Matcha Panna Cotta


This matcha green tea panna cotta is such a delightful dessert!  It’s smooth, creamy, and so delicate tasting you might forget you made this in your own home!

Since my lifestyle change, I’m always – and I mean always – in search of low-carb/keto desserts! It’s almost an obsession that I might have to seek therapy out for!

What is panna cotta you might ask?

It is essentially a basic pudding made up of sweetened cream and gelatin. 

The combination gives the dessert a rich and creamy texture that lives up to its fancy sounding name (although it really just means “cooked cream” in Italian).

Anyway, one day I came across a panna cotta recipe and I thought, “I can make this low-carb/keto.”

So after a few test batches, I came up with this incredibly rich, smooth and tasty green tea Matcha Panna Cotta made with organic Japanese Matcha powder. 

For those who are unfamiliar with Matcha, it is finely ground powder from green tea leaves that are specially grown in the shade which produces more theanine and caffeine. 

Some health benefits of Matcha include promoting relaxation, reducing stress and improving sleep, as well as boosting concentration and alertness.

Now back to the dessert, it’s very easy to make and whips up in less than 10 minutes. 

So, if you’re a sweet tooth like me, go treat yourself and make this rich and creamy Italian dessert.

Now, let’s get started!

    I’m so thrilled I came across your website this morning! I’ve been missing Asian food, especially Japanese, ever since I decided to go low carb/ Keto 4 months ago.

      So glad you found us!! That’s exactly why we started this website! We never could find any keto/low carb Asian recipes, so we just decided to make our own recipes/website!! We still have plenty of recipes to get to, so make sure you check back often!!
