Dessert: Low Carb Treats/ Entertaining

Lemon & Clementine Panna Cotta

It’s time again for the Monthly Ingredient Challenge:
A few of us super-talented foodies get together and decide on an ingredient for each month. We each have to create something fabulous with that ingredient and share it on our blogs.
{At the bottom of this post is a link that you can click on to view everyone’s recipes – check it out!}

I decided to make a panna cotta terrine – yes, yes, another terrine…!
Panna cotta is one of my favourite desserts – it’s the perfect light and refreshing dessert for a hot day and it’s super easy to make too.

The ingredient this month was lemon.

I love lemons and I use it a lot in just about every dish. It really lifts the flavours as part of the ingredients and when used as the main ingredient – well, it’s just so refreshing and invigorating!
Who doesn’t like lemons?!

I was in the mood for something a bit more fancy-looking and zhoosh…
So, here’s my recipe for a lemon panna cotta terrine with clementine panna cotta balls and poached clementine & lemon elements:

You’ll want to serve this up at your next dinner party – your guests will be suitably impressed!

      Hi Leia,

      Thanks! You’ve gotta try it – can’t believe you’ve never had it! My dad always made it and I used to think it must be such a complicated dessert to make – until I just tried it one day…
      Super easy!

    That looks so fancy! I’ve never had panna cotta but it looks kind of like jello maybe?

      Hi Meaghan,

      Yes, it’s kind of like a cream-jello.. It’s basically just cooked cream {I.e. Heated} with gelatin {and a flavour of choice}.

      But yes, it does look and taste a bit more fancy than it really is!

      Try it!
