  • 480 ml (2 cups) Greek yogurt
  • 240 ml (1 cup) heavy cream
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons gelatin powder
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) cold water
  • For the Berry Compote:
  • 200 grams (7 ounces) mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Detailed Method of Preparation

  1. Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in a small bowl and let it sit for 5-10 minutes to bloom.
  2. In a saucepan, gently heat the heavy cream and honey until warm and the honey is dissolved. Do not boil. Remove from heat.
  3. Add the bloomed gelatin to the warm cream mixture, stirring until fully dissolved. Then, stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk the Greek yogurt until smooth. Gradually add the warm cream and gelatin mixture, whisking continuously to combine.
  5. Divide the mixture evenly among 6 serving glasses or ramekins. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until set.
  6. Combine the berries, sugar, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the berries have softened and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 5-10 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
  7. Top each panna cotta with the berry compote before serving.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • For a smoother texture, strain the cream and gelatin mixture before adding it to the Greek yogurt.
  • If using frozen berries for the compote, there's no need to thaw them first.
  • Experiment with different toppings like caramel sauce, chocolate shavings, or fresh fruit.
