Yields: 8 servings


Panna Cotta:

2 cups whipping cream (substitute half and half if desired)

2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin

½ cup sugar

1 cups non-fat plain or vanilla yogurt

5 drops Wild Orange essential oil


¾ cup Orange Juice, divided

½ teaspoon unflavored gelatin


Place ¼ cup of cream into small bowl, sprinkle with gelatin. Let stand to soften (about 10 minutes).
While gelatin is softening, pour remaining cream and ½-cup sugar into a 2-quart saucepan; place over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour into a large bowl.
Add yogurt, softened gelatin/cream mixture, and Wild Orange oil; whisk until well blended and smooth.
Divide between 8 martini or juice glasses and chill for several hours or overnight, until set.
Once panna cotta is set, place ¼ cup of orange juice in small dish and sprinkle unflavored gelatin over the top.
Set aside to soften for about 5 minutes.
Heat remaining orange juice in a microwave safe dish until it begins to simmer, about 45–60 seconds.
Scrape softened gelatin mixture into hot orange juice and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Set aside to cool at room temperature; divide between each of the panna cotta glasses to create an even layer on top.
Refrigerate until orange gelee is set.
