Coffee panna cotta with dalgona whip

Posted by

Here is a light dessert for all the coffee lovers. Coffee panna cotta with dalgona whip topped with cream. 

Three layers of delightful creamy texture are pure bliss. The dalgona layer strengthens the coffee flavor. So, you may want to skip it while making for children.  

It was a quick dessert with coffee as we were missing the caffeine in our lives. My day starts with coffee, and during Ramadan, this ritual comes to a stop. So, this dessert post Iftar definitely will cheer up all the coffee lovers. I used regular coffee for the pannacotta and instant coffee for the dalgona whip.  

There is something about the texture of panna cotta that you feel light even after two helpings. The silky-smooth texture and the taste of coffee together make it extraordinary. I love making it for my son in different flavors as it is easy on the tummy. However, I skipped the dalgona layer for his bowl of panna cotta.
