Re-design your sweets!! If you have ever tried panna cotta, you know how rich and, - ...well - ‘fatty’ this dessert tastes. My plant based version preserves all the richness of this Italian classic while replacing the bad ingredients with healthy fats and fresh fruit. Why give up desserts when you can just re-design it?! TIP: Figs aren’t in season? Try replace them with some ripe papaya! Its buttery texture is perfect for creating layers of deliciousness. And its delicate ﬂavor ﬁnds a perfect enhancement with the pungent hint of Limoncello! —Ambra Torelli
