  1. 1.Note: For this recipe, keep you coconut milk in the fridge the night before cooking.
  2. 2.Biscuit: Put everything into a blender until you get a dough you can handle. Now place the mixture into dessert glasses. Cool in the fridge.
  3. 3.Panna Cotta: Place the pineapple and the watermelon into a skllet and put on the stove to sauté. Add the agave syrup and the agar agar while you stir for 1-2 minutes. Then remove from the stove and let cool.
  4. 4.Now open the can of coconut milk, and we want to use only the cream (the cream collects in the upper part of the can on top of the water).
  5. 5.Place the coconut cream and the pineapple/watermelon mix into a blender and blend until you get a uniform cream. Pour the cream into the glasses as a second layer. Reserve in the fridge.
  6. 6.Jelly: Add the raspberries to a saucepan, add the water and cook for 5-6 minutes. Stir and add the agar agar towards the end of the 5 minutes.
  7. 7.Let cool for 5 minutes and then apply this third layer into the dessert glasses. Cool in the fridge for at least 4 hour until your jelly is firm.
  8. 8.Once chilled, peel and chop the almonds and use as well as physalis to top the panna cottas. Enjoy!
