Step 1

To Prepare the Panna Cotta:
In a heat proof bowl, dissolve gelatin and 1/4 cup milk, set aside and let it rest for 5 minutes.

Step 2

In the blender, process strawberries, remaining 1 cup of milk, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract and lemon juice until smooth. Pour through a fine sieve into a large bowl, discard any solids.

Step 3

Heat the gelatin mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds until liquid-fied.
Whisk the gelatin mixture into strawberry puree until well combined. Evenly pour into molds or serving cups.
Chill for at least 8 hours, or preferable overnight.

Step 4

To unmold, dip molds in a small bowl of hot water 5 to 10 seconds, then invert panna cottas onto dessert plates and remove molds. Serve with macerated strawberries.

Step 5

To Prepare the the Macerated Strawberry:
In a medium bowl, gently toss strawberry slices with lemon juice and sugar. Let mixture steep in room temperature for 15 minutes.


If the panna cotta doesn't fall onto your dessert plate easily, dip the ramekin in the hot water for a few more seconds and repeat the steps. The length of time needed depends on the temperature of your water. The hotter the water, the less time is needed.
