METHOD

Panna Cotta

Pour 200ml of Almond Breeze® into a saucepan, sprinkle 3 tablespoons of agar flakes evenly over the surface. Leave to sit for 10 minutes until the flakes soften.

Heat without stirring until Almond Breeze® begins to steam. Spoon in the coconut milk but NOT any residual coconut water, add the honey and stir until combined.

Heat and stir with a hand whisk regularly for a further 5 minutes until the flakes dissolve.

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix in.

Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 10 minutes. Pour evenly into 4 glasses.

Cover with cling film and place in the fridge for 6 hours or until set.

Rhubarb and ginger curd

In a medium pan, place the sliced rhubarb, ginger, 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and the juice of ½ a freshly squeezed lemon.

Gently bring to a simmer, cover and stir occasionally, until the rhubarb has fully softened.

Remove from heat. Press the rhubarb and ginger through a sieve into a bowl.

In a separate bowl whisk the sugar and eggs together. Pour the fruit back into the pan and add the egg and sugar mix. Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes until the mix thickens. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Remove the panna cotta from the fridge and spoon over the curd. Return to the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours to set.
