Vanilla Panna Cotta with Strawberry Sauce

Servings 2
Author Coco and Ash

Ingredients

The Panna Cotta

  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2.5 tsp unflavored gelatin
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 vanilla bean pod (seeds extracted) or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

The Strawberry Sauce

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries (sliced and divided)
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Instructions

The Panna Cotta

  • Place the milk in a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin evenly over the milk. Let soak for 5 minutes.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the cream, sugar, vanilla seeds, the seeded vanilla bean pod, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a low boil. Let simmer for 5 minutes
  • After the 5 minutes, remove the pan from heat and whisk in the milk/gelatin mixture until smooth.
  • Strain the liquid through a mesh strainer. (You don't need a super fine strainer as you are not trying to strain out the vanilla beans. You're just trying to strain out any undissolved pieces of gelatin.)
  • Pour into your individual glasses, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

The Strawberry Sauce

  • Add 1/2 of the sliced strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, and water to a small saucepan and bring to a slow boil. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the remaining strawberries
  • Let cool completely then spoon over the chilled panna cotta. Refrigerate again until ready to serve.
