About Matcha Panna Cotta
What I love the most about making panna cotta is how simple and easy it is, even though the name sounds kind of foreign and fancy. It includes very few basic ingredients and is basically a mixture of cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, matcha powder, as well as gelatin. The gelatin sheets set the mixture and create a firm silky creamy smooth texture that jiggles whenever you touch it, while still being soft enough to readily melt in your mouth.
The addition of matcha gives distinct earthy bitterness to this beautiful dessert. The taste of Matcha Panna Cotta is like a matcha latte but in dessert form. In addition, matcha powder is packed with antioxidants and comes with many health benefits. Matcha powder is a natural detoxifier, it calms and relaxes the body, boosting the metabolism and increasing energy levels, as well as potent supporting the immune system.
You will just love this gorgeously creamy panna cotta recipe. It is so simple to prepare and wonderful for serving to guests. It could be made in advance. You can either turn them out of the molds onto a plate or just spoon it right from the ramekin. If you want to plate a panna cotta, remember to grease the ramekins for easy unmolding. The best method to remove a panna cotta is to dip each ramekin into a bowl filled with hot water for 5 seconds. Then, invert it onto a serving plate. If the panna cotta does not unmold right away, shake it lightly to loosen it.
