Lychee panna cotta is a creamy dessert with a delectable fruity taste. The hint of flavor from the lychees is simply divine. It tastes just right, but you may drizzle it with honey if desired. If you want more texture, you may add chopped lychees into the panna cotta mixture.
1 can lychees, drained and juice reserved
1/2 cup fresh milk
2 cups whipped cream
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup lychee syrup
Chopped lychee for garnish
Place the canned lychees in a food processor or blender. Puree them for 1-2 minutes or until smooth.
Next, heat the milk in a small pan over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until it is very hot but not boiling. Stir in the cream and sugar. Cook it for another 2 minutes. Stir occasionally. Pour the lychee puree into the milk mixture. Mix well.
Put the reserved lychee syrup in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Add the gelatin mixture and stir until it is dissolved. Â Fold in the lychee and milk mixture. Stir until well combined.
Pour the panna cotta mixture into molds or cups. Chill it for an hour or until it sets. Remove it from the molds and plate it or serve in cups. Top it with chopped lychees before serving. Serve chilled.
