- Pour into ramekins and chill at least 5 hours or overnight.

- The panna cotta can be served un-molded on a plate by running a knife around the edges then inverting the ramekin onto a plate and heating slightly with a torch, or by placing the ramekin in a bowl of hot water briefly to release the panna cotta.
- Spoon or pour a small amount of Blueberry Coulis over the panna cotta or alongside it on the plate.
- Garnish with fresh blueberries, lemon slices, a mint leaf, or a combination.
