Strawberry season is here! And I am celebrating with this light, creamy, and beautiful dessert: Dairy Free Strawberry Panna Cotta.
Nothing makes me happier than a basket of sweet strawberries on a warm sunny day. We are blessed to live in Northern California where we get some of the best, organic strawberries in the world.
I grew up in Finland where the growing season is very short. But the berries in Finland in the summer are like nothing you have ever tasted. I grew up eating fresh strawberries and blueberries picked from the forest. My grandmother grew the biggest raspberries in her back yard. I can still remember placing them on the fingers of both hands before eating them.
Now that I am a mama, I get to relive the joys of summer berries with my Little One. And that means a weekly run to our local organic berry farm where we get the sweetest, most beautiful strawberries. We are still waiting for the strawberries in our backyard to start producing.
And what goes better with strawberries than a little sweet cream? Here’s my ode to the sweet summer strawberry: Dairy Free Strawberry Panna Cotta
Panna Cotta literally means cooked cream in Italian. There are many ways to make it, but the easiest way I have found is to simply heat some creamy coconut milk , adding some gelatin and sweetener, and letting it cool until set.
I’ve shared my recipe for Lemon Panna Cotta before. It’s definitely a family favorite. Strawberry Panna Cotta is a bit easier as I don’t even bother trying to slide the panna cotta out of the custard cup and onto a plate. I like the layered look of the jam and the creamy filling in the glass cup.
Panna cotta is a nice change from overly sweet desserts. This light and delicate treat is perfect for your summer gatherings. It’s creamy and delicious, and you get a wonderful strawberry chia jam surprise when you dig in with your spoon.
Strawberry Panna Cotta (dairy free)
FOR STRAWBERRY CHIA JAM
1/2 pint of fresh strawberries fresh strawberries, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
1-2 tbsp maple syrup
a pinch of sea salt
FOR PANNA COTTA:
2 tbsp water
1 can full fat coconut milk (I use THIS BPA-free brand)
2 TBS maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
extra strawberries for garnish
Everyone knows green smoothies are healthy, right? However…
Have you heard of a “red” smoothie? If not, check out this true story…
- FOR STRAWBERRY CHIA JAM: Combine strawberries, maple syrup and salt in a small saucepan and set over medium heat. Once the strawberries begin to “sweat” and give off some liquid, add the chia seeds. Bring to a boil, then turn down to low. Allow to simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon 3 tablespoons of jam into your 4 glass custard cups and allow to cool for 10 minutes then place in the fridge to cool completely.
- FOR PANNA COTTA: Pour 2 tablespoons of water into a small bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over the water and allow to bloom for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, gently heat coconut milk in a small pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When the coconut milk is steaming hot (but not boiling), remove from heat and add gelatin/water mixture. Whisk until gelatin is completely dissolved. Whisk in sweetener of choice and vanilla.
- Remove strawberry-filled cups from fridge and divide coconut mixture evenly among the 4 cups. Place into fridge to set- for at least 4 hours.
- Remove from fridge and garnish with fresh strawberries. Enjoy!
NOTE: You will end up with more Strawberry Chia Jam than you need for this recipe. Feel free to serve the leftovers on top of the panna cotta.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.
Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.
Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
