With taster on at Slimming World tomorrow I thought I’d try and make a panacotta. What flavour though…. Well I decided why not try a chai Latte one. I do love a chai Latte and had just bought muller light skinny latte to try. So the decision was made.
I was slightly worried as it does look quite moose like but it held its shape and tastes like a chai Latte – even though a chai Latte doesn’t have coffee in it.
500g muller light Greek style skinny latte yoghurt
1/2 tsp crushed cardamon seeds
2 Clove heads crushed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 egg (white only)
5 sheets gelatine
Whisk the quark, add the cinnamon, ginger, cardamon seeds, the crushed clove heads and skinny latte yoghurt. Whisk well.
Soak the gelatine in cold water for 5 minutes. Squeeze out the excess water and place in a saucepan that has a little bit of boiling water (about 30ml) and mix well until dissolved. You then want to slowly add this to you mixture whilst whisking continuously. This will make a smooth mixture.
Then whisk the egg white until it forms stiff peeks when you pull the whisk out. You then want to add this to the mixture and fold this in. I then put this in my dish and put in the fridge to set for 3-4 hours.
As this is for my taster and the first time I’ve made a panacotta I put it in a large bowl for my slimming World group just to help themselves and we also put some in small bowl to see how it set and for us to try. (the small bowl portion is the half eaten pic at the start of this post) sorry was got to stuck in then I remembered I was meant to take a pic.
It would look lovely made in individual dishes and I have read to get the panacotta out that you place the dishes in hot water – do not put too much water so that it doesn’t pour into the dishes. This should help ease it out and you serve straight away.
It is very tasty and bonus is that it is syn free. Definitely a dessert for a dinner party.
If you give this recipe a go, leave a comment and let me know what you think.
