Some context on Pana Cotta. Its an Italian  cooked cream in and its a custard  dessert. Theres no eggs in panna cotta, though the custard is made with cream and gelatin.

Very soothing soft and yummy. Add a layer of fruit compote, such as the mango version above, and it's a chill summer dessert. 

You have to make it in advance, minimum 4 hours.

For this mango panna cotta I made some mango glee..which gave a great impact on the dessert.

You can use any fruits you like...

To serve
  1. Run thin sharp knife around sides of each panna cotta to loosen. One at a time, place bottom of each custard cup in 1 inch of hot water 30 to 45 seconds; immediately invert custard cup onto plate. Using both hands, firmly grasp custard cup and plate together, shaking gently and allowing panna cotta to settle onto plate. Spoon fruit mixture around each panna cotta and serve.
