Summer panna cotta recipe

1 hour 30 mins

This delicious strawberry panna cotta recipe from at-home nutrition and recipe app, Wholesome World, is ideal for a summer’s day in the garden, or to end a celebratory meal.

Strawberries are the superfood of summer. These juicy fruits are bursting with skin-boosting vitamin C and healthy antioxidants to help us look and feel our best. They’re an excellent wellbeing addition to a tempting panna cotta.

The great thing about the summer is that home-grown punnets pile high in every greengrocer. Local fruits that grow in their own season tend to contain fewer chemical residues than those flown in from afar. When buying, look for the plumpest, firmest, brightest fruit with their dark green stalks still on.
