Kona Coffee Panna Cotta with Coffee Blueberry Sauce

Serves: 10 People
Cooking Time: 3.5 Hours

Ingredients:
Panna Cotta
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup ground Wailele Estates, 100% Kona Coffee
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 tablespoons Grand Marnier (orange liqueur)
1 envelope unflavored gelatin (2 1/4 teaspoons)
2 tablespoons cold water
10 piece Reynolds foil backing cups

Coffee Blueberry Sauce
1 cup water
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons ground Wailele Estates, 100% Kona Coffee
1 cinnamon stick
16 oz pack frozen blueberries

Directions:

In a small saucepan, add the cream, ground coffee, sugar, vanilla and simmer for 5 minutes. In a small bowl add the cold water then sprinkle in the gelatin. Let the mixture rest until all the gelatin has absorbed the water, about 2-3 minutes. Once the gelatin has set, add it to the coffee cream mixture and stir until gelatin has completely dissolved. With a fine mesh strainer pour coffee cream mixture into a medium bowl, straining out the coffee grinds. Whisk in the yogurt, coconut milk and Grand Marnier until smooth.  Line a muffin pan with foil cups and equally pour the mixture into 10 muffin tins and place them into the refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Once the mixture has set it will be firm to touch.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan simmer the water, sugar, coffee and cinnamon stick on low heat until the mixture has reduced its size by 50%, about 20 minutes. With the fine mesh strainer pour coffee syrup into another small saucepan, making sure to strain out all the coffee grinds and cinnamon stick. Next add the blueberries and simmer the contents for another 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

To assemble the dessert peel off the foil baking cup gently from the panna cotta and place it onto a plate. Next add a few spoonfuls of blueberry sauce and enjoy!
