Mango Panna Cotta

Spring is here and we are enjoying some very nice warm weather here. So it is time to make some refreshing dessert. Mango is abundance at our produce market and it cost only $1.00 each. Being one of my favorite fruits I like eating it as it is or make it into dessert. This dessert is easy to make and has a light, velvety texture. Mango adds a stunning color and exotic flavor to it.


7 grm gelatin (1 packet) + 3 tbsp of water
2 ½ cups full cream milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 ripe mango – cut into small cubes or puree

1. Mix the gelatin and water together and set it aside to bloom.
2. Put the milk and sugar in a saucepan, cook over low medium heat until bubbles form around the edges of the saucepan.
3. Remove from heat and add in the vanilla and stir in the gelatin. Stir until the gelatin dissolved.
4. Pour the mixture into six ramekins or cups. At this stage you can add in some cut mango and refrigerate until set or you can serve it with some mango puree.

Can I use fresh milk from the supermarket for full cream milk?

Btw, what is the meaning of leaving the mixture of gelatin and water to bloom?
