Coconut Chocolate Panna Cotta with Cherry Sauce

coconut chocolate panna cotta with cherry sauce

Panna cotta is one of the best desserts. It is so quick and easy to make, and it doesn’t require baking. Panna cotta actually means cooked cream in Italian. I used coconut milk instead of cream, and it’s amazing and yummy and great for vegans and paleo eaters. It is as good as the real panna cotta with cream. Coconut milk actually contains a lot of fat, so this dessert is not exactly a low calorie meal. But fat in coconut milk is actually a good fat, and you will feel full for quite some time after eating this. And it still has less calories than regular cream that is usually used for panna cotta. If you are not a vegan, and you consume regular milk, you may want to reduce the calories by using half regular milk and half coconut milk. I don’t use refined sugar at all. When I make a healthier version of desserts, I use honey, but I always reduce it to a minimum. So I used only 2 tablespoons of honey for a whole desert, which is 4 servings. I made mine with agar-agar, but if you are not a vegetarian, you can use gelatin instead. I also added chocolate and sour cherry sauce for better flavor.

And here is a pic tutorial.
