Sensational Passion Fruit Panna Cotta is made with coconut milk and will make you fly right to the tropics. It is a light and easy dessert to make for the whole family.

Panna Cotta means cooked cream in Italian from northern Italy, in Piedmont. It’s a simple dessert often aromatized with vanilla, rum, or coffee and topped with fruity coulis or caramel. However, this time, it’s the same format but with a Tropical flair! An easy, gluten-free, and elegant dessert to bite into.

Types of Passion Fruits

They call the larger yellow passion fruit Maracuya in South and Central America. This yellow version of passion fruit is more present than purple and has more juice. In South America, they make ceviche, cocktails, cheesecake, and ice cream with it, a reasonably common fruit. They both taste similar and contain the grains, but the yellow version contains double the goods.

Is it Ripe or Not?

Whether you found a yellow or purple variety, make sure it sounds full by shaking it, and just like avocados, don’t dare open a firm, polished one. You need it to be slightly wrinkled to get to the sweet juice! The seeds are comestible and beneficial to your health, but if you prefer smoother results, strain the passion fruit in a mesh strainer.

Variations

You could easily replace the passion fruit with any tropical fruit, like pineapple, mango, or even strawberries, which would be great in there. Keep some juice and some fruit bits for topping the pannacotta, and voila! You’ve got an elegant, fresh dessert!

    How very tropical! Perfect for summer. Panna cotta is one of my family’s favourite desserts.

  2. I love panna cotta, and I think the passion fruit adds a nice balance to it ! Looks lovely ! Thanks for sharing the recipe !

  3. This is so pretty! I’ve never had panna cotta and I clearly need to rectify that. I love the passion fruit jelly. It adds such a unique flair.

  4. What a beautifully made (and beautifully photographed!) dessert. I love that you let the passion fruit shine by putting it on top like that. I think it’s such a bold, delightful flavour that it really deserves to be given the starring role. Well done!

    • If you don’t find passion fruit, pineapple is great on top too, and keep the dish tropical;) You won’t regret to try, plus it’s so easy.
