Berry Panna Cotta Ingredients
This keto panna cotta with berry sauce is made with six simple ingredients that you probably already have at home! You'll need the following:
- Milk - Use any keto-friendly unsweetened milk. We used coconut milk, but almond milk, cashew milk, macadamia nut milk, soy milk, and other nut kinds of milk will all work. You can also use half and half.
- Gelatin - Unflavored gelatin powder or sheets to thicken the panna cotta.
- Sugar-free sweetener - Use your favorite keto-friendly sweetener. We used powdered Erythritol, but monk fruit, stevia, etc., will work fine.
- Butter - Makes the panna cotta extra smooth, creamy, and silky.
- Lemon zest - Adds a fresh citrusy flavor to the panna cotta.
- Vanilla extract - Use a pure vanilla extract. It enhances the flavors and adds a subtle sweetness.
- Fresh berries - Use any of your favorite keto-friendly berries. I used blueberries, but raspberries and cranberries are delicious as well.
How To Make Keto Panna Cotta with Berry Sauce
- Heat the gelatin and milk. Heat half of the coconut milk and gelatin in a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Whisk until the gelatin has dissolved, and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Add the butter and stir.
- Remove from the heat. Turn off the heat and add the remaining coconut milk, Erythritol powder, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined.
- Transfer to ramekins and set. Pour the mixture into four ramekins and place them in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours until the panna cotta has set.
- Prepare the berry sauce. Heat the berries in a saucepan until warm. Optionally, add extra sugar-free sweetener and mix until a smooth sauce forms.
- Serve the berry panna cotta. Tip the ramekins upside down to remove the panna cotta and top with a sprinkle of lemon zest and the fresh berry sauce. Top it with a drizzle of my keto maple syrup to make it even more elegant!
To store leftover keto berry panna cotta, place it in an airtight container or cover tightly with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to 4 days but is best consumed within 1 to 2 days for the best taste and texture.
