Bloody Eyeball Panna Cotta
One spooky recipe for a bloody eyeball dessert, easy and fun to make! Perfect for Halloween...
- 1 Panna Cotta powder preparation from Plaisance Bio
- 200 ml of semi-skimmed milk
- 200 ml of liquid cream
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1 kiwi
- 2 purple grapes (as dark and round as possible)
1. The kiwi (the iris):
- Begin by peeling and slicing your kiwi. You’ll want 4 very pretty slices, so be gentle and slice smartly!
- Place one slice each in the bottom of 4 medium-sized bowls.
2. The panna cotta (the white of the eye):
- Pour the powder into a saucepan.
- Add 200 ml of milk and complete with 200 ml of liquid cream.
- Mix well.
- Bring to a boil.
- Cook for 1min over low heat, stirring regularly.
- Immediately pour into your bowls on top of the kiwi slices.
- Place in the refrigerator until set.
3. The strawberry sauce (the blood):
- When you’re almost ready to serve, slice your strawberries.
- Place strawberry slices and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.
- Stir periodically for approximately 10 minutes (it’s ok to smash the strawberries a little here to make a little more juicy-juice happen).
- Remove strawberry sauce from heat and allow to cool until you can safely handle it.
- Use a colander or sieve to drain sauce into a bowl, removing strawberry pulp and seeds.
- Place a couple of spoons of the sauce on a plate, then, gently turn-out the panna cotta on top of the sauce, upside-down with the kiwi facing up.
4. The grape (the pupil):
- Slice the grapes in half and place each half on top of the kiwi in the centre to create a dark pupil.
- You can also colour the centre of the kiwi with a drop of black food colouring.
5. It's looking at you! Hurry! Eat it!
