Cardamom Latte Panna Cotta


Cardamom Panna Cotta- a scrumptious, easy dessert with a hint of coffee flavor – perfect for holiday gatherings. Can be made ahead! Allow 4 hours cooling time.


Units Scale
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 7 whole cardamom pods crushed (or 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom)
  • 12 teaspoons instant coffee (or use instant decaf)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons unflavored powdered gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons water

Serve with Cardamom whipped cream- see notes.


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the cream, sugar, cardamom and instant coffee. Over medium heat, bring the mixture just to a simmer.
  2. Remove from the heat, cover and let steep for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the water and let stand until evenly moistened about 5 minutes.
  4. Uncover the cream mixture and bring just to a simmer over moderately high heat.
  5. Remove from heat, add the gelatin and stir until dissolved. Strain and pour into a pitcher.
  6. Pour the panna cotta mixture into four small 4-ounce ramekins or canning jars and let cool to room temperature.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the panna cotta is set but still jiggly, at least 3 hours or up to 3 days.
  8. Serve in the jars, with a dollop of whip cream and shaved chocolate (both optional).


This can be made ahead- keeps up to 3 days in the fridge (covered).
