Mango Panna Cotta

by Erica Dinho on May 8, 2011

Happy Mother’s day to all My Colombian Recipes readers!

Panna Cotta is a classic Italian dessert and it is fantastic for entertaining, as it is very easy to make and it can be made in advance. This versatile dessert is delicious!

I made a version drizzled with a mango sauce a couple of weeks ago and it was really good. We all loved it!

Buen provecho!



    Panna Cotta

  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup mango pulp
  • 1 tablespoon unflavored powdered gelatin
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Mango Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mango pulp
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


  1. To make the Panna Cotta:
  2. lace the milk, gelatin and mango puree in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour milk mixture into a small pan and stir over medium heat, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the cream, sugar, and salt. Stir until the sugar dissolves, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  5. Pour into 6 glasses or ramekins so that they are about 1/2 full.
  6. Refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours. Spoon the mango sauce on top and serve.
  7. To make the mango sauce:
  8. lace all the ingredients in a small sauce pan and cook stirring often for about 10 minutes or until a syrup consistency.

Hi Erica:

This is my husband’s favorite dessert and I have never made it. So he buys buys his, to my shame, at Trader Joe’s. I like your tropical spin.

Hope you had a wonderful mother’s day and pretty soon I will be out there again. I went with Wordpress Will let you know.

Hope you had a great Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to you too! I love that this panna cotta has mango in both the panna cotta itself and in the sauce. It looks bright and fresh and also nice and light. Perfect for Mother’s Day, or any day :)

A delicious dessert! My neighbor’s friend had a party at her house and made it under the Columbian flag (she is American); guess where she got all her recipes from?
Your site of course!

Mango is good for the health. It is good to have mango on a meal especially during lunch. I am also making a dessert through mangoes. I am glad I find something informative here in your post.
