Panna Cotta with Mixed Berries


I had gone for a run a couple months ago at Cottesloe Beach, after my run I decided to have breakfast at Il Lido Italian canteen and they had panna cotta with berries on the breakfast menu.  I decided to make my own version.  This recipe does not use whip cream or sugar and it is as delicious and wobbly as the original panna cotta.


For the Panna Cotta

270g milk of your choice

½ tsp.  cardamom

1 tbsp. maple syrup

1 tsp. gelatine powder


For Mixed Berry Compote

120g frozen  mixed berry

1 tbsp maple syrup


For Fruit Base

1 cup chopped berries

Handful of nuts



For the Panna Cotta

Add the milk in a saucepan with the cardamom, bring to boil.  Once it is boiled let it cool.

Once the milk has cooled, (it should be cold.) add the gelatine and maple syrup and put it back on the heat.  Sir for 3-4 minutes or until the gelatine has dissolved.  Do not boil it, otherwise the gelatine won’t work.

Add the milk in a glass bowl or ramekin, let it cool and put it in the fridge to set overnight.

For the compote

Add the maple syrup and frozen berries in a pan on a medium heat and bring to boil.

The Final Presentation 

Add the compote, Panna Cotta, nuts and chopped  berries and enjoy.
