Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream or full-fat coconut milk (240 ml/ 8 fl oz)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, cashew milk or macadamia milk (240 ml/ 8 fl oz)
  • 1 tbsp Erythritol or Swerve (10 g/ 0.4 oz) – you can skip or use more to taste
  • 2 tsp gelatin powder or 3-4 gelatin leaves
  • 1/4 cup water (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 2 Earl Grey tea bags or 2 tbsp loose tea


  1. Place the cream, almond milk and sweetener in a saucepan and heat over medium heat.
    Note: You can use more sweetener if you want, but I find that this recipe lends itself to being only slightly sweetened. Alternatively, you can use a few drops of stevia.Low-Carb Earl Grey Panna Cotta
  2. Place the tea bags in the cream mixture to steep while it heats up.
  3. Place your gelatin leaves in about 1 cup of cold water, or bloom your gelatin powder in 1/4cup of cold water. Add the bloomed gelatin to the hot milk mixture and stir until completely dissolved.
    Note: Instead of powdered gelatin, you can use 3-4 gelatin leaves, enough to set 500 ml/ 17 fl oz of liquid. I used gelatin leaves because they give a wonderfully smooth result but you can also use powdered gelatin.Low-Carb Earl Grey Panna Cotta
  4. Take the pot off the heat and sit aside for the tea to infuse further for 10 minutes. Squeeze the tea bags out into the mixture and discard.
  5. Pour the mixture into serving dishes. I used one large shallow bowl, but individual pots or glasses would look pretty too.

  6. Place in refrigerator for approx. 2 hours, or until set.Low-Carb Earl Grey Panna Cotta
  7. Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
    Note: you can place cling wrap on the surface to avoid the wrinkled effect that you see in my photos, but I kind of like the texture and interest that it lends to the dish. You may not want that. I would suggest not using a big shallow bowl if you want to avoid the wrinkles on top, the smaller your surface area the least likely it is to wrinkle.
