This summer is really strange, with this uncertain weather you always do not know if it will be sunny or cloudy. Under these conditions, if you want to invite some friends to dinner, which menu do you choose to offer?
At the end, you close the dinner in laughter, embraced by the last rays of the sunny light filtering through the curtains, with a classic and simple dessert, made in a vegan way. This is an italian dessert that can satisfy everyone (even the cats that steal the blueberries from the table), but you are supposed to like coconut, of course!
Biancomangiare or pannacotta?
I was in doubt about the name of this dessert and, therefore, I tried to read up and found that the Biancomangiare (blanc-manger is its french name) is a sicilian preparation from the Middle Ages, based on the use of almonds, that the classic recipe of Pannacotta does not include.
I served it with blueberries, but you can choose the topping ingredient you like the most!
400 gr canned coconut milk
100 gr of soy milk
2 gr agar agar (1 + 1/2 teaspoon)
80 gr sugar
20 minutes preparation + at least 2 hours in the fridge
Kilokalories per serving:
Degree of Difficulty:
Weigh the agar agar with precision and melt it in the vegetable milk at room temperature, stirring well, preferably with a whisk.
Add the coconut milk after having shaken the can, you have to mix the fat part with the liquid one, and then add also the sugar to the mixture.
Pour into a saucepan and place on the stove over medium-low flame.
Since the boil, wait for 3 minutes, stirring constantly, and then pour into the cups you have chosen for serving.
Let the cups cool to room temperature and then place them in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Wait for the magic … trying not to open the fridge door too often!
We have eaten them with a handful of fresh blueberries, just to balance the sweet taste of this simple dessert.
