The vanilla, coconut and cardamom flavours in this delicious panna cotta marry together beautifully with a drizzle of mango puree. A truly delightful light dessert that will wow your friends and family.    


  1. Lightly crush 12 cardamom pods with the flat side of a large knife to split the seeds. Gently scrape out the seeds and discard the pods.

    • 12 Cardamom Pods (Green)
  2. Using a pestle and mortar crush up the seeds until powdery.

  3. Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for 5 minutes.

    • 3 Gelatine Leaves
  4. Add the crushed seeds with cream, sugar, coconut milk, milk and vanilla bean paste to a large saucepan, whisking gently to avoid any lumps.

    • 150ml Double Cream
    • 75g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar (We love Billington's)
    • 200ml Coconut Milk
    • 200ml Whole Milk
    • 2 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste (We love Nielsen Massey)
  5. Heat the cream to a simmer then remove from the hob.

  6. Squeeze any remaining water from the gelatine leaves and add to the mix. Allow to dissolve.

  7. Once the gelatine is fully dissolved, pour the mixture into 4 ramekins.

  8. Leave to cool, then chill for 3-4 hours or until set.

  9. To prepare the mango puree slice up the flesh of two mangos.

    • 2 Mango
  10. Keep aside a few chunks for added texture when serving. Blend the remaining mango to make a smooth puree. Serve alongside the panacotta or drizzled on top.
