Easy Raspberry Panna Cotta Recipe

-- Advertisements --
I like Panna cotta for a few reasons, so this raspberry panna cotta recipe fits the bill! I like when my dinner guests say “This is delicious, what is it called?”, to me this means that the Panna Cotta is not a dessert that is over served.
This dessert originates from Italy, and is literally translated to mean cooked cream, however the taste is a lot more refined that plain cooked cream, so join me in creating this interesting dish so we can wow your guests!


  • 500 ml cream
  • 1 pod of vanilla, or use 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of unflavored gelatine (Dr. Oetker and knox are two of the brands I know of)
  • 1/2 cup of full cream milk
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of full cream Greek yogurt
  • Raspberry for the garnish.


  1. Place the 500 ml cream in a saucepan over medium to low heat.
  2. Place the vanilla in the saucepan
    • If using the pod, cut pod along length and scrape out seeds with back of knife. Put seeds in the cream. You can get rid of the pod, its not needed.
    • If using the essence, just add to the cream.
  3. Add the sugar, and bring the mixture to a simmer while continuously stirring.
  4. Pour the full cream milk into a separate bowl.
  5. Sprinkle the gelatine over the milk, and let the mixture stand for 5 minutes (no need to stir).  The gelatine will now soften.
  6. Stir this mixture (gelatine and milk) into the hot cream mixture, and mix until combined/dissolved.
  7. Stir in the yogurt.
  8. Pour the completed mixture into your dishes (ramekins).  It should serve about 8.
  9. Cover each dish with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until set (about 6 hours, but you can test at the 4 hour mark)
  10. You can serve in the ramekins or if you want to serve on another dish, then put each ramekin in warm water (3/4 up the dish).  This will loosen/melt part of the dessert so that it slide out easily.
  11. Mash half of the raspberry so that it creates liquid raspberry juice.
  12. Put some whole raspberry’s over the panna cotta, and drizzle some of the raspberry liquid over the top.
  13. Now serve and wow everyone at the table!
