Recipe by Lizzie Rodriquez

from most recent book. Haven't tried. A traditional chilled italian dessert, panna cotta means literally, "cooked cream." Our version iuses low fat yogurt and fat free half and half for a lighter take on the classic. If you like a stronger coffee flavor, use instant espresso powder in place of the coffee powder. Time doe not include chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly coat 4 (6 ounce) custard cups with cooking spray.
  2. Line a strainer with paper towels and set over a large bowl. Put yogurt into the strainer and let sit for 15 to 20 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over half and half; let stand for 10 minutes. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium low heat and cook, whisking constantly, until gelatin dissolves. Add sugar substitute, coffee powder, and vanilla; continue whisking until sugar substitute dissolves. Remove from heat.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, scrape yogurt into a large bowl. Immediately add half and half mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Divde mixture evenly among prepared custard cups. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or overnight. Serve chilled.
