Get ready for warmer weather with this light and creamy coconut vanilla bean panna cotta with a refreshingly sweet drizzle of mango coulis on top.
This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
For a dessert made with heavy cream, coconut cream, sugar, and gelatin, this coconut vanilla bean panna cotta is surprisingly light. Even without the refreshing mint, tangy ginger oat grahams, or sweet mango coulis you would think this dessert wasn’t quite an indulgent as some others. And sure you could definitely enjoy this without all the garnishes, but use them if you’ve got ’em right?
Don’t let the fancy sounding word “coulis” fool you, it’s just a pureed fruit (or vegetable) sauce, but dang if it isn’t good. Just a drizzle of that, a sprig or fresh rosemary, and the crunchy goodness of the oat grahams, add not only flavor but different textures to the dish.
As an added bonus, both the panna cotta and mango coulis can be made in advance. Heck it’s required because you have to chill for at least 6 hours in order for the panna cotta to set. So make it a day or two before you need it and then impress your guests when you unveil it.
This recipe was made with ingredients thanks to Dixie Crystals granulated pure cane sugar, Melissa’s Produce mangoes and fresh mint, Nairn’s ginger oat grahams, and Taylor & Colledge vanilla bean paste.

- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or seeds from 1 bean)
- 2 tsp unflavored gelatin
- 1 cup coconut cream
- Fresh mint, for garnish
- Ginger oat grahams, for garnish
- 2 cups cubed fresh mango
- 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
- Place the cream in a saucepan. Add the sugar and vanilla, and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
- Sprinkle the gelatin over the coconut cream in a bowl and let stand until the gelatin softens, about 5 minutes. Stir the gelatin mixture into the hot cream mixture until dissolved. Divide among eight 4 oz. ramekins, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, at least 6 hours or overnight.
- Before serving, prepare mango coulis by pureeing the mango with sugar until smooth. If too thick, add a teaspoon of water at a time, using just enough to make pourable.
- Dip each ramekin three-quarters of the way in warm water and invert onto a plate. Garnish each panna cotta with a drizzle of dollop of mango coulis, mint, and oat grahams, if desired.
