Serving Ideas for Panacotta (Traditional Italian Dessert)

by Sarah Grain Free, Recipes, Snacks and TreatsComments: 4

A couple of months ago, one of my weekly videoblogs featured my friend Maureen Diaz.   Maureen blogs for Liberation Wellness and is author of the book Traditional Food Preparation Techniques.

Ever since Maureen showed us all how to make panacotta (traditional Italian dessert) during that videoblog, I’ve made this dish for my family at least once a week!    We absolutely love this recipe in my home!   If you haven’t tried it yet, make sure you check out the panacotta videoblog and be amazed that something so delicious can literally take less than 5 minutes to make!

As a follow-up to that videoblog, I am posting a few pictures of how we enjoy panacotta in our home.    I hope you try making it very soon if you haven’t already.   Please post your own serving ideas in the comments section.   I would love to get more ideas for how to enjoy this fabulous and healthy dessert!   I must confess that I actually eat it for breakfast sometimes!

Serving Suggestion 1:

Panacotta is delicious served with seasonally ripe nectarines and peaches!

Serving Suggestion 2:

Panacotta is fabulous with mango chunks as well!

Serving Suggestion 3:
Serve panacotta with some crushed, raw nuts sprinkled on top.   The photo shows pecans, but you could use almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts, cashews, or any mixture you choose.
One more thing .. I have found it easiest to dissolve the plain, unflavored gelatin in a bit of boiling water before stirring it into the cream.   I had no luck dissolving it directly in warmed cream as Maureen showed in the videoblog without ending up with little lumps of gelatin in the final dish.   Dissolving in a bit of boiling water first ensures a very smooooooooth panacotta!
