Chocolate Panna Cotta with Hemp Milk
A light, creamy panna cotta made with hemp milk and raw cacao powder. Served with a dollop of coconut cream and raspberries, this dessert is a great way to finish off a meal with friends.
If you decide to flip the panna cotta out of the mold (for the wow factor!), you can make it easier by loosening the edges first. Just put a little pressure on the panna cotta (with your fingers) and try to make it spin in the cup and then flip it upside down onto a suitably beautiful plate.
