This avocado and coconut panna cotta is a delicious treat that is easier to make than you think. Silky smooth texture with a hint of avocado flavor and slightly smoky aroma from the palm sugar syrup will surely impress your guest.
Coconut milk and avocado give a lovely tropical flavor and also add extra creaminess to this panna cotta. This is the perfect dessert to make if you want to impress your guests.
I put my panna cotta in molds and then take them out before serving because I like the way they look, but sometimes I like to put them in pretty glasses or ramekins and just eat them with a spoon.
