|I’m away at a convention (Read: Summer Camp for Nerds), so let’s go with a quick and easy recipe, both to post, and to make : a Panna cotta! I love panna cottas – thick and creamy, so incredibly satisfying – and they’re inherently gluten free! Score! This one – a Mango Daiquiri Panna Cotta – is a variation of the boozy panna cotta recipes in my first cookbook, The Spirited Baker.
Mango Daiquiri Panna Cotta
1 1/2 tsp Unflavored gelatin powder
Sprinkle the gelatin over the rum in a small bowl and let absorb for five minutes.
Combine coconut milk, puree, and sugar in a saucepan. Heat to just to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Do not let it come to boil! Meanwhile, microwave the gelatin for about 15 seconds, or until it’s melted.
Once the milk mixture has come to a simmer, remove it from the heat. Whisk in the gelatin until fully incorporated, and the mixture is smooth. Add sour cream, whisking once again till fully incorporated and smooth. Pour into four greased ramekins or custard cups. Chill for at least 2 hours until set.
