Happy Mother’s Day – Celebrating with Panacotta

08 May

Panacotta is an Italian “melt-in-mouth” Dessert. The ingredients are simple but the dessert is so rich and can be made in whatever flavors you like them. One of our favorite dessert these days. Last week my daughter asked to prepare for her again. But I wanted to do it and surprise her on Mother’s Day.

I know that Riya has been making presents for me over last week in her KG.  She wanted to keep everything as a surprise to me until today morning.  Additionally, Whenever she gets a paper in hand, she was drawing and coloring lot’s of heartin and gifting me. Today was wonderful for me . I felt like as if my B’day is celebrated one more time with lots of love, fun and hand made presents.

I am lucky to get all these presents from Riya. They are looking  lovely.

One more cup of Panacotta…


  1. Fresh Cream( Whipping cream) – 300 ml
  2. Milk – 200 ml
  3. Gelatin – 10 gm ( Powdered or Gelatin sheets)
  4. Sugar – 80 gm
  5. Flavors – few drops ( I have added Strawberry Essense, the color the flavor was together)
  6. Color – favourite food color, little


1.  Add gelatin in a bowl and add little water to soak it. Leave it for 5 minutes.

2. Heat the fresh cream and milk  in another utensil and  add sugar. let it for 5 min in medium flame.

3. Now add the gelatin and mix it well . You can see the gelatin getting dissolved in the milk.

4. Add flavoring and color as per your wish  and switch of the stove. At this point this mixture can be separated in to portions for adding different colors and flavors.

5. Finally pour this mixture in a bowl and leave it the refridgerator overnight.

Note: After pouring the cream milk mixture in to the bowl, I have added few drops of essence and made like swirls which gave me a marble pattern effect . I drew other designs as well when the mixture is still liquid. After Refridgerating it , the outlines were drawn.


Wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day.
