Yogurt panna cotta (no cream in this recipe!!)

The other day I decided to make panna cotta but I wanted to make it without using any cream (which is king of , given that the name means cooked cream). Anyway I decided to go with yogurt and after a search on line I saw it was doable, you just have to use greek yogurt and milk.

Now I don’t think this makes it a no calorie dessert, but for sure is better than using cream and in any case it does taste super light and summery!

Today I am going to San Francisco for the weekend. Will be back home by Monday….

Yogurt panna cotta (no cream in this recipe!!)


  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 packet gelatin
  • 2-4 tbs sugar
  • vanilla extract


  1. First soak the gelatin in cold water. In the mean time warm your milk. When the milk is starting boiling add the sugar, the vanilla extract and the gelatin and mix well.
  2. Add the yogurt to the milk and again mix well to combine.
  3. Using a strainer, pour the mixture in 4 small bowls or cups or 3 larger ones. The strainer will allow you to get rid of any undissolved gelatin lump.
  4. Place in the fridge and let solidify for a couple of hours. Decorate using your favorite fruit, jam, jelly, preserve or sauce and serve.
