Vanilla Yogurt Panna Cotta


I've made lots of panna cotta, but this is the first time I try Kristina's recipe for a lighter touch. It uses yogurt instead of just cream, and there's some milk in there too. It's not as dense as regular panna cotta, but it's still creamy and delicious. And practically guilt-free! This recipe makes a lot - at least 8 servings, or many tiny ones if you use miniature cups.

For a topping, I used blackberries that had been left to steep in some simple vanilla-flavored sugar syrup and some lemon zest.

Vanilla Yogurt Panna Cotta

150 ml milk
200 ml cream (35-40% fat)
100 ml sugar (about 100 g)
1 vanilla bean, or 2 tbsp vanilla sugar
3 gelatin leaves
500 ml vanilla yogurt


Soak the gelatin in cold water for five minutes. Heat cream and milk in a saucepan with the sugar and vanilla bean, or vanilla sugar. Bring to a boil, and then let it cool for a little while. Scrape out the vanilla bean if using, and stir in the gelatin. Stir in the yogurt, and pour into glasses or cups. Leave in the fridge until completely set - count on at least 4 hours.

It looks so delish. I'll give it a try this week-end, I'll get my kids envolved in making it.
I love your blog. I was wondering if you could send me by e-mail the rhubarb tart picture, I want to make sure I understand it correctly. Thanks a bunch!

Anne, where did you get these vibrant glasses? Your pictures show that food presentation only needs a few carefully chosen details to make them delightful.

These look really good. A perfect summer dessert I would say. Your pictures are lovely too.

Kim, they're actually candle holders from Ikea :) I had filled my eight small cups that I generally use, and had *tons* more panna cotta to put somewhere. So I thought of these and it worked out great! They're tiny though, so it's just a few spoonfuls in each. It worked really well as part of a dessert buffet of sorts.

I have to try that! It sounds delicious.

your candle holders make perfect little ramekins. They look so happy and festive. I've never tried panna cotta with yoghurt. Another one to add to my list Anne
