SERVES: 2

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 x 300g pack organic silken tofu
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 tsp Norbu*
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (optional)*
Garnish
  • 2 fresh strawberries
  • 1 tsp maple flakes

METHOD:

  1. With a sharp knife, cut down the length of the vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds.
  2. Add these to a blender along with the Norbu, tofu and xanthan gum (if using).
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Serve between two small pudding pots and chill for 1 hour.
  5. Garnish with strawberries and maple flakes, then enjoy!

 

Tips:

*Xanthan gum is available from health food stores. It is a tasteless thickener that can be added to baked goods, milkshakes and ice creams. Here it gives the Panna Cotta a more traditional pot-set texture, but you can omit if desired.

*Norbu is an a zero-calorie natural sweetener made from Monk Fruit. It’s been used for hundreds of years as a sugar substitute by the ancients. If you can’t get your hands on any, try stevia (I like Natvia) or a little raw honey instead.
