We all need to treat ourselves now and then, and you can do just that with this recipe for Vanilla Bean and Almond Milk Panna Cotta. During flare-ups, swap berries for a seedless fruit, and consider reducing the sugar. 

Yields: 3 servings


  • 1 ½ gelatin sheets
  • 1 ½ cups almond milk
  • 2 oz. granulated sugar
  • 1 pc. vanilla bean, pulp removed
  • 6 blackberries, halved

Panna cotta might mean “cooked cream,” but who says you can’t throw in almond milk instead? Chef Geoffrey Zakarian shows us how to make a non-dairy, low sugar, Crohn’s-friendly panna cotta that will satisfy your sweet tooth without irritating your gut.
