Green-tea Panna cotta ;

it feels like its been forever since my latest blog entry,
ive been so caught up with friends, movies &  work, i guess i either got too tried or lazy to write a blog entry. (im sure you've all gone through a point like that, one time or another.)
Anyway! im glad to be back with a delicious new recipe; Green-tea Panna cotta !
it took me about 2 tries to get it right, the first batch came out too watery / creamy, when it was suppose to have a similar consistency to mousse or like flan .. ? i realized my mistake on that was the lack of gelatin. i was reading a basic recipe for "pannacotta" online, and it said to add 1 1/2 tbs of gelatin, but when it didnt "gel" i looked at my package of gelatin & i guess it just needed more.
On my box package it said 1 packet of gelatin for 1 cup of liquid. *facepalm*. i should of read the box first. 
My mistake; it happens !
Anyway, although i didnt add 1 whole package to the cream, (because i wasnt looking for a Jell-o consistency); i added half for each cup, and it came out wonderfully, so just remember to READ the PACKAGE first before using! haha.


Now before i post the pictures, i want to say... 
i LOVELOVELOVE anything thats GREEN TEA FLAVORED !
whether its just plain tea itself, ice cream, mochi, cakes, cookies, whip cream, custard, green-tea infused drinks; such as boba/tapioca drinks.
(i always get the Passion-fruit Green-tea's in tea stores) yum yum!
i recommend heading over to your nearest asian store RIGHT NOW and buy green tea mochi icecream !
Actually, ive seen them selling these in local American markets as well, theyre getting very popular~
so give that a try the next time youre in the freezer section of your nearest grocery store!
they come in a variety of flavors; vanilla, chocolate (yummy), strawberry, & green-tea (my favorite).


Is anyone else a die-hard fan of certain flavors?
Chocolate-addicts perharps?


Honey Vanilla Panna cotta w/ Green-tea Topping
Recipe ;
Pannacotta
- 3 cups whipping cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup Honey
- unflavored gelatin
Topping
- 1/4 cup honey or sugar
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 2 tbs green tea powder
- whip cream (optional)
- raspberries (optional)
For the Pannacotta portion; 
Combine the cream, vanilla, salt, & honey in a
large pan, heat on low heat until warm, then
add gelatin (according to box instructions, i used
1/2 a serving package, others might require a few tbs).
Mix thoroughly until gelatin is completely dissolved. 
pour into individual serving cups or bowl & refrigerate,
until "gelled".
For the Topping ;
In a mixing bowl, combine first 3 ingredients &
whip until fluffy. (the end result should be slightly
bitter from the tea, yet sweet from the cream & honey.)
Add a large spoonful of topping onto each serving cup,
add a dollop of whip cream, & top off with a raspberry.
ENJOY !
A Perfect Single Serving
isnt it pretty?
