This Keto Kaffir lime panna cotta is inspired by the flavours of Thailand. I have to be honest, my knowledge of Thai desserts is insufficient. I also believe that they will take a lot of work to turn into Keto friendly foods. So I called upon my wife Deepti to whip up a delicious Thai inspired dessert. Something that would evoke the memories of Thailand and also hit that sweet spot. So she came up with this simple and easy recipe for a Kaffir Lime Panna Cotta. It’s super easy, delicious and an absolute fat bomb! Enjoy!

Panna Cotta is a great Keto dessert. In fact once you’re done making this version you can try my coffee panna cotta or the plain vanilla one with a berry puree. It’s pretty much a great base for making any flavours you like. I’d love to hear your ideas for different flavour combinations. Please do share them with me in the comments below.

It is quite a heavy dessert so normally 1/2 a serving is enough.
