Panna Cotta. It sounds fancy and it tastes delicious but you’ll never realize how simple it is to make. Only 5 ingredients in a restaurant quality dessert. It is basically a gelatin made with heavy cream. If you can make a box of jello you can make my Raspberry Panna Cotta. It just needs some heating and stirring. That’s what makes this Panna Cotta Recipe Easy.
Raspberry Panna Cotta Recipe Easy, Low Carb, Grain Gluten Sugar-Free, THM S, Keto
Panna cotta used to be the dessert I would order anytime I saw it on a restaurant menu. I prefer it’s cool creaminess to creme brulee (I don’t love that burned sugar crust), cakes, ice creams, and almost all the rest.
I don’t remember the first time I tried it but I think it was when I was in college and my best friend and I went to the ChikaLicious Dessert Bar in New York City. It was a splurge, $15 just for dessert, but it came in three courses and I couldn’t resist trying it. A dessert app, dessert main dish, and dessert dessert? I was there. And it was amazing.
My Raspberry Panna Cotta is inspired by this recipe by David Leibovitz which was the first panna cotta I ever made at home.
