Today I will share with you my recipe for Matcha Panna Cotta, a traditional Italian recipe with a Japanese twist. So silky and so delicious!
I love matcha. I could eat matcha anything, really! The slightly bitter taste goes so well with anything sweet! I had the best Matcha ice cream in Uji, near Kyoto, a little town famous for its green tea plantations. We were supposed to go back and explore the plantations last April, but we had to cancel our trip… So sad! Hopefully, we will be able to visit the area again as soon as oversea travel will be allowed again.
Anyhow, if you want to make your own Matcha ice cream, check out my recipe here!
Panna Cotta is always at the top of my favourite dessert list! It’s easy to make and it tastes delicious! It’s my all-time go-to dessert for when I have guests over! And it can be made the day before as well, so you don’t need to worry about it on the day your guests are coming. It can also be made lactose-free by simply using lactose-free cream and milk. Easy, right?
You can serve this Matcha Panna Cotta with some whipped cream and black sesame seeds or with some whipped cream and a little bit of my Miso Caramel Sauce. Sooooo good!
