Yogurt Honey Panna Cotta with a Berry Heart

A show stopping dessert that is delicious but also healthy


I am having some mixed feelings about Valentine´s Day this year.. It feels like there are so many people online who are going on a mission to paint this day black. I do understand their point with "there should not be one day in a year where you express your love and affection to the person you love". It is true, there should not. But who said that, that is what Valentine´s Day is about? 

Despite all of this negativity, I still think Valentine´s Day is a good day. I like these kind of special days, whether it is Mothers Day, Fathers Day or Valentine´s Day. I think they are great, because sometimes in this busy world we can get a bit carried away and maybe forget some things that are important. And then these days remind us of that and maybe after them we will remember those things that are important more often during the rest of the year. 

So, whatever your take on Valentine´s Day is, I hope you will have a lovely day and don´t forget that smile :) Smiles are magical and they can do wonders, both to those carrying them and those receiving them :)

This dessert is light and fruity, creamy even without the addition of cream and sweet without any artificial sugar (if you do as I did and add no sugar to the berries). It is a dessert you don´t have to feel bad about and a dessert that you can make your own by adding your favorite berries and fruits on top.

Whether it is for Valentine´s Day, for a Birthday or just to make a regular Tuesday night a bit more special, I hope you will enjoy this light Yogurt Honey Panna Cotta with a Berry Heart :)

Yogurt Honey Panna Cotta

With a Berry Heart


  • 130g frozen berries (strawberries, raspberries, cherries)

  • 4g agar agar

  • 10-20g sugar (optional)

  • 300g yogurt

  • 50g honey

  • 1tsp vanilla paste

  • 200ml milk

  • 15g agar agar

  • fresh berries

  • edible rose petals & buds


  1. Defrost the berries in a small pot over medium heat. If using sugar add also sugar at this point.

  2. Once the berries have defrosted add agar agar while mixing and continue cooking for about two minutes until the agar agar has dissolved completely.

  3. Remove from heat and portion into heart shaped silicone cupcake molds. Allow to set in the fridge for at least 4-5 hours, preferably overnight.

  4. After the hearts have set, remove them carefully from the molds by pulling the sides of the mold lightly. Place the berry hearts into medium bowls.

  5. To make the yogurt honey panna cotta, mix yogurt shortly to make it smooth. Add honey and vanilla and mix again until combined.

  6. Heat milk with agar agar in a small pot for about two minutes until the agar agar has dissolved. Mix constantly while heating so that no lumps of agar agar are left in the milk.

  7. Add the milk and agar agar mix to the yogurt while mixing and then pour the yogurt honey panna cotta mix into the bowls with the berry hearts, carefully so that the hearts stay clean in the middle. Tap the bowls a couple of times against the table to allow the panna cotta to even out. (See video)

  8. Allow to set for another 4-5 hours in the fridge.

  9. Decorate with fresh berries and edible rose petals and buds before serving.
