Hooray for easy keto strawberry recipes! This delicious sugar-free panna cotta will have your tastebuds singing. Only 5 ingredients and it takes a few short minutes to make.
We are THIS close to strawberry season here in the Pacific Northwest. I can feel it in my bones. It doesn’t hurt that it’s about 85 degrees right now (yes, in April) and we all have that summer feeling. Everyone is walking around in shorts and light dresses, flip flops and sandals, enjoying this wee bit of warm sunshine before it goes back to the rainy mid-50s. Just in time for the weekend, of course!
But you know what? While it’s still spring, I am ready for keto strawberry recipes already. Once those berries are truly in season, I am sure they will make their way into any number of my low carb cakes and pies. But I am kicking us off with a super simple and utterly delicious Strawberry Panna Cotta. If you’ve never had panna cotta, you need to rectify this immediately. It’s a deceptively simple dessert, easy to make in a few short minutes but it has an elegance that belies its simplicity. You can leave it in the pretty dessert dishes or you can choose to flip it out onto a plate.
How to Make Low Carb Panna Cotta
Panna cotta means “cooked cream” in Italian and it has the consistency of a custard but it’s set with gelatin rather than egg yolks. And it’s not all that “cooked” either. Unlike a custard that you have to stand over, watching carefully until it thickens, panna cotta is gently warmed, just enough to dissolve the gelatin. Done right, panna cotta should be almost barely gelled once it sets. It should be creamy and rich, with a little wobble to it when you dig in your spoon.
But it should also be packed full of flavor, like this keto strawberry panna cotta is. I can’t rave about this easy low carb dessert enough, really. It was fresh and light tasting but also cold and creamy. And at 4g net carbs, it was infinitely satisfying too!
