Coconut Pannacotta with Homemade Orange Marmalade

Panna cotta is an Italian dessert meaning ‘cooked cream’. It is a simple and easy to make recipe. It is sweet but not overwhelmingly sweet that overpowers your senses. Panna Cotta can be topped with any kind of berries or fruit purees. This is a light and creamy dessert with coconut milk topped with some orange marmalade I made the other day (see my previous post ) @sarchakra


  • Coconut milk 1 ½ cups 
  • Cream 1 ½ cups 
  • Vanilla 2 tsp
  • Gelatin 1 tbsp 
  • Sugar ⅓ cup 
  • Orange zest 2 tbsp, grated 
  • Orange marmalade 2 tbsp diluted with 1 tbsp of water 
  • Ramekins 3
  • Oil for greasing


  • Grease 3 ramekins with oil. Wipe with a kitchen towel to spread a thin layer of oil all around the ramekins. 
  • In a pan mix in 2 tbsp of water and pour in the gelatin. Let it sit for a couple of minutes. Turn the heat on and gently melt the gelatin so that no lumps remain. Set aside. 
  • In another pan heat cream, coconut milk and sugar. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat off. Add vanilla and the gelatin. 
  • Divide the mixture into the greased ramekins and set it aside. Cool them. Cover with a clingwrap and place the ramekins in the fridge for a few hours. 
  • When ready to serve, dip each ramekin into a bowl of hot water for a couple of seconds, and invert in to a plate. 
  • Serve with orange marmalade and orange zest.
