Mango & Vanilla Panna Cotta

EVENT: SUNDAY FUNDAY

THEME: FRUITY DESSERTS

RECIPE: MANGO & VANILLA PANNA COTTA

Mango & Vanilla Panna Cotta is molded chilled Italian dessert with layers of vanilla and mango. Smooth, velvety and so delectable. A melt in mouth kind of dessert, panna cotta is my favorite.What I love about making panna cotta is that is it so easy to make this luscious, mouthwatering dessert. It can be served with sauces, coulis, jam, jelly, etc.

Panna Cotta is so easy to make. Some heat the milk and cream together. Some heat milk and add to the cream. A setting agent like gelatin, agar agar, or vegetarian gelatin is added to allow the panna cotta to set. It should not be firm but more like a jelly consistency. Wobbly but set enough to dig in with a spoon.

Theme:

This week’s theme suggested by Sneha who blogs at Sneha’s Recipes. I couldn’t miss the opportunity to participate in this theme as fruity desserts are my favorite.Come to think of it somehow or the other fruit tends to find its way into the desserts I prepare. With mango season, it seemed the right time to share a mango & vanilla panna cotta.

Here is What Fellow Members of Sunday Funday made for the theme:

 

Ingredients Required To Make Mango & Vanilla Panna Cotta:

  • Milk – full fat milk or 2% fat milk, for the vanilla layer.
  • Whipping/ Heavy Cream – depending on what you get. For the Vanilla Layer. I didn’t add any for the mango layer as mango on its own provides the thick and creamy texture.
  • Vanilla Extract – for the vanilla layer.
  • Fresh Mango Puree -chop mangoes and puree in a blender. Can also use tinned mango puree.
  • Sugar – required for both the vanilla and mango layer. The amount for the mango layer will depend on how sweet the mangoes are.
  • Gelatin –  remember 1 packet is 7g or ¼oz or 2½ tsp.
  • Water or  Mango Juice – for the mango layer, need it to bloom the gelatin.
  • Cinnamon or Ginger Powder – for flavoring the mango layer. It is optional. I used ginger powder. Can also add vanilla extract.
  • Topping: chopped fresh mango, any other fruit or nuts.

Notes

  • Use a fruit of your choice instead of mango.
  • Make vanilla panna cotta and serve it with a fruit sauce.
  • Adding spices is optional.
  • To make the layers more fancy, put the glasses slanting in a muffin tray. Pour the layer till it just about reaches the edge of the glass. Let it set. Stand the glasses vertically and pour the second layer. Put the glasses in the fridge to set.

    That is one elegant dessert and such a wonderful combination of flavors. Must try during the mango season. I love desserts like this to make as a single serve for parties. I will try this with agar agar.

      Thank you so much Sandhya, I too prefer single serving desserts. You can use agar agar and it comes out well. I usually add half or 1 tsp more agar agar powder.
