Silky Vanilla Panna Cotta

Healthy Fact of the Day

While panna cotta is an indulgent dessert, you can make it a bit healthier by using a portion of low-fat milk in place of some of the heavy cream. The addition of fresh berries or fruit compote also provides a boost of antioxidants and fiber.



  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 (1/4 oz) envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 3 tbsp cold water
  • Fresh berries or fruit compote for serving



  1. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water. Let it stand for 5 minutes to soften.

  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the cream is hot but not boiling.

  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the softened gelatin until it completely dissolves.

  4. Pour the mixture into 4-6 individual serving dishes or ramekins.

  5. Refrigerate the panna cotta for at least 4 hours, or until set.

  6. When ready to serve, top the panna cotta with fresh berries or fruit compote of your choice.

Indulge in the velvety smooth texture and heavenly vanilla flavor of this panna cotta, and let each blissful spoonful transport you to a world where dessert dreams come true!
