Servings 6


  • 500 ml fresh heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 leaves gelatine (or 2g of agar agar)
  • 1 vanilla pod (Or vanilla extract)
  • 2 medium mangos
  • 2 teaspoons Brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • Fresh mint leaves for decoration


Prepare the panna cotta

  • Soak the gelatine leaves in a bowl of cold water and set aside for 10 minutes. Note: In case you are using the agar agar powder, mix it well with 3 tablespoons of the cream, then add it to the mixture before heating it.
  • In a large pan, pour the cream, sugar, and vanilla. If you are using a vanilla pod, open it from one side using a knife and try to extract all its seeds. Then add both the seeds and the pod to the cream.
  • Gently heat the mixture, keep whisking well to dissolve sugar.

  • Remove the vanilla pod, leave until the mixture becomes warm, then carefully put the pannacotta in some ramekins, glasses or jam jars based on your preferences. Cover the ramekins or the glasses with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
