Green Tea Panna Cotta

A friend of mine, Chef Derrick Peltz from Master Chef had recently shared an amazing recipe for Panna cotta.  Love my Panna cotta and thought, hmmmmm….I just wonder, could there possibly be a recipe for a Panna cotta made with Matcha?!?!  Well, I’ll be darn, as they say “Seek an ye shall find!

Green Tea Panna Cotta

Pannacotta
  •  3 cups whipping cream
  •  1 tsp vanilla extract
  •  pinch of salt
  •  1/3 cup Honey {I like my local honey}
  •  unflavored gelatin
  • Topping
  •  1/4 cup honey or sugar
  •  1/2 cup whipping cream
  •  2 tbs Matcha green tea powder
  •  whip cream (optional)
  •  raspberries (optional)
For the Pannacotta portion
Combine the cream, vanilla, salt, & honey in a
large pan, heat on low heat until warm, then
add gelatin (according to box instructions, i used
1/2 a serving package, others might require a few tbs).
Mix thoroughly until gelatin is completely dissolved. 
pour into individual serving cups or bowl & refrigerate,
until “gelled”.
For the Topping ;
In a mixing bowl, combine first 3 ingredients &
whip until fluffy. (the end result should be slightly
bitter from the tea, yet sweet from the cream & honey.)
Add a large spoonful of topping onto each serving cup,
add a dollop of whip cream, & top off with a raspberry.
ENJOY !
