Honey Peach Panna Cotta

Honey Peach Panna Cotta

Recipe source : Adapted from Dairy Goodness

The original recipe used peach puree. But I opted to chop the peaches instead of blending into a puree. I like a slight bite to the peaches and I like the speckled design of the peaches against the creamy milk. The honey was a brilliant addition instead of using sugar.

This is a wonderful and very refreshing dessert.


2 1/2 tsp agar-agar powder      ( original recipe used gelatin )
500 ml milk, divided into 2 portions
a pinch of salt
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 can sliced peaches in juice
Ground cinnamon                     ( I omitted this )

Fresh milk

 Canned peaches


1.  Sprinkle agar-agar powder into one portion of milk. Stir to mix well.
2.  Pour the other portion of milk into a small pot and heat over low heat until steaming.
3.  Add in the portion of agar-agar mixture. Continue stirring until it comes to a boil.
4.  Remove from flame and add in honey, salt and vanilla extract. Allow to cool.
5.  Chop 3/4 cup of peaches and add in 1 tbsp of the canned juice. Pour the chopped peaches into the slightly cooled down pudding. 
6.  Pour into 4 small cups. Leave to cool. 
7.  Cover the cups with cling film and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
8.  When chilled, use a sharp knife to run around the edge of the panna cotta and invert onto a serving plate.
9.  Garnish with sliced peaches and sprinkle with ground cinnamon (optional).

 Pour into small cups and allow to set before chilling
