I want to preface this recipe by saying I am by NO means an expert on molecular cooking and yes, while gelatin is really only scraping the tip of the iceberg of cooking science, it’s a hard canvas to cook on.
But we made it! And this Sugar Free Peach Panna Cotta IS SO GOOD! And SO impressive! Plus any time I can cook with peaches, which I always forget about until it’s peach season again, is a great day!
I will say, I did goof on the pan I chose to display it in and I think this recipe works best with miniature cups for presentation sake or if you’re feeling froggy in the summer heat, a spring-form pan would do the trick too!
Sugar Free Peach Panna Cotta
For your ingredients (and this will be in 3 parts):
Part One – Peach Puree
- 16 OZ Frozen Peaches
- 1 Cup Water
- 4 TBSP Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup
Part Two – Gelatin
- 2 Packets Unflavored Gelatin (I used Kroger Brand, 1/4 OZ per Envelope)
- 1/2 Cup Cold Water
Part Three – Pudding
- 1 OZ Package Jell-O Instant Sugar Free Fat Free Vanilla Pudding
- 1 Cup Cold Water
- 1 Cup Cold Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Original Almond Milk
Total Prep Time: 60 Minutes // Total Set Time: 3 Hours
- Take the peaches and add them to a sauce pan over low heat. You will want to stir occasionally until the peaches begin to break down. Once that happens, add 1 cup of water and continue cooking until the majority of the peaches are in smaller pieces.
- Let peaches chill in fridge for ~30 minutes until they are cool enough to blend. Add to blender with 4 TBSP of Vanilla Syrup and blend until smooth then place in fridge.
- Take your gelatin and place in a microwave safe bowl. Add 1/2 cup cold water and stir and let sit for 2 minutes.
- Once the 2 minutes are up, microwave for 45 seconds and then stir again until all gelatin has dissolved then set to the side.
- Add pudding mix powder to a bowl and whisk in cold water then cold almond milk. Whisk generously until all powder has dissolved.
- Finally, mix in gelatin to peach puree and then add pudding. You will want to do this before the pudding has time to set.
- Place in fridge for 2 hours until entire batch congeals and jiggles when shaken.
