Matcha Panna Cotta #InspiredbyNature #TastyParTEA #Sponsor

This morning I am wrapping up the #TastyParTEA online event. You can read all the details - meet the other bloggers, view our posting schedule, and enter the giveaway - at my kick-off post. We have seen some amazing tea-filled recipes thanks to some talented, creative food bloggers. Stay tuned for my round-up where you can go to see all of the recipes together.

A few notes about matcha green tea. Matcha is "powdered tea." Unlike drinking other tea when you infuse the tea leaves in water and, then, strain out the leaves, with matcha, you are drinking the finely powdered leaves whisked into hot water. So, spring for the best quality of matcha that you can. There's culinary grade and ceremonial grade. I use ceremonial grade if I'm whisking and drinking; I use culinary grade for baking and cooking.

Ingredients makes eight 2-ounce servings
  • 1 envelope gelatin
  • 1/4 C cold water
  • 1-3/4 C organic heavy cream
  • 1/4 C organic whole milk
  • 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 3 T matcha green tea powder*
*You can reduce the amount of matcha - and then reduce the sugar - if you don't want it, or need it, to be a vibrant green.

Dissolve the gelatin in cold water in a medium mixing bowl.

Place all the other ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat till it begins to steam. Do not let it boil. Whisk until smooth. Let cool for 10 minutes, then pour the warm cream into the gelatin and stir till completely dissolved. 

Pour the mixture into your serving containers, leaving a little bit of space at the top - in case you want to top it with any sauce or whipped cream. 

Let chill until set, but at least four hours. Serve cold.

I skipped any adornments and just served it plain. It was creamy with just the right amount of sweet and bitter. Oh, it was lovely!
