Hello there!!!

Who's ready for a super delicious desert recipe??
This was the very first time I made a Panna Cotta and of course, it had to be strawberry! :-) I just love strawberries...

Anyway, to make this, you need time, because to get to the final result, you have to do it in three steps and wait until they are firm enough. But here is the ingredients list:

Panna Cotta Strawberry mousse Strawberry sauce
Cream: 250 ml
Yogurt: 100 g
Sugar: 45 g
Vanilla: 1 
Gelatin: 2.5 sheets

Strawberry (mashed): 100 g
Sugar: 15 g
Gelatin: 1 sheet
Cream (very cold!): 75g

Strawberry (mashed): 150 g
Gelatin: 2 sheets
Sugar: 35 g

How to:
A - Panna Cotta
1)   Soften the gelatin sheets in cold water;
2)   Heat up the cream with the sugar and vanilla stick (open and remove the seeds first);
3)   When boiling, remove from the heat.
4)   Remove the vanilla stick, add the gelatin and stir it quickly.
5)   Let it cool down before you put it in the fridge

B - Strawberry Mousse
1)   Soften the gelatin sheets in cold water;
2)   Warm up half of the mashed strawberries with the sugar;
3)   Once boiling, remove from the heat and add the gelatin. Stir it quickly!
4)   Add the remain mashed strawberries and mix it together. Let it cool down.
5)   Whisk the cream until it gets to a whipped cream. Add it to the strawberry mix.
6)    Pour it over the first layer (A).

C - Strawberry sauce
Repeat steps 1, 2  and 3 from B.
Once the strawberry mousse has a nice firm consistency, add a layer of the strawberry sauce over it and let it cool down in the fridge.

I know it sounds complicated, but it's not! :-)

Well, all I can say is that this is a great summer desert: fresh, fruity and not too sweet!
I hope you enjoy it.

Bom apetite! :-)
