Lemongrass and Coconut Panna Cotta topped with passionfruit and a flower

Lemongrass Panna Cotta with Passion Fruit

  • Author: Spicepaw
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4-5 1x


Creamy panna cotta made with coconut milk and cream infused with lemongrass. Served with fresh passion fruit on top, this dessert tastes sweetly tropical. #desserts #sweets #easyentertaining #pannacotta #coconut


  • 400 ml (13.5 oz) heavy cream
  • 200 ml (6.8 oz) coconut milk
  • 2 tsp powdered gelatin
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 lemongrass stalks (washed and cut lengthwise)
  • 45 passion fruits


  1. Combine heavy cream, sugar and lemongrass stalks and stir together.
  2. Pour coconut milk into a medium-sized bowl and sprinkle with the gelatin.  Stir together and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Slowly bring cream mixture to a boil on low-med heat.  The cream should take on the flavor of the lemongrass and the mixture should be smooth with the sugar completely dissolved.
  4. Gently boil for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Remove lemongrass stalks.  You can pick it out a fork or run it through a sieve
  6. Add coconut milk with gelatin mixture to the hot cream and mix well.   Make sure to rub a pinch of it between your fingers to make sure it is smooth with no bits of grit.
  7. Pour into ramekins, small bowls or small glasses (whatever you think is a good size, about 1/2 cup).
  8. Cover with plastic cling film and place to cool and set in the fridge overnight.
  9. When ready to eat, dip the bottom half of the ramekin/bowl/glass in hot water to loosen it from the container and transfer it to a plate.  (You can skip this part if you want and just eat it straight from the ramekin/bowl/or glass as I do)
  10. Cut open passion fruit and spoon the fruit over the panna cotta. You can use as little or as much fruit as you like.  I prefer 1 passion fruit per every panna cotta serving.
  11. Serves 4-5. Eat and enjoy!
