How to Make Delicious SCD Diet Yogurt Panna Cotta


Are you following the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) and looking for a delightful dessert that fits your dietary needs? Look no further! Today, I’m sharing my favorite recipe for SCD Diet Yogurt Panna Cotta, a creamy, luscious treat that’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Did you know you can make panna cotta with yogurt? I didn’t either until I saw Jeffrey Mauro make a Greek yogurt panna cotta on The Food Network Show, “The Kitchen.” Inspired by his recipe, I decided to create my own version using SCD yogurt and coconut milk instead of heavy cream. After years of making my own yogurt, incorporating it into this dessert felt like the perfect fit.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • 2 cups of plain SCD yogurt
  • 1 1/4 cups of full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of plain gelatin
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Why Choose SCD Diet Yogurt Panna Cotta?



Making desserts on the SCD diet can be a challenge, but this Yogurt Panna Cotta is not only compliant but also incredibly delicious. The use of SCD yogurt ensures that the dessert is gut-friendly and fits seamlessly into your dietary regimen.

Step-by-Step Guide to Making SCD Diet Yogurt Panna Cotta

Step 1: Preparing the Yogurt Mixture

Start by combining your yogurt and half a cup of coconut milk in a large bowl. Whisk them together until smooth. This forms the base of your panna cotta and ensures a creamy consistency.

Step 2: Blooming the Gelatin

In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup of coconut milk with the gelatin. Let it sit for about five minutes to allow the gelatin to bloom. This step is crucial for achieving the perfect texture in your panna cotta.

Step 3: Heating the Coconut Milk and Honey

In a saucepan, combine the remaining half cup of coconut milk and the honey. Heat this mixture over low heat until the honey is fully melted and the mixture starts to simmer gently. This should take about two to three minutes.

Step 4: Incorporating Gelatin and Vanilla

Remove the coconut milk and honey mixture from the heat. Whisk in the bloomed gelatin until it is fully dissolved. Add the vanilla extract and stir to combine.

Step 5: Combining Mixtures

Pour the gelatin mixture into the bowl with the yogurt mixture. Whisk until everything is well combined and smooth.

Step 6: Pouring into Ramekins

Divide the mixture evenly among six 4-ounce ramekins. Cover each ramekin with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least four hours, or until set.

Making the Blueberry Topping

Ingredients for Blueberry Topping

  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Combine the blueberries, honey, and lemon juice in a saucepan.
  2. Cook over medium heat until the blueberries start to break down and the mixture thickens, about five to ten minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and let it cool. This topping will thicken further as it cools.

Serving Your Yogurt Panna Cotta

How to Serve

You can serve your panna cotta directly in the ramekins or unmold them onto plates for a more elegant presentation. To unmold, run a butter knife around the edges of the panna cotta and gently invert onto a plate.

Adding the Topping

Top your panna cotta with the blueberry sauce. For an extra touch, you can add some toasted walnuts or fresh fruit. This not only adds flavor but also a delightful crunch.
