Ingredients

  • 2 tsp 2 tsp (5 g) unflavored powdered gelatin
  • water
  • 2 cups 475 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp (4 g) erythritol (optional)
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp pomegranate, the seedspomegranates, the seeds
  • fresh mint (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Soak the gelatin (sheets) for 5-10 minutes in cold water. If you use powdered gelatin, mix it with cold water. Typically about 1 tablespoon water per teaspoon gelatin powder, but check the instructions for your specific brand. Set aside.
  2. Add cream, vanilla extract and erythritol to a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Lower the heat and let simmer for a couple of minutes on medium-low heat until the cream begins to thicken.
  3. Remove the cream from the heat and add the gelatin. If you're using sheets, be sure to squeeze as much water out of them as possible before adding to the cream. Stir until the gelatin has dissolved completely.
  4. Pour the cream into serving glasses. Allow to cool completely before covering with plastic wrap and placing in the fridge for two to three hours or overnight.
  5. Take the panna cotta out of the fridge half an hour before serving. Decorate with pomegranate seeds and fresh mint.

Tip!

Flavor options abound. Feel free to try saffron, liquorice powder, lemon/orange zest, cocoa, or coffee powder (diluted in some hot water). We recommend that you add some vanilla extract to the recipe even if you choose another main flavor. Vanilla enhances the natural sweetness of the cream and balances other flavors.

    I think the ingredients are wrong, similar panna cotta recipes have 3 teaspoons of gelatin while this has 2 tablespoons ! It came out like a tasteless chunk of rubber

    My version: 1&1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream, 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 teaspoon of gelatin (or agar for vegetarian option), and 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract + 1 packet of stevia sweetner (optional). Mixed everything and let it sit for a ~10 min. Then brought it to a boil, turned the heat to low and simmered for 4-5 more minutes. Removed from heat and put in your choice of containers, cool, and refrigerate. Can top with whatever you want (I used a blackberry, some almond slivers, and lightly dusted with cinnamon). I loved it.

    Just made this. I used monk fruit sweetener and since I didn't have pomegranate seeds, I plopped in a couple of large black raspberries. This was AMAZING. So delicious...

    Does anyone know if the carb found includes or excludes the pomegranites

    since they are not listed as an optional ingredient, the nutrition information does include the pomegranates.
