“Playing with a basic recipe for panna cotta, I wanted to make it pink for Valentine's Day. I added raspberries to give a hint of fruit flavor and the raspberries die the dessert pink! If you would like it even more pink, you may add a drop of red food coloring to the mix. This recipe makes 3 teacup size molds or servings. Cooking time is chill time. Hope you enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. NOTE: You will need a small sieve or strainer.
  2. Mix together the yogurt and the buttermilk in a medium bowl.
  3. To create the gelatine, put the cold water into a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatine over it. Let that sit for 5 minutes, then put it in the microwave on regular power for 30 seconds.
  4. In another little bowl; mix together the sugar and the vanilla bean paste.
  5. Using your sieve, mash the 1 TBSP raspberries into the sugar-vanilla bowl to create a puree and keep the seeds out. Mash very hard until all of the raspberries are pureed then scrape the bottom of your sieve of any remaining puree.
  6. Mix vanilla sugar and raspberry puree together well then pour in (little by little so it is tempered) your gelatine into the mix. Stir to blend.
  7. Pour the raspberry mix into the yogurt mix and stir well. Pour the mix into little molds or teacups for a cute presentation.
  8. Chill the dishes in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  9. Serve in cute dishes or you may unmold them by dipping the dishes into hot water for 1 second then invert onto a serving plate.
  10. Garnish with the rest of the raspberries.
