Mango and Coconut Pannacotta


Panna cotta is an Italian dessert made from sweetened and thickened cream and other added flavorings. It is perfect to beat the summer heat. But then, any season or time is a good time to devourer this.  This simple yet elegant cream dessert tastes brilliant with any fruit compote.

I made these elegant individual portions of delicious Mango and Coconut Panna Cotta for my daughter’s birthday party. They were an instant hit, I can proudly say. The texture was perfect and the combination of mango with coconut worked brilliantly. It is a great make ahead dessert and definitely a crowd pleaser.  Indulge yourself πŸ™‚
