Lemon Panna Cotta is a super light dessert made sugar free, low carb and very low in calories!
Just because it's the New Year of 2015, doesn't mean you can't have desserts now that you might possibly be looking to eat lighter and lower in carbs and sugar.
I'm here to break that mold for you today.
YOU CAN enjoy a light dessert without going into a sugar coma or craving more of the dessert. Making it sweetened with natural Lemon flavored stevia is the way I make this light dessert decadent, delicious and without any sugar!
Making a Panna Cotta has been on my foodie To -Do List for a long time, just never getting around to it. I guess I thought it might be a long detailed kind of recipe and I wasn't into it.
But I was wrong. And it has become one of the best ways I know to kick my sweet tooth! The heavy cream provides such a satiating, comforting feeling in each bite. You will be completely satisfied in one serving I can promise you that!
You can even change out the flavors of lemon to something else like orange and use Orange flavored liquid stevia. You could make this all vanilla and use vanilla creme liquid stevia as well!
Just a few simple ingredients and you've got an awesome after dinner snack that is light in calories but high in flavor!

mmmm you can never go wrong with a lemon dessert!
Im not sure how you came up with 179 calories per serving. Did you by any chance use half & half instead of heavy cream?
I just love lemon desserts! I know everyone thinks of lemon as a spring dessert but I love it in the winter. These are so bright and pretty too.
I would love to try this, but I can't find full fat yogurt anywhere! Will low fat work? I'm thinking it won't set up properly.
Yes it will still work. My family loves the Brown Cow cream top full fat found at Whole Foods.
I absolutely love panna cotta. How amazing that you can make it sugar free!
