Orange “Creamsicle” Panna Cotta (Paleo, Dairy Free)


Boy is it cold here! The last few days we’ve had negative wind chill temps here in south central Pennsylvania. Bur! 


There’s a blanket of snow covering the ground and we also had crystal clear skies and a full moon this week.  Once the sun goes down, it looks like a million tiny diamonds sparkling all over the snow as the moon shines it’s light down below. I just love all those sparkles – it’s like nature’s glitter and it’s absolutely beautiful 🙂


Even though I enjoy the beauty and the fun of the snow (I love sledding!), I really dislike the cold temperatures. Anyone else with me on that?


So this week, I’ve been especially craving a taste of summer.  And lucky for me, a friend of ours brought us a big basket of freshly picked oranges from Florida yesterday! Those Florida oranges are so good. I’ve been savoring each juicy, sweet bite as I think about all the possibilities of new recipes I want to create with them.

So last night, after an especially cold day, I whipped up this simple orange panna cotta that tastes just like a creamsicle. It sure hit the spot and reminded me of sweet summertime. I couldn’t get over how  delicious it was and also how incredibly simple it was to make. I couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you!


This orange creamsicle panna cotta is a very healthy dessert option, made with nourishing ingredients like weight loss friendly and metabolism boosting coconut milk and also gut healing gelatin. It’s also a great choice to serve to company. It looks super fancy and elegant, but it’s so simple to make (5 minutes of prep!) with only a few ingredients. 


And because orange and dark chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations, I couldn’t resist topping each serving with a few shavings of a dark chocolate bar and a few extra segments of those yummy Florida oranges. If you love dark chocolate and orange as much as I do, I would totally recommend doing that, too – it’s divine!

Serves: 4 servings

  1. Place all the ingredients together in a pot over medium heat. Whisk occasionally until bubbles start to appear on the sides and the gelatin is completely dissolved (do not bring to a boil - important). This should take about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the pot from heat and pour into small serving dishes or ramekins. I used 4 small custard cups like THIS.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until completely set.
  4. Before serving, top with any optional additional toppings of choice. Enjoy!
If you are using Great Lakes gelatin, make sure to use the orange/reddish can NOT the green one! 🙂

    Just used up the last of my Great Lakes gelatin. Can’t wait to try this out when I get some more. The timing is perfect…I decided to try cutting out dairy completely for a month and see if I notice any changes.

      I’m hoping for your sake that you can still do dairy! I can’t and still get so bummed about it. It was the hardest thing for me to give up – so much harder than grains. But the way I feel without it is SO worth it (at least that’s what I keep telling myself when I see all my friends eating ice cream lol). I had headaches every single day throughout my childhood and adulthood – it was a dairy sensitivity and I had no idea until I gave up dairy for 30 days about a year or two ago! I can still do sheep and goat’s milk dairy, which has been a blessing, though! Keep me posted what you find out after your 30 days! And I hope you enjoy this recipe, too 🙂

    Can you use sweetened coconut milk and eliminate the honey?
