Raspberry Panna Cotta

I had a fun get together with friends and wanted a yummy special dessert. A couple of years ago on a cruise I tasted the most delicious dessert I have ever eaten and it turned out to be Raspberry Panna Cotta. When I looked it up online, it didn't seem too difficult so I decided to give it a try. It was really fun to make and pretty yummy. It definitely wasn't as good as the cruise version, but still pretty tasty. I made two batches. The first was way too strong on the honey taste so I modified it for the next batch. I used several recipes from online and combined them for my final product. I also had some cute chocolate molds for a little fancy decoration on top.

Raspberry Panna Cotta

2 tbsp cold water
1 1/2 tsp unflavored gelatin
12 oz light raspberry yogurt
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp honey
red food coloring

Pour cold water into microwave-safe cup and sprinkle with gelatin. Wait 5 minutes, then heat in microwave for 15 seconds. Gently whisk together yogurt, cream and honey - then stir in gelatin. Add food coloring to get it the color you want.

Divide mixture among 6 small glasses or molds. Chill for at least 3 hours. Run knife around edges of cups to unmold panna cottas onto plates.

Top with fresh raspberries, whipping cream, or fancy chocolate.
