Marigold Petal and Matcha Panna Cotta
I love the color of matcha. And, when I was looking for an easy, dairy dessert that didn't need chocolate because I used all of the chocolate in the house for R's birthday cake. Really. But I didn't want a plain white panna cotta, so I decided to color my panna cotta with matcha. I also had some organic marigold blossoms and thought I'd infuse the cream with some of the petals.

I don't know why I put the egg on that small tray. There are no eggs in this recipe! Just wanted to clarify in case you were confused by my photo. I'm confused, too. Sorry...

Ingredients makes eight 2-ounce servings
  • 1 envelope gelatin
  • 2 C organic heavy whipping cream + more for garnish
  • 1/4 C cold water
  • 2 T marigold petals + more for garnish
  • 2 t matcha green tea powder
  • 1/4 C organic granulated sugar

Pour heavy cream into a medium sauce pan and heat until bubbles begin to form along the edges of the pan. Add the marigold petals and let steep for at least thirty minutes. Strain out the petals and set cream aside. 

Pour the milk into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the surface. Let bloom for 5 minutes.

Heat the infused cream until it begins to steam. Do not let it boil. Add in the matcha powder and sugar. Whisk until smooth. Pour the mixture over the gelatin and stir until completely dissolved.

Pour the mixture into your serving containers, leaving a little bit of space at the top. Let chill until set, but at least four hours. Serve cold. Just before serving, whip cream into soft peaks. Place a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream on top of the panna cotta and garnish with a few petals. Serve immediately.


  1. I've always wanted to cook with marigolds and never done it yet. It looks delicious!

  2. I've always wanted to make panna cotta and have yet to! Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. What a unique flavor profile. You are definitely the matcha queen.

  4. Vitamin B1, C, and caffeine in green tea can promote gastric secretion and help digestion and fat elimination. The catechins in green tea have the effects of anti-oxidation, increase metabolism, and scavenge free radicals. It can activate protein kinase and triglyceride lipase through many actions to reduce the accumulation of fat cells, thus achieving weight loss. Therefore, drinking green tea often can achieve the effect of accelerating fat consumption and strengthening healthy weight loss.
