    Ok i tried this yesterday, it tasted horrible. the coconut oil in the recipe was a massive fail. It has overpowering taste and smell of a hair product. I used 100% organic raw coconut oil for cooking. I would be willing to do this with coconut cream once i recover from the shocking taste of this desert.

    • I’m sorry you didn’t like this Zee. If you use coconut cream you’ll need to play with the amount of agar agar you use because the coconut oil helps with the firming up of the dessert.

  • Hi Pamela,

    I found your recipe on a Clean forum and just had to try it as a chocolate sauce. I quartered your recipe as is and it turned out to be super gummy and pudding-like. I’m assuming that’s the texture you want for Panna Cotta, but I’m wondering if you any suggestions for making it more syrupy. Just add less agar agar powder, perhaps?

    Fabulous recipe. I love anything chocolate and Clean!

    • Hi Alyssa,

      Yes, the panna cotta recipe would be a bit on the gloopy side as a chocolate sauce due to the use of the agar agar (which is a vegan substitute for gelatin). For a great, clean friendly chocolate sauce you could mix cocoa with coconut oil. To make it a bit creamier, add some coconut milk or even a bit of almond milk. Experiment with the quantities to get the flavor and consistency you like (kind of depends on what you’re going to be putting the chocolate sauce on). In fact, if you like that Magic Shell stuff that makes the hard chocolate shell on ice cream, just mix cocoa powder with coconut oil and drizzle over ice cream. It hardens pretty much on contact with the cold ice cream.

      p.s. melt the coconut oil before mixing it with the cocoa (and remember…a little goes a long way). :)

      • Hi Pamela – Thank you, thank you! I have been searching for a clean recipe, but haven’t tried using coconut oil – seems like such a no-brainer :)

        I think next go around (which will probably be tonight because I have a gluten-free unfrosted chocolate cake waiting at home!!), I will skip the agar agar and just go with straight coconut oil. The flavor of the oil alone would make a stunning sauce. I am looking forward to figuring out what quantities work for me!

  • I don’t know why I didn’t think of that…my boyfriend never wants to try my “healthy food.” I just shouldn’t tell him what’s in it until after!

    • Yep, I just don’t tell him. If he likes it –fantastic. If he doesn’t, no biggie. He doesn’t even always like the non-healthy stuff.

  • The picture is stunning!! Would love to take a big bite. I don’t tell my hubby when I use almond milk or something different until he’s tasted it. Quite often he likes my version better or he can’t even tell the difference. :)

  • That looks very interesting. What would you recommend in place of the nuts and coconut of people are allergic so simply do not like those flavors?

    September 01, 2009
    • Pamela


      For nut allergies, you could use soy milk in place of the almond milk. That would work just as well. As for the coconut oil….I have not tried this, but you could try using a cold pressed canola oil to make up the chocolate mixture. I would then bump up the amount of Agar Agar powder to 5 teaspoons. (coconut oil firms up dramatically when it’s refrigerated, so you will need some additional gelling agent to help it firm up.)

      If you refrigerate the panna cotta for 2 hours and find that it’s not setting up enough, you can take the containers and put them back into a saucepan. Stir to thoroughly combine and add more agar agar powder. Let sit for 5 minutes, to soften, then re-heat as the recipe indicates. Pour into molds and refrigerate. (That’s one of the benefits of working with agar agar, you can keep re-working it to get to the consistency you want.)

      September 01, 2009
  • That looks amazing and so delicious!

  • That looks very good, I have not tried almond milk yet, but want too, thanks for sharing this post!
