Coconut Panna Cotta with Mixed Berry Compote

Creamy custard-like Coconut Panna Cotta topped with a tart Raspberry Blackberry Compote, it’s one incredible dessert that you won’t feel an ounce guilty eating!

So this week was my first official week working with my husbands company.

They needed a little help in their HR department as well as in their Accounts Payable and luckily I have experience in both so it was the perfect fit for just a couple hours a week.  On top of the HR & AP responsiblities I will be helping with the SEO side of things for their online business.

If you are looking to create a beautiful staircase using ornate wrought iron balusters or gorgeous wooden treads then go to DirectStairParts.com, they have the best prices around and ship nation wide.. {and that is my shameless plug for my husbands company.. hehe.. but for real go.}

Anywho, I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal to have Cason with a babysitter 2 days a week. I was already doing it one day a week to work on my blog every once in a while, so I didn’t think it would affect me too much or him for that matter. But after this first week of being away two days from my little man I am realizing I am pretty pathetic and miss him like crazy!

Then to compound things, yesterday Cason and I were going out to run a couple of errands. We had stopped at a light and out of nowhere he says “I missed you mommy” and had a huge smile.

I wasn’t sure if I heard it right so I turned down the radio a little bit and said “What did you say buddy?”

He repeated it….”I missed you mommy.”

My heart just melted and my eyes started to fill with tears as we were driving.

Sooo precious! Love that little man!

I don’t know how you working moms do it … being away from your kiddos all day. I just had 16 hours away this week and I missed him like crazy. Ugh….

Now that I’m working again I’ve had to try and figure out when to make/test recipes for the ya’ll, when to take photos, edit photos, and then actually write the post.

It can get a little stressful. But something that is not stressful  … this Coconut Panna Cotta!

Its creamy, tropical, sweet, tart… and absolutely delicious!

OH… and its sugar free and dairy free!

UM… Win!

On a serious note though, instead of heavy cream, which Panna Cotta normally calls for, I used Coconut Milk which is quickly becoming my new favorite substitute. Then I used honey instead of sugar. The Coconut Panna Cotta could totally be eaten alone but since its berry season and all I thought I would add a sweet Mixed Berry Compote on top.

The tartness of the raspberries and blackberries complements the creamy coconut custard perfectly.

After shooting photos of this amazing dessert so I could post it for ya’ll today I was uber excited to finally give it a try.  But my husband beat me to it., on a side note I must be slow because Cason beat me to the chocolate on those Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles the other day! 🙂

As soon as he took a bite his eyes rolled up in his head and all I heard was .. “babe….” {in Mike language that means “this-is-amazing-and-I-need-to-finish-the-rest-of-it-right-now-and-have-you-make-another-batch-tomorrow”}

That was all I needed, I grabbed the other parfait dish and OMG … seriously so good!

I cannot wait to hear what you think about this Panna Cotta!
