For the syrup:

  • 2 tbsp brown rice syrup
  • 2 slices of fresh ginger

For the panna cotta:

  • 1 can lite coconut cream, (400ml)
  • 2 tbsp brown rice syrup
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 tsp agar agar powder
  • Fruit of your choice, to serve


For the syrup:

  • Put rice syrup and ginger slices into a small saucepan. Heat over a low temperature until bubbling. Let it bubble for a minute or two, then turn off the heat.
  • Discard the ginger slices (or eat them!) and pour syrup evenly into the base of two ramekins. Set aside.

For the panna cotta:

  • Put coconut cream, brown rice syrup, vanilla, both gingers and the agar agar into a small saucepan and stir to combine. If there are any clumps of dried ginger, press them against the side of the saucepan to break them up.
  • Heat over a low-medium temperature until mixture is simmering. Simmer for five minutes, then turn off the heat (this step is essential to activate the agar agar).
  • Let the mixture cool for about 10 minutes, then strain through a fine sieve and pour evenly into ramekins. Refrigerate for a few hours until set and ready to serve. Unlike gelatin, agar agar will set at room temperature so you could leave them on the countertop if you prefer.
  • When it's time to serve, sit the ramekins in a larger bowl and pour boiling water around them (careful not to pour it onto the panna cotta itself). Let sit for a few minutes to melt the syrup.
  • Lift the panna cotta out, put a small plate or bowl on top then quickly and confidently flip them both over at the same time. Give it a single downwards shake if you like, to be sure the panna cotta has released, then remove the ramekins.
  • Dress with sliced fruit and serve immediately.
