This super silky vegan Raspberry Coconut Panna Cotta is perfect for Valentine’s Day! You can prepare it the day ahead, that way you’ll have hardly any work on the big day. I’ve topped the dairy-free Panna Cotta with a warm raspberry sauce which is so simple to make but such an awesome addition, you really shouldn’t miss out on that one. Altogether, the dessert is not much work really.

To remove the harder bits of the raspberries I’ve poured the panna cotta mixture through a nut milk bag. Panna cotta that just melts in your mouth…anyone? :) The Panna Cotta is not only dairy-free but also gluten-free and only needs 4 ingredients (including the raspberry sauce!).

Ingredients for the raspberry sauce

  • 1 cup defrosted raspberries
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar

  • Let them sit in the fridge overnight.
  • For the raspberry sauce simply simmer the defrosted raspberries together with the sugar in a small pot and mash the raspberries a bit.
  • To serve, go around the edges of the panna cotta with a knife until you can take it out of the form. Top with the warm raspberry sauce.

Can I use xanthan gum instead of agar for this? Or is there any other substitute for agar powder? Really hard to find at my grocery stores!

Hi. Is it still the same way you make it wen heating the mixture if so that whould be great. I think I'll be making it today with cherrys.


Wednesday 28th of March 2018

Cherries sounds lovely for the panna cotta! :) Not sure, I understand the question fully.. but the basic process is: blend fruits with coconut milk, strain or pour through a nutmilk bag to remove harder parts, pour it into a pot, heat, whisk in the agar and sugar, bring it to a boil, then divide the mixture into the jars/glasses and let them sit in the fridge overnight to thicken. Hope it helps!

Hi I need help. can you use agar flakes instead of agar powder


Tuesday 27th of March 2018

You can! But agar powder is more powerful than agar flakes, so you'll want to use 3 times the amount when using agar flakes. In this recipe = 2 1/4 teaspoons.

Thank you so much! This is such a great recipe. So fast and simple, and it turns out perfectly every time! So far I’ve made it with raspberries, blackberries, cherries and strawberries. Every time I bring it to a potluck, folks are elated that it’s vegan and gluten free, and people RAVE about how divine it is while I chuckle to myself about how fast and easy it was to make. Very grateful!
