This panna cotta is a delicious option for those on dairy-free diets, vegans (see the tip on gelatin), or anyone who loves coconut. It’s a little less glossy than traditional panna cotta, with a sophisticated matte look. The smooth purple blueberry sauce makes a dramatic contrast. Save a few extra blueberries for garnish, if you like.

I made the blueberry sauce only -- this sauce is quite good, full of berry flavor, lots of lemon brightness, and not too sweet. Takes about 10 minutes to make but is a little fussy -- 2 trips to the stove, plus pressing through mesh sieve.
I made this as an Easter dessert. The flavor was very nice, but it did not unfold properly. It was too loose, so I left them in the ramekins. I followed the recipe exactly, so just wondering if it needed more gelatin? The blueberry sauce was a nice complement and I sprinkled each serving with toasted coconut.
