Mixed berry and Mango – Panna cotta/Mousse: Vegan

Mango Choclate


Panna cotta is an Italian classic and simple dessert. It is made by simmering together cream, milk and sugar mixing with gelatin and letting it to set. Here I veganised by using coconut milk and replaced sugar with honey and to make it vegetarian friendly used agar- agar(Chinese grass) instead of gelatin.

This is deliciously light and creamy mango layer blends perfectly with berry compote. You can alter the layer according to preference. If setting two layer is tedious just skip agar-agar and  top mango panna cotta with berry sauce and enjoy .

Serves: 3-4
Preparation time: 10mins
Cooking time: 20mins


For Mango layer:

  • Mango pulp-1cup
  • Coconut milk-1cup
  • Stevia/honey-2tbsp
  • Agar-Agar-1/2tbsp

For Berry layer:

  • Fresh berries-1cup
  • Stevia/honey-1/4tbsp
  • Agar-Agar-1/2tbsp


Mango layer:

  • Mix agar- agar in a small bowl with 1/4cup warm water until dissolved
  • In a small saucepan, combine coconut milk, honey and Mango pulp mix well and bring to boil for about a minute.
  • Pour soaked agar- agar to mango mixture stir to combine.
  • Divide mango mixture evenly into3-4 serving container and refrigerate to set for 3-4hours.Start the process for second layer once Mango layer is fully set.

Berry layer:

  • Soak agar-agar in the 1/4cup warm water until dissolved.
  • In a small saucepan put the berries, honey and add 1/4cup water and cook it on a low flame by simmering it
