Healthy Breakfast Panna Cotta: Recipe

Yes, that’s right, panna cotta for breakfast… that’s also healthy!

So many times when trying to lower the calorie content of a dish that’s normally high in calories, flavour is one of the things that’s sacrificed. This breakfast panna cotta recipe however manages to be low in fat and sugar but high in flavour. We have used milk and natural yoghurt instead of cream, a sprinkle of honey instead of sugar and spices like cinnamon and vanilla to give the panna cotta depth in flavour. The topping of oats and almonds adds some texture to finish off this well balanced delight.
