For the Panna Cotta:

  • 2 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 envelope gelatin
  • 2 ¼ cups Nancy's yogurt drained
  • 1 ¾ cups heavy whipping cream divided
  • ¾ cup sugar

For the Berry Coulis:

  • 1 cup berries mixed or individual
  • ¼ cup water
  • 6 tablespoon sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • additional berries for decorating
  • mint leaves for decorating


For the Panna Cotta:

  • Add the water to a small bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin on top and stir to combine. Let sit 10-15 minutes to dissolve.
  • Add 1 cup of heavy cream and the sugar to a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining ¾ cup of cream and the yogurt.
  • Add the gelatin to the cream and sugar mixture and whisk until it combines, then whisk that into the cream/yogurt mixture.
  • Pour into 8 2-cup ramekins, filling each about half way. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours but up to overnight.

For the Berry Coulis:

  • Combine berries, water, sugar and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat until just barely simmering.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
  • Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
  • Strain through a mesh sieve into a bowl. Stir in lemon juice and taste, adding additional sugar if needed.
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
  • Additional water (1-2 tsp) can be added to the mixture to thin it if it is too thick.

To Assemble:

  • Fill a bowl with steaming hot water and dunk just the bottom end of the panna cotta ramekins into it to loosen the panna cotta.
  • Use a knife to loosen around the edges and then invert over a plate.
  • Pour berry coulis on top and garnish with fresh berries and mint leaves.


NOTE: This recipe needs to be refrigerated at least 8 hours.
To drain the yogurt, place a mesh sieve over a bowl and add yogurt. Cover with plastic wrap and allow excess liquid to drain. May keep in fridge overnight to drain.
