Coconut Milk Panna Cotta with Orange and Mint
Serves: 4 servings.
  1. Have ready 4 ramekins for individual portions. Alternatively, you can set the panna cotta in a medium glass casserole dish, and scoop it out for "rustic, family-style" servings. Not as pretty, but still tasty.
  2. Have the coconut milk at room temperature. The coconut cream will naturally separate from the watery liquid in the cans, so use a blender or immersion blender to blend the coconut milk until smooth and creamy.
  3. In a medium saucepan, pour in 1 cup coconut milk. Sprinkle the gelatin over it, and let sit 5 minutes. Then, place the saucepan over medium heat and whisk until the gelatin is dissolved and the mixture is very hot.
  4. Take the saucepan off the heat and whisk the remaining ingredients. Let sit for an hour to steep the orange and mint. Then, strain out the orange and mint and pour the liquid into four ramekins.
  5. Let the panna cotta set for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
  6. Serve with fresh berries or fruit sauce, if desired.
