Panna cotta with coconut milk and grapefruit syrup


For the panna cotta

  • Place the gelatin sheets in a bowl full of cold water. Allow them to soak until they soften.
  • In a pot, add the coconut milk and sugar.
  • Split the vanilla pod with a knife. Remove the seeds and add them to the pot along with the pod.
  • Place pot over medium heat for 4-5 minutes. As soon as the milk starts to boil, remove pot from heat.
  • Wring the gelatin sheets with your hands and add them to the pot. Whisk until they dissolve in the hot mixture.
  • Remove the vanilla pod.
  • Divide the mixture into panna cotta molds.
  • Refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours, until they chill and thicken.

For the grapefruit syrup

  • Place a saucepan over medium heat. Add the grapefruit juice and sugar.
  • Bring mixture to a boil and cook for 10-12 minutes, until you create a thick syrup. Be careful! When you remove the syrup from heat, it may seem like it needs more time to thicken but when it cools completely, it will be as thick as it should be.

To serve

  • You can unmold the panna cotta in 4 different ways. By dipping the mold in boiling water, by heating with a kitchen torch all around the mold, by placing it over heat for a few seconds and last, by using your hands to press the panna cotta along the circumference of the mold.
  • Serve with grapefruit syrup, grapefruit segments and mint leaves.
