  • 1 cup of coconut milk creamer, cream, or half-and-half

  • Combine the almond milk, coconut milk creamer, sugar, and vanilla extract in a pot. Sprinkle over the package of gelatin and let sit for five minutes to allow the gelatin to “bloom”.
  • Turn the heat to medium and allow the mixture to come to a simmer, just before boiling, stirring. You’ll see movement just below the surface and bubbles around the side of the pot and the sugar had dissolved.
  • Take the pot off the heat and pour into ramekins or whatever you’re going to serve the dessert in.
  • Place in the fridge for two to four hours, or until completely set.
  • Once the pannacotta is set, add the sparkling apple cider to a pot and pour gelatin over the top. Let it, too, sit for five minutes.
  • Heat the cider and the gelatin over medium heat, stirring, until it comes to a simmer, just before boiling.
  • Allow the mixture to cool for fifteen minutes, then pour over the pannacotta.
  • Place into the fridge to set for two to four hours, or until set.
