by IBD Medical on March 17, 2021

panna cotta

This version of Panna Cotta is made with coconut milk as a healthier (yet still delicious) alternative for cream. Passionfruits are a good source of beta-carotene, vitamin C, fibre and contain a very small amount of sugar. This is a revamped version of the classic, which is a great and healthier option.
