Panna cotta means ‘cooked cream’ in Italian, but Catherine Fulvio uses yogurt for a lighter, tangier flavour


1. For the panna cotta: put the cream and sugar in a saucepan over a medium heat. Using the point of a knife, scrape the vanilla seeds into the saucepan before adding the pod. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, then bring to scalding point. Remove from the heat and lift out the vanilla pod.

2. Soak the gelatine in a bowl of cold water until soft. Squeeze out the excess water then drop the gelatine into the hot cream and whisk immediately until dissolved. Add the yogurt and mix until smooth.

3. Strain the cream mixture through a fine sieve if necessary and divide between four 125ml serving dishes such as ramekins, cappuccino cups, martini glasses or white wine glasses. Ensure that you leave a little gap at the top of each dish. Cover with cling film and chill for at least three hours, until set.

4. For the coulis: heat the raspberries, sugar and 2 tablespoons of water in a small saucepan. Simmer for 2-3 minutes then remove from the heat. Lift out some raspberries and set aside to use as decoration.

5. Blend the remaining raspberries until smooth then pour the coulis through a sieve.

6. To serve, drizzle the coulis over the panna cotta and place the reserved raspberries on top.

Hi Fee, thanks for your comment. As 4 gelatine leaves are generally taken to convert to 0.25 oz powdered gelatine, we have converted this to 2.7g powdered gelatin for this recipe.

We have not tested this recipe with powdered gelatine, so we would recommend trying it out first.

I would like to know what amount of gelatine is being used in powder form?
Here in SA gelatine is not sold as in recipe.
