Golden Oreo Panna Cotta

Panna cotta is so easy to make - and adding Golden Oreos give a lovely rich biscuity-vanilla flavour. This recipe isn't very traditional at all. I swap cream for Greek Yoghurt which makes it much lighter. Served with some fresh berries and crushed Oreos gives a lovely range of textures and flavours. It also looks so cute served in a jam jar.

A little note about gelatine - there's nothing scary about it at all. Dr. Oetker sell 3 x 12g sachets of powdered gelatine for 99p in the baking aisle of the supermarket. You only need 6g or half a sachet for this recipe. Ignore that the sachet says 12g sets 550ml of liquid, you'll end up slicing it. 6g is more than enough.

Golden Oreo Panna Cotta

  • Time:15 minutes plus chilling time
  • Cost: 45p per serving
  • Calories: 289 per serving
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 10 Golden Oreo Cookies 
  • 400ml whole milk
  • 6g gelatine powder (see note above)
  • 300g Greek Yoghurt
  • 1-2 tsp caster sugar (optional)
  • To garnish: fresh berries and extra Golden Oreos, crushed

Method

  1. Put the 10 Golden Oreos in a bowl and pour over 300ml of the milk.
  2. Meanwhile, put the remaining 100ml of milk in a saucepan over a medium heat and warm it a little. Sprinkle over the gelatine and whisk over the hob until it's dissolved.
  3. Turn the heat low and add the milk and oreo mixture. Whisk everything really well together until the oreos have dissolved. Removed from the heat before the mixture starts to thicken (if it does thicken, remove from the heat immediately add a tiny splash more milk).
  4. Add the Greek yoghurt to the pan (not over the heat) and whisk until everything is well combined. Have a little taste and add a little extra sugar to taste (I didn't think it needed it).
  5. Pour the panna cotta mixture into four clean jam jars or glasses. Leave to cool before covering with clingflim and placing in the fridge until set. This will take up to 8 hours.
  6. Before serving decorate with fresh berries and a few crushed Golden Oreos.
