 A relative of yogurt, kefir is more like a smoothie or milkshake. Topped with strawberries, this creamy-dreamy dessert is just perfect.

  • 3 tablespoons
  • 2 teaspoons
    unflavored powdered gelatin
  • 1 1/4 cups
    whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons
    granulated sugar
  • 2 cups
    low-fat strawberry kefir, or your favorite flavor
  • 3/4 teaspoon
    vanilla extract
  • for garnish 
    fresh fruit and mint leaves
  1. Pour 3 tablespoons water into a small custard cup and sprinkle gelatin over it. Let stand until gelatin softens for about 10 minutes.
  2. Combine whipping cream and sugar in heavy medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture is hot; don’t boil it. Remove from heat; stir in gelatin mixture until completely dissolved and mixture is smooth. Cool mixture to room temperature, about 45 minutes.
  3. Stir kefir and vanilla extract into cream mixture. Pour mixture through a fine strainer into a large 4-cup measuring cup. Divide mixture among six (3/4-cup) custard cups or ramekins. Refrigerate until panna cotta is set, at least 6 hours or up to 1 day.
  4. You can eat the panna cotta right out of the ramekins or unmold them. To unmold, run a thin knife around the sides of each panna cotta. Then, one at at time, place bottom of each ramekin in a bowl that has 1-inch of hot water in it. After about 45 seconds, remove the ramekin from the bowl of water. Place a plate over the ramekin and invert. Then, while holding tightly onto the custard cup and plate together, give it one strong shake. The custard should then release and settle onto the plate. Garnish with fresh fruit and mint leaves, if you like.
