Coconut Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta is a classic Italian dessert that is very easy to make and absolutely delicious. I woke up craving a coconut dessert, so I decided to make a coconut version of Panna Cotta, by adding some coconut milk and topping it with a home made rapsberry sauce. The best thing about this dessert is that you can make it one day ahead, so it is great for entertaining.



(6 servings)

  • Panna Cotta
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extact
  • Cooking spray
  • Rapsberry Sauce
  • 1 pin fresh rapsberries
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons water


To make the panna cotta:
Place the cream, coconut milk and sugar in a sauce pan. Stir often until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the coconut extract.

In a medium bowl place the gelatin and add the water. Stir well until combined.

Add the coconut milk mixture to the gelatin and stir well.

Using cooking spray, grease 6 ramekins & set aside.

Pour the panna cotta mixture into the ramekins. Place in the refigerator for at leats 4 hours or until ready.

To make the rapsberry sauce:
Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and cook for about 20 mintes, stirring occasionally.

    Panna cotta has been on my list of things to try for awhile now! I’ve had a hard time trying to find those gelatin sheets. Coconut with a raspberry sauce sounds amazing!

    Hola Erika,

    It’s like you read my mind.I have been thinking all morning of making a panna cotta, I even told my hubby to bring me some strawberries to do this. I am glad I came by to visit you today. Coconut milk seems interesting, I think I’ll do it your way.

    Have a great and blessed day,

    Oh! Erica… Are you sure you don’t want to move here to sunny California? They have an empty apartment just beside mine. It would be so awesome be your neighbor. This Panna Cotta looks delicious with raspberries. :-)

    This is so pretty! I made Almond Panna Cotta once. It was such a pain grinding up all the almonds. I would never try it again.

    This tasty looking coconut Panna Cotta on the other hand seems a lot simpler to make. I’ll definitely give this a try. :)
