Creamy, velvety, melt in your mouth panna cotta with berry coulis for a delicious, dairy free and healthier dessert to nourish. 

Make It Better 

Typically made with heavy, thickened and sweetened cream I’ve made this a healthier, lighter and better for you alternative using plant based Almond Breeze almond milk for a light and soft texture with no hidden sugar.

This recipe is so simple to make for a healthy dessert for the family and they present beautifully when entertaining friends.

Panna Cotta with Berry Coulis Dairy Free

Ingredients Used

To make this recipe gluten free and dairy free this healthier panna cotta with berry coulis uses some of our favourite ingredients for nourishing cooking: 

Plant based almond milk and yoghurt for a healthier, lighter alternative to traditional cream used in panna cotta. I used Almond Breeze Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk for a delicious, vanilla milk that is also dairy free and contains no hidden sugars. 

Pure maple syrup to naturally sweeten. You can also use any natural sweetener of choice such as honey, rice malt syrup or liquid stevia/monk fruit drops.

Gelatin powder to set the dessert with bonus nourishing properties. 

Fresh berries to make the coulis for a sugar free topping.
