Continuing with this week's dessert theme - Coconut Panna Cotta
We had dinner recently with some friends who are allergic to gluten (him) and dairy (her). I made this just like my regular panna cotta but subbed coconut milk for the half and half. It was delicious. I topped it with some mango puree (one really ripe mango whizzed in the blender, which was plenty for 10 servings). It was delicious and a perfect summertime dessert with all the tropical flavors.

Dissolve gelatin in water and stir til well mixed. Set aside to soften. In a saucepan, gently heat the coconut milk and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Remove milk mixture from heat and stir in vanilla and gelatin. Pour into dishes. Refrigerate at least 4 hours until well set. Serve chilled with mango puree or berries.
