Valentine’s Raspberry Panna Cotta with a Hint of Mint

This is a really yummy dessert, is super easy to make and by utilizing a silicon mold in the shape of heart, it is perfect for your romantic Valentine’s Day dessert. Any time a recipe calls for vanilla I always prefer to use pure vanilla instead of the artificial kind however the pure vanilla typically found in a supermarket is extremely expensive. Here again Costco provides a top quality ingredient at a super price – Kirkland Signature Pure Vanilla with a price that is on average 7X cheaper.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 2

Ingredients
  • silicon mold(s) in the shape of a heart
  • ¾ cup whipping or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon gelatin
  • bag of mint tea
  • ½ teaspoon Kirkland Signature Pure Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • fresh mint for garnish
  • raspberry syrup
  • optional fresh raspberry for garnish

Instructions
  1. Brew the mint tea in approximately ¼ cup of boiling water. The longer the tea steeps for, the more intense the mint flavor will be, I did mine for about 45 seconds.
  2. Next dissolve the gelatin in the ¼ cup of mint tea.
  3. In a bowl add together the sugar, vanilla, your mint tea and the cream. Mix and then pour into your heart shaped silicon mold(s).
  4. Place in the refrigerator for at least three hours to allow it to set.
  5. When you are ready to serve the panna cotta, for easier removal from the silicon mold, place (float) the mold into a bowl of hot water for a few seconds, then pop out the dessert onto your serving plate.
  6. Garnish with a fresh mint spring, the raspberry syrup and optionally the raspberry.
  7. (This recipe will create 2 heart shaped panna cotta that are ½ cup each.)
