Healthy Panna Cotta Recipe
Are you a fan of the Italian cuisine? I know I am! The Mediterranean cooking is usually considered healthy with loads of healthy fats, seafood, and yummy fiber-rich veggies and fruits. Unfortunately, it could also be quite fattening with the wide variety of wheat meals – pasta, pizza, and irresistible bread recipes.
Pssst! Don’t forget I have a very simple gluten-free pizza crust recipe you can try at home, if you wish to skip the allergy-causing wheat protein:
And not to mention the desserts such as our beloved panna cotta!
This is one of my most favorite Italian desserts because I loooove wobbly treats that jiggle! 😀
Unfortunately, panna cotta can be quite heavy and packed with white sugar. And here we are trying to keep a balanced diet plan, right?
Sooooo, drums, please! Introducing my variation of healthy panna cotta recipe without white sugar, but packed with probiotics! Ta daa!
Want to know what probiotics are and why they are so important to our health and wellness, read the previous article! => Building the Immune System with Probiotic Gut Health Foods
Now, let’s get back to our healthy panna cotta!
Usually, this Italian classic consists of milk, heavy cream, sugar, and gelatin. Well, the milk can be healthy, especially if you choose organic goat milk. See more:
Heavy cream also has been rehabilitated recently due to the popularity of the keto diet, but only if you use the unsweetened variation. You can read my testimonial about the benefits of the low carb diet plan on the Dr.Axe website. => I Tried Keto for 30 Days — Here’s What Happened
But I wanted to make this treat even healthier, so I substituted the cream with high-fat Bulgarian yogurt. This dairy product is a wonderful addition to any healthy lifestyle. It’s packed with essential beneficial gut healing bacteria (probiotics), it’s lactose-free, and it is a perfect food for weight-loss! Man, I can’t begin to describe all the wonderful benefits of Bulgarian yogurt, so I made a special blog post about it. Enjoy it right here!
I know it has been in the thick shadow of Greek yogurt, but it absolutely does not deserve to be overlooked!
Moving on then!
High quality gelatin is also a good ingredient since it nourishes the connective tissues and strengthens the joints in a natural way which is wonderful.
The problem with this dessert is sugar. I don’t think I need to explain why. So, for this healthy panna cotta recipe we will be using raw honey which is a wonderful white sugar alternative!
It is packed with essential nutrients such as vitamins, micro-elements, and minerals. Honey has strong immune-boosting, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties as well!
But if you don’t like this natural sweetener or in case of a bee product allergy, feel free to substitute with maple syrup, coconut sugar, licorice extract, etc.
Oooooorrrr, remember that if you want to make a low carb version, you can always add stevia extract which is excellent for maintaining a slender physique!
Now, finally, let’s get to our healthy panna cotta recipe! It’s ridiculously easy to make!
