About this recipe

Fresh and easy recipe for a gluten-free dessert that only takes four ingredients. It’s soft, creamy, and delicious. Super easy to make and you can make it in advance and end it up at the moment.

I served it with homemade strawberry sauce and fresh strawberries, but it is a dessert that goes very well with many toppings.

This kind of dessert works, not only to receive guests or a party but also to have it ready in the fridge and eat right away.

Strawberry panna cotta ingredients.

How to make…

Blend and sift the strawberries. Set aside.

Heat the cream and sugar in a medium saucepan. Stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar dissolved. Bring just to boil and turn off the heat. Place the mixture in a large bowl and let the temperature go down.

In a very small bowl sprinkle gelatin over water. Heat gelatin for 10 seconds in the microwave until gelatin is dissolved.

Add the gelatin to the cream and then add the strawberry juice. Mix well.

Sift and place the mixture in the desired molds.

Let chill covered in the fridge for 6 hours at least.

Serve with strawberry sauce and fresh strawberries.

If you choose to serve panna cotta in a ramekin, dip one at a time into a bowl of warm water for a few seconds and run a knife around the edge of each ramekin. Invert in the plate and served with fresh fruits, sauce, or fruit compote.

For the strawberry sauce:

In a medium pan over medium heat place sliced strawberries, 4 tablespoons of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.

Reduce heat and cook until the sauce is thickened, but not too much because the sauce will thicken up slightly as it cools. This process takes about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool at room temperature.

Variations

Panna cotta is a very versatile dessert that can be served in different types of molds: ramekin, cups, jars…

It also pairs very well with many toppings like fresh fruits, sauces, dried fruits, etc. End it up with fresh fruits and honey is a very good option that I use a lot.

Storing

You can prepare the panna cotta and the sauce in advance and assemble the dessert at the last minute. You should always keep the jars/ramekins covered in the fridge and end them up at the last minute. If there is any leftover, store it covered in the fridge.
