Lavender Panna Cotta is a luxurious dessert that is easier to make than you think. This dessert is slightly sweet and super creamy with a floral infusion from lavender buds.
Please do not get bored with me posting panna cotta recipes again and again. Panna cotta is simply my favorite dessert so I just could not resist making one especially since it just took minutes to make this dessert.
This is another series of my Tea Infused Panna Cotta, so do not forget to check out my other recipes while you are visiting my website. I guarantee you will not get disappointed. After my success with rose and chamomile infused panna cotta, we will now explore how it fares with another flower series, lavender.
About Lavender Panna Cotta
Lavender is a member of the mint family and is close to rosemary, sage, and thyme. I guess that is why lavender is best known for its good scent. It has broadened over the past years showcasing this aromatic herb in everything from desserts to cocktails with savory dishes in between. The flowers and leaves can be used fresh, and both buds and stems can be used dried.
For cooking, you should use culinary lavender. It may be purchased at well-stocked grocery stores, herb/spice stores, as well as grown in a pot or home garden for picking anytime. You cannot find one, you should try searching online. I found dried lavender buds at Amazon and it should look like that.
Let me remind you that I used purple food coloring to make this panna cotta purple. Without it, your panna cotta will be white in color. The lavender infusion does not affect the color at all.
How does this Lavender Panna Cotta taste like? It tastes sweet with floral scent and flavor with mint and rosemary undertones. Yes, it tastes a little perfumy, but not that overpowering and tolerable. One thing for sure is that I feel fancy eating this.
