Author Notes

Perfect for all seasons, this quick and easy vegan dessert keeps it simple, highlighting fresh raspberries and chocolate. Taking advantage of agar agar to form the gelatin, this dish will be ready to serve much faster than your average panna cotta while still maintaining its shape. Garnish with basil or mint to accent this classic combination. —Michael K. Bergin

  • Prep time 10 minutes
  • Cook time 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Serves 6
Ingredients
  • For the Raspberry Panna Cotta Layer
  • 6 ounces Fresh Raspberries
  • 1.5 cups Oat Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Agar Agar
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • For the Chocolate Panna Cotta Layer
  • 4 ounces Finely Chopped Vegan Dark Chocolate
  • 1.5 cups Oat Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Agar Agar
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 small pinches Sea Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Pour 1.5 cups of oat milk into a medium saucepan. Add one tablespoon of agar agar to the saucepan and whisk lightly to incorporate. Let stand for five minutes.
  2. During this time, add the raspberries to a food processor and blend until smooth. Remove the raspberry puree from the food processor and push through a fine mesh sieve to remove seeds, yielding approximately 0.5 cups of liquid.
  3. Bring the oat milk mixture to a simmer over medium low heat and add 2 tablespoons of sugar, stirring occasionally. Bring the mixture to a low boil over medium heat for one minute then remove from heat and stir in the raspberry puree.
  4. Let the mixture cool at room temperature for 10 minutes before pouring into six lightly-oiled ramekins, filling to the halfway point. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  5. While the raspberry mixture is cooling, rinse out and dry your saucepan. Repeating the process from step one, add 1.5 cups of oat milk to the pan and lightly whisk in 1 tablespoon of agar agar, letting the mixture again stand for five minutes.
  6. Bring to a simmer over medium low heat and add 2 tablespoons of sugar, ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a small pinch of sea salt. Add 4 ounces of finely chopped vegan dark chocolate to the mixture then increase heat to medium to boil, whisking actively to incorporate.
  7. Once the mixture reaches a boil, remove from heat and let cool at room temperature for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once cooled, pour into the ramekins and chill for an additional 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  8. When chilled, remove from refrigerator and, using a small paring knife, cut around the edge of each panna cotta to loosen from the ramekin. Place a plate on top of each ramekin and invert to remove the panna cotta.
  9. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Very impressed by this recipe! It was so easy to make and very delicious. It’s oftentimes difficult finding creative vegan dessert options for the whole family to enjoy (vegan and non vegan), but this exceeded all expectations. Would definitely make again!

This recipe is so creative! It’s often hard to find vegan options that are tasty and add some variety to a vegan diet! Very excited about having this new option that you don’t have to be a professional to make (but tastes like it)!!!

What a great recipe, it tasted amazing! It was so easy to follow and mostly included ingredients that I already had. Sometimes vegan desserts are hard to get right, but this nailed it, and all of my family members (both vegan and not) loved it!

I'm going to try this as a weekend dessert for my mom (she's vegan). I'm not usually one for vegan food, but this sounds like it might different, or at least a good way in.

I attempted to make this dessert recently. As someone who loves plant based desserts and is not an expert in making desserts, I found this dish to be easy to make. The recipe was also easy to follow. The dessert comes out delicious and is very healthy! I will be making it again and maybe trying to mix in some new fruits!
