Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp ½ tbsp (3.5 g) unflavored powdered gelatin
  • water
  • 2 cups 475 ml heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch saffron
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp honey (optional)
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp chopped almonds (optional)
  • 12 12 physalis or fresh raspberries (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix gelatin with a small amount of water (follow instructions for your chosen brand, usually 1 tablespoon water for every 1 tsp gelatin) and set aside to bloom.
  2. Bring cream, vanilla, saffron and optional honey to a light boil in a sauce pan. Lower the heat and allow to simmer for a few minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the stove top and add the gelatin. Stir until completely dissolved.
  4. Pour the mix into 6 glasses or ramekins. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Toast the almonds in a dry, hot frying pan for a few minutes and add on top of the pannacotta with physalis or other berries and serve.

Tip!

You can vary the flavoring of this pannacotta in a number of ways. Try adding more vanilla for a plain but intense vanilla flavor. You can also use licorice powder, lemon or orange zest, cocoa powder or coffee granules dissolved in a few drops of hot water. Always add a pinch of vanilla when experimenting with other flavors, it enhances the natural sweetness of the cream. Also, a touch of sea salt would be amazing with this dessert!

    So this recipe is 2g per serving, however what is the grams per serving if you miss out the honey nuts and raspberries (or a mixture)? I think these need grams besides these items in the recipe so we can minus them off if needed.
    thanks

    The honey is optional and not included in the carb count. For keto, it would not be a good addition.

    I tried it with the honey and it was delicious. I assumed 1 tbsp of honey still kept the carb count low per serving?

    1T honey has 17g carbs, so it adds 6g to each serving.

    They are about the same carb wise. A teaspoon of each is about half a carb.
