Petite Kitchen Recipe: Zesty Lime & Coconut Cream Panna Cotta Sprinkled With Coconut Crystals

Each year we can't wait for our New Zealand summer to roll around - long evenings, BBQ's and the beach. It doesn't get much better!

Yesterday marked the first day of summer so we asked our good friend Eley from one of our favourite food blogs Petite Kitchen to share her top summery dessert.

Check it out...

To mark the start of summer, I share with you this wonderful recipe for zesty lime and coconut cream panna cotta, containing only a small handful of simple and nourishing ingredients. This creamy and delicious dessert is ridiculously easy to prepare and is naturally sweetened and dairy free. I have topped the panna cotta with coconut crystals, but berries or fresh fruit would also work fantastically. Here's to a stunning summer!

You will need:

  • 3 tsp agar flakes

  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 3 tbsp honey, maple or agave syrup

  • 1 can full fat coconut cream

  • 4 tbsp coconut sugar/crystals for sprinkling


  1. Combine the agar flakes, lime juice and honey in a small saucepan over low heat. Bring to a soft boil and simmer on low for 2 minutes.

  2. Add the coconut cream, whisk well and bring to a soft boil. Simmer for a further 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat and leave to cool for 5 minutes.

  3. Carefully pour the coconut cream into four glass jars or bowls.

  4. Place in the fridge to set for at least two hours.

  5. To serve, sprinkle with the coconut sugar/crystals, and enjoy chilled.
