Jessie's Recipe of the Week: Plant-based Strawberry Panna Cotta

When we think of desserts, often times many of them come with dairy and are hard to substitute with oatmilk or other plant-based milk. However, it’s not impossible - there are (arguably better tasting) desserts out there that can be made with oatmilk!

This week, Jessie is bringing to you a spin on the traditional panna cotta recipe by recreating it with our instant powdered oatmilk! This version gives the panna cotta a lighter taste than the traditional Italian version, making it perfect for a small sweet treat even after a heavy dinner! What’s even better is that this recipe makes 15 small cups of panna cotta, so for the next few days, you’ll be set for a sweet treat whenever you’d like one!

Serving size:

15 small panna cotta

What you'll need:


  • Precision scale to weigh agar agar
  • Sauce pan
  • Whisk
  • Glass jar or small cups



    For panna cotta

    1. Mix together Upright instant oatmilk and 1 cup of water

    2. Add all panna cotta ingredients into saucepan and whisk until agar agar is fully dissolved

    3. To active agar agar, on medium heat, bring mixture to a boil and then remove from heat

    4. Repeat step two for 4 times until mixture has been brought to a boil for 4 times

    5. Pour mixture into glass jars or cups, let set in fridge for at least 2 hours

    For strawberry topping

    1. Add fresh strawberries and sugar into saucepan. Let simmer for 5 minutes and add a dash of lemon juice or water if necessary

    2. Blend strawberries in mixer once soft and let cool before pouring over panna cotta to serve
