Peach-Blueberry Pannacotta

Kids will love this just as much as ice cream (and will get some fresh fruit to boot). And you’ll love it too, especially when you realize that swapping a 1/2 cup (125 mL) serving of vanilla ice cream for this cold, creamy treat will cut more than 100 calories and 13 grams of fat. Pannacotta is a traditional Italian dessert. It’s usually made with a full-fat cream but in this version I use skim milk. Gelatin is easy to work with, but measure carefully, as too much will make the pannacotta bounce like Jell-O. It’s best to make this dessert the night before, as it should set for at least four hours.
