Grab two ingredients and create a versatile, simple dessert that can be flavored further with any toppings you choose.

If you google “panna cotta”… you’ll quickly find everyone calling it “the perfect dessert” lately. Let’s talk about some reasons why… shall we? It’s easy, it’s adorable, and it’s delicious.
Turns out you only need two ingredients to create this magic: coconut milk + agar agar and BAM, you have yourself a dessert. Agar agar behaves like gelatin, but is plant-derived, so it’s totally vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, etc. It’s odorless and tasteless, so it’s super flexible! You can find it in the Asian food aisle of your grocery store.
To the mixture, you can add sugar, vanilla and flavored extracts even, but I wanted to try it out in it’s simplest form first with some toppings. But I can certainly see plenty of possibilities with this… It’s a must try. Not only will you impress your guests, but quite frankly, yourself too.
Note, if you choose to top the dessert with honey it may no longer be vegan.Print
