This Yuzu Panna Cotta is a traditional Italian recipe with a Japanese twist. Sweet and citrusy and so delicious!
I love yuzu. It is an Asian citrus fruit with an intense aroma and flavour. I ate it in Japan where it is widely used, especially in winter. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find the fruit here, but the flavour/essence is available online and it works pretty well to make desserts like this panna cotta.
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.
A quick note for my fellow Low Fodmappers… this panna cotta can be easily adjusted for our diet. Simply use lactose-free milk and lactose-free cream and you will be able to enjoy it without any problem!
