Panna cotta
1 tsp powdered gelatin
20ml water
40ml oat milk
100ml coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
100g monk fruit erythritol sweetener
-Coconut oil (for greasing)

Make panna cotta

  1. Lightly grease 2 ramekins with coconut oil.
  2. Add water to a bowl and sprinkle gelatin all over. Stir to combine and allow gelatin to bloom for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, add coconut milk, oat milk and monkfruit erythritol sweetener to a pot. Heat over low heat, while stirring, until mixture starts to steam. Do not let it come to a boil. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in bloomed gelatin until completely dissolved.
  5. Stir in vanilla extract.
  6. Pour mixture into the greased ramekins and chill in the fridge overnight or until completely set.

Make berry compote

  1. Put berries and maple syrup in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with a microwave-safe lid or plate. Remember to leave a little gap for steam to escape.
  2. Microwave for 1 minute, stir gently, then microwave for another minute.
  3. Let cool slightly then transfer to the fridge to chill overnight.


  1. Unmold panna cotta onto a plate and spoon berry compote on top. Enjoy!
  • Make sure you use full fat coconut milk that has no other additives for this recipe. Make sure it’s coconut milk, not coconut cream.
  • Feel free to substitute oat milk with any other plant based milk.
  • Feel free to substitute monkfruit erythritol sweetener with any other sweetener of choice.
  • To make this vegan, simply replace gelatin with agar agar. The texture will turn out slightly different but it will still be delicious!
  • You can skip the greasing step if you’re not planning to unmold the panna cotta.
  • If you’re having trouble unmolding the panna cotta from the ramekins, fill a large bowl with hot water and place the ramekins inside for a few seconds, and then if necessary, gently insert a knife to loosen the sides of the panna cotta. It should slide right out.
  • Take care not to burn yourself when removing the berry compote from the microwave! It will be hot and there will be hot steam!
