  • ½ cup fat-free half-and-half
  • 1½ teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup fat-free milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (see Tips)
  • 2 tablespoons water

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Coat four 8-ounce ramekins with cooking spray and place in a shallow baking pan or on a tray. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean. In a medium saucepan combine vanilla bean seeds and pod and half-and-half. Sprinkle with gelatin (do not stir); let stand 5 minutes. Cook and stir over medium-low until gelatin is dissolved. Whisk in Greek yogurt, milk, sugar, water and salt; remove from heat. Remove and discard vanilla bean pod.
  2. Pour mixture into the prepared ramekins. Cover and chill 4 hours or until firm.
  3. Meanwhile, for cranberry sauce, in a small saucepan combine cranberries, apple juice and 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar. Bring to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, 5 to 8 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring occasionally. Cool.
  4. Unmold panna cotta onto a platter or dessert plates. Top with cranberry sauce and pistachios.
  • Tips: We do not recommend a sugar substitute for this recipe.
  • To unmold the panna cotta, loosen the edges from the sides of each ramekin with a sharp knife. Dip bottom of the ramekin into warm water for 5 to 10 seconds, then invert onto a platter or dessert plate and remove the ramekin.
