Panna Cotta

I LOVE panna cotta. I rarely see it on menus anymore, but it's one of my favorite classic desserts. It's super simple and SO versatile. I originally posted this recipe on Insta with strawberry ginger or stone fruit toppings, but you can add any fruit that is in season.

This is a great recipe to make for parties because you can store the base in a large container in the fridge for a few days, quickly reheat, portion, and let set in the fridge for a few hours. 

You can use the weights in this recipe and make the following substitutions. Experiment to see what you like!

- Milk (cow, goat, coconut, oat, etc)
- Cream (heavy cream, creme fraiche, buttermilk, Greek yogurt, coconut cream, etc)
- Sugar (maple, honey, date, coconut)
- Gelatin (I use Vital Proteins!)
- Infusions (citrus, herbs, tea... get creative!

You'll also see three no recipe recipes for the toppings. You have great taste! Cut some fruit, add the recommended other ingredients and adjust as you go. Baking can be veryyy sciencey but there are some areas that are similar to cooking where you can just FLOW. I’m hoping to share more of these types of recipes so it’s less intimidating.
