indulgence, until recently, when I discovered a way to make this delicious Italian delicacy not only guilt free, but nutritious!

For this recipe you will need 2 pudding moulds (I used 75 x 42 mm pudding moulds), or you can use glass jars or tumblers instead.

What to do

  • 1. Mix the gelatine and water together, stirring immediately then let sit for a few mins until it becomes like a rubber ball.

  • 2. Put coconut milk, vanilla bean, cinnamon and rice malt syrup in a saucepan over low heat.

  • 3. Add gelatine, stir until gelatine to the saucepan and stir until dissolved.

  • 4. Pour into pudding moulds (or glass jars or tumblers) and set in fridge for minimum 2 hours.

  • 5. Once the panna cotta is set remove from mould (loosening carefully with a cheese knife and tap mould against your hand or dunk it in and out of hot water very quickly!) and serve with fig and pistachios.
