Easy Coconut Panna Cotta (Dairy-free, Paleo)

There are plenty of chocolate recipes floating around for Valentine’s Day, so how about something for my non-chocolate lovers?

This coconut panna cotta is a quick dessert to throw together, but it’s sure to impress your loved ones. Featuring just four ingredients, it couldn’t be easier to prepare!

I had originally planned on using almond milk to make this dairy-free dessert, but the homemade almond milk I used ended up separating in the final result. The creamy layer tasted amazing, but the ugly darker layer that separated away tasted like… nothing. So, I don’t recommend using homemade almond milk for this recipe. Canned coconut milk, however, works perfectly!

Paired with grass-fed gelatin, which may promote digestion and skin health, you can feel good about serving this naturally sweetened treat to your sweetie.

serves 4

Adapted from Deliciously Organic

Ingredients:

1 (13.5 oz) can full-fat coconut milk (this brand is BPA-free)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 teaspoon grass-fed gelatin (I used this brand)

Directions:

In a small saucepan, whisk together 1 cup of the coconut milk with the powdered gelatin. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, to allow the gelatin to “bloom.” Add in the vanilla, then gently heat the mixture over medium-low heat, whisking well to help the gelatin dissolve. Be careful NOT to boil this mixture! Once the gelatin has completely dissolved, remove from the heat and stir in the maple syrup and remaining coconut milk.

Pour the mixture into 4 small dishes, and place in the fridge to set for at least 4 hours before serving.

For easy removal, place the chilled dishes in a shallow bowl of hot water for 1-2 minutes, then flip the dessert onto a plate. The panna cotta should slide right out! Serve immediately, with fresh berries, if desired.

As always, if you try making this recipe with any other milks or sweeteners, please share your results in the comments below! Agar agar may work as a vegan substitute for gelatin, but the ratio will need to be adjusted.

Reader Feedback: Have you ever made panna cotta before? Now that I know how easy it is, I’ll be making it much more often.
