Panna Cotta With Blackberries

Panna cotta is a molded, chilled dessert of cream, sugar, and gelatin to set. With roots in Italy, it’s easy to make and should be prepared in advance. Our version incorporates coconut milk for a tropical twist. Try not to feel like you’re on an island vacation when you indulge in this decadent treat. Fresh fruits are a no-brainer when it comes to making mouthwatering desserts so why not add fresh blackberries when in season?
