1/4 cup hemp hearts, toasted
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup + 2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup thick yogurt (10%)
1 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (3.5%)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 gelatin sheets

1/4 tsp salt

METHOD

Yogurt Panna Cotta
1. Place gelatin sheets in ice water to bloom (approximately 10 minutes).

2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add milk, cream, salt and sugar. Once milk mixture comes to a bare simmer, remove from heat.

3. Remove gelatin from ice water, squeezing out excess water. Gently stir gelatin into milk mixture until fully dissolved.

3. Whisk two yogurts together with vanilla until smooth. Add yogurt to milk mixture and mix well.

4. Divide evenly among 6 serving cups. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. 

 

Green Granita
1. Juice spinach, parsley, kale, and apples into a container holding the ascorbic acid. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve.

2. Add simple syrup and salt. Place juice in a large glass or metal container. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

3. Remove from fridge and scrape semi-frozen juice with a fork. Place juice in the freezer for 2 hours, then scrape mixture. Repeat until juice is completely iced.

4. Remove pannacotta from the fridge and top each with 3 Tbsp of green granita, 4 raspberries and a scattering of toasted hemp hearts. Serve immediately.
