Panna cotta is Italian for “cooked cream.” The simple dessert is cooked on the stovetop and thickened with just a small amount of gelatin. Topped with vanilla scented berries, it is a sure-fire hit!


Panna Cotta

3/4 cup milk (2% or whole)
1 1/4 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder
5 packets Truvia
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk, at room temperature


Berry Medley

3 packets Truvia
1/4 of a vanilla bean
1 1/2 cups mixed berries, such as raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries, large berries quartered


Pour the milk into a small saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin evenly over the top
Whisk to combine, then set aside for 3 minutes to soften the gelatin
Whisk in the Truvia
Place the saucepan over medium heat and whisk frequently until the milk begins to steam and the gelatin dissolves completely
Do not allow the mixture to fully boil
Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool for 15 minutes
Whisk in the buttermilk
Pour the mixture into four 4-ounce ramekins
Cover with plastic film and refrigerate about 3 hours, or overnight, until it is set


Just before serving, put the sugar into a bowl large enough to hold the berries
Use a paring knife to slit the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape the seeds into the Truvia
Rub the seeds into the sugar with your fingertips
Add the berries and gently mix with a spoon or your hands for about 1 minute, until the berries are well coated and begin to release their juices
Distribute the berries and their juices evenly over the tops of the panna cottas and serve
