Panna cotta, a popular Italian dessert, means "cooked cream." While heavy cream is typically used, we've used a combo of silky lite coconut milk and soy milk instead. The result is a cool, sweet, and extremely luscious dessert.


  • 1 envelope(s) gelatin, unflavored
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) coconut milk, unsweetened
  • 1 cup(s) soy milk, low-sugar, low-fat
  • 1/3 cup(s) sugar substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1

    MAKE AHEAD: You can make the panna cotta several days ahead, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to serve. This recipe can easily be doubled.

  • 2

    In a glass measuring cup, sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup cold water. Let stand for 5 minutes, or until softened. Place the measuring cup in a pan of simmering water and heat until the gelatin has dissolved, about 2 minutes.

  • 3

    In a large bowl, stir together the coconut milk, soy milk, sugar substitute, cinnamon, vanilla, and dissolved gelatin.

  • 4

    Pour into four 8-ounce custard cups and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or until set. When ready to serve, run a butter knife or small spatula around the edge of each dessert and invert onto a serving plate.
