Have you tried panna cotta before? It´s jello made out of whipping cream, and as you can imagine, the cream makes this dessert creamy, silky soft, and just melts in your mouth. The flavors of this panna cotta are orange and raspberry. It's a combination that reminds me of the white chocolate raspberry pie recipe, which is in this blog. One of my favorite desserts for sure!
Thinking that not everyone has access to fresh or frozen raspberries, I decided to make it with jam, and used some orange zest. You have the option of straining all this after heating them up with the cream or you can just leave it like that and it will add some texture to this silky dessert. It's your decision!
Don´t you think the colors look good for Valentine's Day? This raspberry orange panna cotta serves 2, if you use the strainer, otherwise you´ll get, 2 and a half serving.
