No Bake, Dairy-Free, Vanilla Toasted Almond Panna Cotta ~ Classic panna cotta is a no bake, creamy Italian dessert flavored to taste like our favorite Good Humor Toasted Almond ice cream bar; only this one is dairy-free! Yum!
  • 2 cups (1 pint) coconut creamer (I used Trader Joes)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. pure almond extract
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 packet of unflavored gelatin
  • 2 Tbsp. organic shredded coconut
  1. Pour 2 cups of coconut creamer into a small pot and over medium-low heat. Add the vanilla, almond extract and sugar.
  2. Whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved and the creamer is heated through. Do not bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add in the unflavored gelatin and whisk continuously until the gelatin is melted and completely blended. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Divide the mixture among four (4-ounce) glasses, or dessert cups or decorative molds. Cover and refrigerate for at least four hours or over night before serving.
  4. Just before serving, in a small skillet add the shredded coconut and on low heat to warm the coconut until fragrant and turn golden color. Turn off heat and set it aside. Toasting the coconut can also be done in advance and stored in a small container until ready to use.
  5. When ready to serve panna cotta, fill a small bowl with warm water, about 1 inch. Dip the glasses into the warm water for a few seconds and run the tip of a knife around the edge to loosen the panna cotta. Invert each one onto a dessert plate or platter and garnish with a sprinkle of toasted coconut, and serve immediately.
  6. Serves 4
