Panna Cotta Shooters

Well last month I couldn't blog my recipes due to personal problems. I had opted for 4th of July dishes in the last marathon and had prepared some recipes for the same. But unfortunately could not post it. So I am making use of some of the recipes for this week's theme - No Bake Desserts!

On July 4, 1776, the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. So basically the way we make tri-color dishes for our independence or republic day, we have to make dishes which represents the colors in the US flag. Now the US flag has many stars, and the prominent colors are white, red and blue. In our cuisine, we can easily make recipes with natural colors for red and white. But its very difficult to find a natural color source for blue. So the recipe here I have is with artificial coloring agent.

I adapted the recipe from here.


Coconut Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 6 tbsp
Powdered gelatin - 2 tsp
Water - 6 cups
Coloring agent - Red, blue


  • In a small cup sprinkle powdered gelatin over the cold water and let it stand until absorbed.
  • Combine the coconut milk and 2 tbsp sugar in a saucepan. Heat the mixture until just boiling.
  • Combine the remaining water and the remaining sugar. Heat the mixture until just boiling.
  • Split the water mixture into 2. Add red color in one half and blue color in the other half. Mix well and keep aside.
  • Microwave the gelatin mixture for 10-15 seconds, until melted and liquid.
  • Add this melted gelatin in all the 3 liquids - red water mixture, blue water mixture and coconut milk mixture. Allow the mixtures to cool to room temperature.
  • Arrange 6 glasses. Add 1/4th with the blue mixture. Freeze this for about 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, remove the glasses. Now add the coconut milk mixture until the glass is filled 3/4th.
  • Refrigerate the glasses until the panna cotta mixture is set (another 1 hour).
  • Now add the red water mixture as the top layer. 

Easy and interesting dessert is ready.
