6 servings (serving size: 1 custard and 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

Make and refrigerate the sauce up to two days ahead and the panna cotta up to a day ahead. Look for almond milk in aseptic containers on the organic food aisle of your supermarket. If you can't find it, substitute whole milk.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle gelatin over 1/3 cup almond milk in a small bowl; let stand 4 minutes.

Step 2

Combine 1 1/3 cups of almond milk, half-and-half, sugar, and half of the vanilla bean in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium heat (do not boil). Remove from heat. Add gelatin mixture, stirring until the gelatin dissolves. Remove vanilla bean. Pour mixture evenly into 6 (6-ounce) custard cups coated with cooking spray. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Step 3

Combine remaining half of the vanilla bean and nectar in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook until reduced to 1 cup (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in lime juice. Cover and chill.

Step 4

Loosen edges of custards with a knife or rubber spatula. Place a dessert plate, upside down, on top of each cup; invert onto plates. Spoon the sauce around custards. Garnish with fresh raspberries, if desired.
