Whenever I hear the word panna cotta all I think of is the Italian dessert made with cooked cream and gelatin which unfortunately is not vegan-friendly. But, who says that vegans cannot enjoy a creamy pannacotta too. For you to make your vegan panna cotta, all you need to do is to substitute your gelatin with agar-agar which is a sea vegetable with gelling properties. You will also need to substitute your cream and milk with a plant-based one.
