Blueberry Panna Cotta is one of the easiest desserts you can make.
In Italian panna cotta means “cooked cream”. There are many variations of the recipe, but it is basically made by simmering cream, milk and sugar, mixing in gelatin and then chilling the mixture until set.
In our version, almond milk is thickened with agar agar powder instead of gelatin. This is a form of odorless, tasteless, dehydrated red algae, which gives structure to the almond milk and the blueberry topping.
When using agar agar powder, a little goes a long way. Measure it carefully and use exactly the amount required.
Anna cotta is generally best when made and eaten on the same the day. You might prepare it in the morning, give it some time to set, and then eat it in the evening for dessert. However preparing your panna cotta a day in advance is also OK.
In this recipe we used almond milk, but feel free to experiment with other plant based milks, such as coconut, flax or hazelnut. So many possibilities to enjoy!
