I've been guest posting for Carol from Ditch The Wheat! I have always admired Carol's blog for being one of the best sources of healthy low-carb, paleo-friendly recipes.

Her recipe photos are breathtaking and her posts offer useful tips on gluten-free baking. Carol has authored an excellent cookbook for some of the best grain-free recipes and has been working on yet another one.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

Chocolate panna cotta:
  • 2 cups full-fat coconut milk or heavy whipping cream (240 ml/ 8 fl oz)
  • 1/2 bar dark chocolate, 85%-90 cocoa solids (50 g/ 1.8 oz)
  • 1/4 cup cold water (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 2 tsp gelatin powder (5 g/ 0.2 oz)
  • 10-15 drops stevia
  • 1/2 tsp dried anise seeds
  • 4 whole cardamom pods
  • Optional: 1 tsp virgin coconut oil (not needed if you use silicon molds)
Strawberry Coulis:
  • 1/2 cup strawberries (70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 5-10 drops stevia
  • 2 tbsp water


  1. Pour the coconut milk in a pot and add anise seeds and cardamom pods. Bring to simmer over medium heat and cook for just about a minute. Keep an eye on it to prevent the milk from boiling over. When done, take off the heat and leave to rest for 10-15 minutes.

  2. Using a sieve, pour the milk into another pan and discard the spices.

  3. Add dark chocolate broken into pieces and slowly heat up while stirring until the chocolate dissolves. Then, take off the heat and add stevia.

  4. Meanwhile, pour the cold water in another pan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the surface of the water and mix in well. Let it stand for 10-15 minutes.

  5. Add the warm chocolate mixture and keep stirring until dissolved. Make sure there are no granules before pouring it into the ramekins.

  6. Lightly grease 4 ramekins with coconut oil and place them on a tray. (Or use a silicon muffin tray, no greasing needed.) Pour the chocolate mixture in and place in the fridge until set (3 hours or overnight).

  7. When the panna cotta is set, prepare the strawberry coulis. Blend half of the strawberries in a food processor together with 2 tbsp water and stevia.

  8. Run a knife around the edge of the panna cotta and unmold each one onto a plate and circle with the coulis. Use the remaining strawberries for garnish and enjoy. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Ditch th e Wheat site is “out for a bit.”  Can you tell me how to get to your spiced chocolate panna cotta recipe?
Love your recipes and cook at least 3-4 a week.  Snow day today, so I’ve made KetoDiet granola, seeded crackers, graham crackers, and now want to make chocolate panna cotta (after earl gray one earlier this week turned out so well!).
KetoDiet Stromboli for dinner tonight!
Thanks so much, Martina

Hi Jane, I'm so sorry for the delayed response! I just checked and the website seems to be live/running so all should be fine now 😊 Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, I really appreciate that!

Love this! Thanks for making it dairy-free! 😊

Thanks Gail! I Not all my recipes are dairy-free but I always try to give at least dairy free options 😊

Yum! I love the recipe for hot chocolate in your book but never thought of making panna cotta with these ingredients. Can't wait to try it! Oh how much agar powder (vegetarian) would I have to use instead of the gelatin?

Thank you Ella! 1 teaspoon agar powder should be equivalent to 8 teaspoon gelatine powder, so you can use a lot less to get the same result. If you use agar flakes, use 1 tbsp per cup of liquid. If you use agar powder, use 1 tsp per cup of liquid. Make sure you dissolve it in water before adding it to the coconut milk.
