You should all know by know how much I love a Panna Cotta.

It could be the fact that it is so easy to make. It could be the incredible silky texture. It could be the endless variations on flavour.

Who knows why? But this one is a must to add to your growing collection of low-carb panna cotta recipes.

To make your panna cotta you can use powdered gelatin. Two teaspoons will make soft and delicate panna cotta, while 3 teaspoons will make a creamier, thicker panna cotta. Or you can use 3-4 gelatin leaves like I did, enough to set 500 ml/ 17 fl oz of liquid. I used gelatin leaves because they give a wonderful smooth result but you can also use powdered gelatin.

You can use more sweetener if you want, but I find that this recipe lends itself to being only slightly sweetened. Alternatively, you can use a few drops of stevia.

This keto panna cotta is delicately infused with the delicious and pretty scent and flavour of bergamot thanks to the Earl Grey tea. This keto treat will make anyone sit back for a second and think “Whoa!” Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream or full-fat coconut milk (240 ml/ 8 fl oz)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, cashew milk or macadamia milk (240 ml/ 8 fl oz)
  • 1 tbsp Erythritol or Swerve (10 g/ 0.4 oz) - you can skip or use more to taste
  • 2-3 tsp gelatin powder or 2-3 gelatin leaves
  • 1/4 cup water (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 2 Earl Grey tea bags or 2 tbsp loose tea

Note: For a nut-free alternative, try poppy seed milk (here's a guide on how to make any nut and seed milk).

Instructions

  1. Place the cream, almond milk and sweetener in a saucepan and heat over medium heat.

  2. Place the tea bags in the cream mixture to steep while it heats up.
  3. Place your gelatin leaves in about 1 cup of cold water, or bloom your gelatin powder in 1/4 cup of cold water. Add the bloomed gelatin to the hot milk mixture and stir until completely dissolved.

  4. Take the pot off the heat and sit aside for the tea to infuse further for 10 minutes. Squeeze the tea bags out into the mixture and discard.
  5. Pour the mixture into serving dishes. I used one large shallow bowl, but individual pots or glasses would look pretty too.

  6. Place in refrigerator for approx. 2 hours, or until set. Low-Carb Earl Grey Panna Cotta
  7. Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
    Note: you can place cling wrap on the surface to avoid the wrinkled affect that you see in my photos, but I kind of like the texture and interest that it lends to the dish. You may not want that. I would suggest not using a big shallow bowl if you want to avoid the wrinkles on top, the smaller your surface area the least likely it is to wrinkle.

I made this and it was amazing I love Earl Grey Tea and this had just the right flavor not to sweet!

This is amazing, I’ve made it three times and I’m obsessed! What are some options for making the same panna cotta with different flavors? 😊

Reply

Absolutely! Here are some ideas:
Low-Carb Lavender Panna Cotta
Low-Carb Strawberry & Rhubarb Panna Cotta (this one is thicker so you may want to use less gelatine)
Keto Spiced Chocolate Panna Cotta with Strawberry Coulis
Or you could just add either some vanilla or orange zest, lemon zest, instant coffee, crushed berries (use less liquids), cinnamon or almond extract 😊

What's the purpose of the 60ml of water?

Reply

Hi Dani, the water is used to "bloom" the gelatin. You can use more if you are using gelatin leaves because it will only be used for soaking. If you use powdered gelatin, 1/4 cup is enough.

This looks so tasty! Do you think green tea flavored version would work?

You could try it but I think matcha powder may be even better 😊
