Lemon Panna Cotta Dessert Recipe

Lemon Panna Cotta is a very easy keto dessert to make. It does not require a lot of time or skill and it can be very impressive. Panna cotta is a cream based gelatin dessert, so if you can make jello, you can make panna cotta! It will impress your friends a lot more and the creaminess will taste a lot better than the artificially flavored jello gelatin.

With only four ingredients and a preparation time of about 10 minutes, lemon panna cotta is a quick keto dessert. It is my go-to keto dessert or snack! Easy to make and very low in carbohydrates.


  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons Swerve (or zero carbohydrate sweetener to taste)
  • Juice of 1 whole lemon


In a saucepan, pour in the coconut milk. Turn on to medium heat. As the coconut milk is heating up, add the gelatin and stir with a whisk. Squeeze the lemon juice into the saucepan. Add the 2 tablespoons of zero carbohydrate sweetener. Whisk and bring to a boil. Once boiling, take off heat and divide into 5 dessert dishes. Refrigerate for two hours. Garnish with strawberries or blueberries to keep it keto. Enjoy!

  1. Wow! How easy is this to make? I thought that Panna cotta was something “exotic” that only food lovers and real chefs could make. Thanks for making this look so straight forward that even I could make it!

    My question to you is, can I make one with chocolate as well or will the chocolate separate with the heat from the stove?

    1. I have a chocolate recipe for panna cotta. I love it! Instead of adding the lemon, I use a tablespoon of cocoa and a tablespoon of zero carbohydrate sweetener. If you aren’t low carb, you could use honey or sugar. It is as easy to make as jello. It just tastes creamier and better! 

  2. I have always been a fan of dessert. I am also following the keto diet now so I will probably try making this dessert to supplement my diet when I am in need of some good dessert.
