Panna Cotta with Mixed Berries Sauce

I was craving for dessert the other night,
My fridge and cabinet almost turned up side down because I was searching so desperately for possible dessert ingredients.
I was able to pull out something and made this dessert.

Panna Cotta with Mixed Berries Sauce-

Ingredients (for 1 medium panna cotta)?

Panna Cotta:
0.25 ounce of gelatin powder
1 tablespoon of milk (preferably whole milk)
1 cup of heavy cream (half & half works too)
2 tablespoons of honey
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Mixed Berries Sauce:
1 cup of mixed berries
1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of milk


Simply mix the gelatin powder with milk first, set aside.

In a small pot,
Pour in the heavy cream or half & half together with honey,
Turn to medium heat, stir it constantly and bring to a boil.

After it's boiling, turn the heat down a little bit and add the gelatin mixture.
Keep stirring for about 30 seconds.
Add the vanilla extract.
Stir well and pour the liquid into a container.
Cup, small bowl, wine glass, they all work, just pick the one with the shape you like.
Let it cool for about an hour, uncovered.
After that,
Transfer the container to the fridge and refrigerate it overnight.

You can make the sauce before serving,
Simply combine all the ingredients for the sauce and puree them in the blender.

There you have it.

I got to satisfy my craving after all,
Just had to wait overnight.

End Note:
I was trying to find a right angle while taking this picture,
Took me a while to figure out the setting,
I decided to wait no more,
That's why this panna cotta is missing a part...
