Choose the amount of caffeine-free coffee substitute you want to put in your pana cotta to adjust intensity, and enjoy this luxury dessert.
- 1 tsp Kaffree Roma (add more if you like an intense flavor)
- 250 ml coconut milk (can also use almond/soy milk)
- 125 ml coconut cream
- 1 tbsp sugar/agave syrup
- 1/2 tsp agar-agar powder
- 2 oz. dark chocolate, cut into chunks
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 oz. chocolate chips/chocolate curls
Start with preparing the dark chocolate pana cotta. In a saucepan, heat coconut milk, coconut cream and all the other ingredients (except agar-agar) on medium heat till everything is well combined.
Now add in the agar-agar powder and whisk till well combined. Remove the chocolate mix from heat and let it cool down a bit.
Place the dessert glasses in a stand at a slant and gently pour the chocolate mix. Let it sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to set.
Once the chocolate pana cotta has set, repeat the above process to make the kaffree pana cotta mix.
Gently pour the Kaffree Roma pana cotta on top of the set chocolate pana cotta layer and let it set in the refrigerator again.
To serve, garnish with chocolate and dust with cocoa powder.
