This no-bake strawberries and cream custard is a Panna Cotta. Panna Cottas are basically a no-bake custard that is an elegant dessert to make yet it is one of my favorite no-bake desserts! I made these panna cotta custards into heart shapes to make Valentine’s Day extra special!

I love keto panna cotta because they are easy, they are egg free and can be made dairy free and nut free!
When making panna cottas or anything with gelatin a helpful tip is know that gelatin can get too rubbery if it sits too long. If you are making this panna cotta for consuming in a day or 2, I suggest using ¼ teaspoon less gelatin or it tends to get too rubbery.

When I make my no-bake Strawberries and Cream Custard, I always use Further Food Gelatin! Further Foods gelatin and collagen peptides are both excellent sources of collagen. Both their Collagen & Gelatin are sourced from the highest quality, grass-fed, pasture-raised, hormone-free, and antibiotic free bovine collagen.

The benefits of collagen are astounding! Collagen helps support skin elasticity & hydration, longer hair & nails, stronger bones & joints, faster recovery between workouts, increased flexibility, improved digestion, and it even keeps you feeling full and satiated for longer! Collagen Peptides dissolves instantly in any recipe, and Gelatin Powder naturally thickens recipes. It’s perfect for making jello, gummies, cheesecake, or panna cotta!

My boys LOVED this simple dessert!
They asked for me to make a double batch next time and I told them, “It is so easy, you can make it!”
If you want to make more of a gummy than a custard, do 4 teaspoons gelatin instead of only 2 teaspoons.
