A fine dessert without much sugar is not so difficult to find. For example, the popular Italian panna cotta can also be prepared well with sugar-free lucuma powder. And if you prefer a vegan panna cotta, you can choose agar agar, an algae-based gelling agent, to achieve the desired creamy consistency.
This pudding-like dessert usually consists of cream, sugar and gelatin. Vegan, however, it can be prepared just as well with any vegetable milk. Traditionally, usually only the cream is boiled and reduced, hence the name 'Panna Cotta'. This fine dessert was enjoyed as early as the 10th century and over the centuries more and more flavoring ingredients such as vanilla, chocolate or nuts and fruits were found as accompanying partners.
