Raspberry Panna Cotta

This refreshing dessert is so yummy, yet so simple to make.  I have experimented with all milk (no cream) panna cotta - the taste is very light.  Unless you are on a diet, I do not suggest using all milk as it takes away the pleasure of having panna cotta.  I have not tried using all cream yet as the idea of having 40% fat in the cup is very guilty.  And so, my lower-fat version of panna cotta:

Raspberry Panna Cotta
(makes 6 cups)

350ml full cream milk
150ml whipping cream (or heavy cream)
50g fine sugar
1/2 vanilla essence
3 level tsp gelatin powder (dissolved in 2 tbsp warm water)
2 tbsp Tortally jelly crystals (raspberry flavour)
100ml water
A cup of fresh or frozen raspberry

1) Gently boil the milk, dairy cream and sugar in a pot till sugar is melted and small bubbles started to form at the side of pot.
2) Pour the gelatin mixture and vanilla essence into the pot and stir.
3) Let it cool and pour into small cups and place in refrigerator till set.
4) Dissolve the jelly crystals in 100ml water (over stove or heat on high in microwave for one minute).
5) Cool the jelly mixture.  Place a few raspberries in each cup and gently pour some jelly mixture over it.
6) Chill and serve.


  1. Hi there!
    I love reading your recipe blog!! May i check with u, for the panna cotta which u did, which brand of dairy cream did u use? And is dairy cream here referring to pure cream? Sorrie if i sound like a noob.. im a newbie wif desserts!!
    Looking forward to your reply!


  2. Hi Feli, you can use any brand of cream. I do not have preference over brand, though i wish we could have Japanese brand of cream products in the super mart. Oh yes, the various types of cream do sound confusing for me too. There are single cream, double cream, whipping cream, pure cream etc... For this dessert, yes, you can use pure cream. In any case, I have thinned it down with the addition of milk.
