Lychee Pannacotta

Pannacotta is one of the light,creamy dessert to relish after a meal. Its an Italian dessert which calls for cream, gelatin. Sweetened cream thickened with gelatin and molded makes this luscious dessert 'Pannacotta'. Though gelatin is a must in this dessert, you can replace gelatin with agar-agar/chinagrass. Chinagrass is a vegetarian version of gelatin which is often used in many Asian cuisine. My today's dessert is a gluten free,stylish Italian dessert which is simply flavored with freshly squeezed lychee juice and lychee chunks in it.

Lychee Pannacotta with Agar Agar


Once served chilled, this lychee pannacotta tastes absolutely delicious to finish your meal with a fruity touch. Easy to prepare, you can prepare pannacotta with any sort of flavorings or fruits depending upon your mood. I have already tried couple of pannacottas with different fruits and flavorings, however lychee pannacotta was in my to do list since a while. Finally i dished out them last weekend for this week's theme. Yes am running this week's blogging marathon with 'Gluten free Desserts'.
