FMTV - Coconut & Coffee Panna Cotta

Coconut & Coffee Panna Cotta

Series: Keeping it Real with Chef Shine | Episode: 1 | Runtime: 05m 21s | Release date: 2019

Who needs gelatin when you have agar! Created from specific types of red algae, agar is a wonderful, safe, and flavorless vegan/vegetarian alternative to gelatin. Agar exists in powder, flakes, and sheet form, however, this recipe calls for the powdered variety, given it is much easier to dissolve in liquid compared to its other forms.

One very important thing to note when using agar: it cannot be substituted for the same amount of gelatin – less is more given its strong gelling powers, so be sure to stick to the recipe unless you want a stiffer, more jelly-like panna cotta which also tastes great!

wow, this sounds amazing and so easy, I will add agar to my shopping list this week. I do have a question, I don't drink coffee so what else do you recommend to use for a great flavor. ?

Wow! I am so surprised at how easy this delicious sounding recipe is to make (easy is good in my world!). Must remember to add agar to my next grocery shopping list and give it a try - I love the idea of using plant-based products. Thank you so much Chef Shine :)
