Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 x 250g Perfection Strawberries
  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  • 2 limes
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 2 tsp powdered gelatine
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 11/4 cups (330g) Greek yoghurt
  • Limes wedges

Method

  1. Set 4 strawberries aside in the fridge until you are ready to serve. Slice the remaining strawberries. Combine ½ cup sugar, lime juice and 1 tablespoon water in a medium non-stick saucepan. Bring to simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer gently 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Add sliced strawberries, shake the pan gently to coat. Cool 15 minutes.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, spoon the strawberries between 4 x ¾ cup-capacity (185ml) glasses. Refrigerate until required. Pour the syrup into a jug and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Pour 100ml of cream into a medium saucepan. Sprinkle over the gelatine. Whisk gently over low heat until the cream is warm and gelatine has dissolved (do not boil). Add the remaining cream, remaining ½ cup sugar and vanilla. Whisk gently over low until sugar has dissolved and mixture is warm, do not boil. Remove from heat and stand 5 minutes. Whisk in yoghurt, then strain into a jug.
  4. Pour panna cotta mix over the strawberries, cover and refrigerate 4 hours until set. Just before serving, hull and slice reserved strawberries, arrange over panna cotta. Spoon over reserved strawberry lime syrup. Serve with lime wedges.
