This passion fruit panna cotta recipe is equal parts sweet and tart. Using passion fruit juice makes this an easy dessert to put together and gives it a beautiful floral fragrance.
In a saucepan sprinkle 1 1/2 tsp of unflavored gelatin over 1/4 cup of whole milk, stir and allow to bloom for 2-3 minutes. Then, heat gently and keep stirring until the gelatin is dissolved.
Add 1/2 cup of cream and heat once again just until steaming. Do not boil.
Next, add 2/3 cups sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved completely.
Now, slowly pour 1 cup of cold cream into the hot gelatin mixture while continuously whisking.
Add 1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla emulsion (it will have vanilla beans) and 1 cup of sour cream and whisk until the mixture is smooth. Lastly, add 1/2 cup passion fruit juice or puree. Whisk everything until it's well combined.
For mini portions, use 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour the passion fruit panna cotta into mini cups. For regular portions use regular wine glasses and add 1/2 cup of panna cotta mixture into each glass.
This recipe should give you about 12 mini cups or 6 regular 1/2 cup portions.
* We will be adding the sour passion fruit puree to the milk mixture and if the cream mixture is too hot, it will separate from the acid in the passion fruit puree.
** If you mix cold cream and hot gelatin too fast, the gelatin might clump up into unsightly gummy chunks. If this happens, just heat the whole mixture and stir to dissolve the gelatin.
