Vanilla panna cotta with strawberry coulis

Here is a sunny treat for y’all today because french strawberries are back on the market stall and I couldn’t be happier. It just feels good to add a little bit of variety to my shopping list and some colors too!

Panna cotta takes literally 5 minutes to make, nothing easier. No need for fancy kitchen equipment. I stuck to basic flavors but I am going to try some fun ones in the next weeks, so stay tuned for that.

Vanilla panna cotta with strawberry coulis (4 servings) :

For the panna cotta :

  • 300ml milk
  • 200ml full fat heavy cream
  • 3 gelatin sheets (6g)
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean

Soak the gelatin sheet for 10 minutes in cold water.

Drain it and squeeze the excess liquid out with your hands.

Mix together milk, scraped vanilla bean, cream and sugar in a pot. Bring it a boil.

Turn the heat off once it boils and add the gelatin. Whisk energetically to dissolve the gelatin correctly.

Pour the milk mixture into small glasses and let it cool at room temperature.

Let it sit in the fridge to harden overnight (or at least 5 hours for a nice texture).

For the strawberry coulis :

  • 200g (fresh or frozen) strawberries
  • 50 to 80g sugar (to taste)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Put all of the ingredients in a sauce pan and heat it gently while stirring and mashing the strawberries with a spoon for 12-14 minutes.

Blend it in a blender or with an immersion blender.

Strain it through a fine sieve to get rid of all the strawberries’ seeds.

Let it cool and drizzle over the panna cotta!
