Fast Five! - Jennifer Costa

Almond Milk Panna Cotta - goes with any fruit

Almond Milk Heavy Cream
1 Vanilla Bean (scraped)
Fruit of your choice

Heat the heavy cream with the scraped vanilla bean for 1 hour 
Take some almond milk, bloom an envelope of gelatin
Put all elements back in the pan with some sugar, melt it down, and then pour the mix into small dishes (ramekins should work well)

You may serve this with any fruit you like! 

Fruit Suggestions: 
Heat up some pears and apples with cinnamon and sugar, serve hot alongside panna cotta - yum!

Great with white wine or sparkling!
