Yes, I love panna cotta and today’s Coffee Panna Cotta is no exception.
Actually, I could go as far as to say that this is one of my all-time favourite panna cotta flavours! After all, I love coffee! Probably more than I love chocolate, and that’s A LOT! I can’t believe I hadn’t posted this yet!
I know many people are afraid of making panna cotta because they are afraid it may fail. However, it’s really easy to make. If you are not sure you will be able to unmould it, serve it in little glasses. You will become a pro in no time and will be able to unmould it soon enough!
To make this low Fodmap and lactose-free, I simply used lactose-free cream and milk – easy, right? That’s another reason why I love panna cotta, it is so easy to adapt and personalise.
Also, because of the cream, the coffee flavour is not overly strong. So, even people who are not huge fans of coffee will be able to enjoy this dessert. However, try and use espresso for this recipe, so you get the most out of your coffee flavour.
This Coffe Panna Cotta definitely makes for the perfect end of meal treat! I know my family loves it.
