new year's eve lemon kefir panna cotta

Do you remember the first dessert you ever made? Mine was panna cotta. Ok ok, it wasn’t the very first dessert I EVER made, but it was the first dessert I made by myself when I started on this food journey! I remember being so proud of making it! I realized I’ve made it a couple times since, but never wrote a blog post on it! So, today I’m bringing to you a little variation on a typical panna cotta, because I made this one with healthy and amazing kefir! I love making a panna cotta in a champagne glass. This is the perfectly classy dessert for New Years Eve, that you don’t even have to be too guilty about eating, since it’s made with kefir!
