This Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries is a new favorite of mine! With the tasty addition of strawberries and blueberries, it also makes a festive red, white and blue dessert for the fourth of July!




  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 4 tbsp powdered gelatin
  • 5 tbsp cold water
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract


  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • additional berries, for topping


1. Divide strawberries and blueberries evenly between eight 8 oz glasses.
2. Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in a medium-sized bowl and let stand 5 to 10 minutes.
3. While gelatin sits, heat the heavy cream, milk and sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Do not boil. Once the sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
4. Pour the milk mixture over the gelatin and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
5. Pour the panna cotta mixture into the prepared cups, dividing it evenly among the cups. Chill them until firm, 3-4 hours.
6. Once firm, make whipped cream. Whip heavy whipping cream until it begins to thicken.
7. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract and whip until stiff peaks form.
8. Top panna cotta with whipped cream and some additional strawberries and blueberries. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
