Dairy-Free Panna Cotta Recipe




Yield 8 +

Delicious and creamy homemade coconut milk panna cotta is a perfect nutrient-rich treat for any time of year. With healthy fats, skin-healthy gelatin, and a hint of vanilla it's a family favorite at our house!



  1. Pour both milks into a medium saucepan and sprinkle gelatin over the top.
  2. Gently whisk in gelatin and wait 5 minutes before turning on the heat to allow the gelatin to soften.
  3. Add honey and maple syrup and vanilla to saucepan.
  4. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until milk is hot enough to steam. Do not boil as this will deactivate the gelling properties of the gelatin.
  5. Lightly grease small bowls or molds with coconut oil and pour the heated mixture into the bowls.
  6. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 5-6 hours or overnight.
  7. Serve in bowls or gently turn out onto serving dishes and add toppings.


  • Coconut milk or almond milk may be used, just use 4 cups of milk total. Dairy milk also works well for this recipe.
  • Make sure that the gelatin is actual gelatin and not collagen hydrolysate/collagen peptides or it will not gel.
  • Honey or maple syrup can be used alone or left out completely. Fresh fruit puree can also be used for natural sweetness.
