Vanilla-Mango Panna Cotta : TWD

Over at Tuesdays With Dorie (TWD), our assignment for this week is Vanilla-Mango Panna Cotta, a refreshing and cooling dessert, and in our hot humid weather, this dessert is most welcome anytime of the day! We are baking from Dorie's latest cookbook, "Baking Chez Moi". Though for this week, there's no need to turn on the oven! 



An easy dessert to make, the bottom is a layer of delightful mango puree, where fresh mangoes are pureed in the food processor, with some honey (I've used about 1 tablespoon honey, or may use sugar if preferred) to taste, with some lime juice. Just like Dorie, I like mine a little tart, so I've used the juice of two limes. Divide the puree among glasses or bowls, and keep them in the freezer for about 30 minutes, just so until they are firm, as you would want the puree to stay in place when the hot panna cotta mixture is poured over.

The panna cotta layer is made by mixing cream, sugar, milk and the seeds of a vanilla bean along with the bean, in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let steep for 20 minutes, while you prepare the gelatin by liquefy it in the microwave with some water. Return the mixture to a boil remove the bean, and pour over the gelatin, stir until the gelatin has completely dissolve. Let mixture cool slightly, about 20 minutes, then divide the mixture between the glasses with the mango puree. Refrigerate at least two hours until chilled before serving.


I've used Calamansi Limes from the garden pot. They were very juicy!



I chilled the panna cotta for about 6 hours. I like how the panna cotta layer is scattered with the vanilla seeds. It has set rather nicely, and everyone is just so impatient to dig in!


This is very yummy. The slightly tart mango puree with the creamy smooth panna cotta are so good together. A perfect cold dessert to enjoy with the family. I would love to try this with our other local fruits; like pineapple, dragon fruits, melons! Yums!

  2. Your panna cotta looks very pretty. I think red dragon fruit would be very dramatic with the white panna cotta.

  3. Oooo... Pineapple. Now that's an idea. See the boyfriend is allergic to Mangos (luckly he was away this weekend so I could try this), but Pineapple would be a really fun substitution since he's a huge fan of the show Psych. Thanks for the idea!!
