COCONUT YOGHURT PANNA COTTA WITH PASSION FRUIT
Passion fruit is in season in December and the contrast of the tropical fruit notes with the coconut yoghurt is a perfect match. It’s a great dessert for a summery day that will leave you feeling refreshed after a day of sunshine, good wine and great company.

2.5ml (½ tsp) vanilla bean paste
250ml (1 cup) coconut yoghurt
