Panna cotta is a light and creamy dessert that is perfect for any time of the year. However it’s typically made with cream and refined sugar, with even dairy free versions being made with coconut which doesn’t agree with me. So I set about making my own healthy panna cotta that was free from coconut, refined sugar and allergy friendly so it can be enjoyed by everyone.
Health benefits of turmeric
Turmeric has numerous health benefits. It contains curcurmin, which reduces inflammation and has strong anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties (1). I love incorporating it everyday in different ways, from turmeric lattes, pasta sauces, curries and sprinkled on salads. So I decided to combine my love of panna cotta with my love of turmeric and set about making a turmeric golden milk panna cotta.
Healthy panna cotta Ingredients
Ceylon cinnamon powder (UK Link/US Link). Balances blood sugar levels and has powerful anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties (2). Ceylon cinnamon is higher quality than regular cassia (3).
Tiger nut milk. Contrary to what the name suggests, tiger nuts are a root vegetable not a nut. Tiger nut milk is an allergy free plant based milk alternative. It is used instead of cream or coconut for the base of the panna cotta.
