- IMPORTANT PREP NOTES:
recipe is made in two parts. Allow yourself plenty of time, as the first portion
must set before you can make the inside (lime) portion. If you'e short on time,
make extra blueberry panna cotta, skip the inner portion and simply fill the alien
body Mold with the blueberry panna cotta.
- The lime panna cotta portion
of this recipe makes enough to fill the inner guts portion of the alien Mold, plus a Mini-Brain Gelatin Mold (click for details). If you do not have a mini-brain Gelatin Mold, you can pour the leftovers into individual ramekins and chill until set.
the blueberry syrup you can use blueberry pancake syrup -- available in any grocery
store, or an Italian syrup, like those made by Torani or Da Vinci, available in
gourmet shops and coffee houses.
- The recipe works fine without he cardamom,
but the spice does add a nice, somewhat exotic, flavor to the finished dish.
Blueberry Buttermilk Panna Cotta for Alien Body
- Lightly coat the
inside of the alien body Mold and the outside of the alien guts
Mold with a thin coat of vegetable oil or cooking spray. Find an oblong pan large
enough to hold the alien body mold. Use kitchen towel to prop the body mold, levelly,
in the center of the pan. Use the clip that come with the molds to clip the inner
guts mold in place within the body Mold. Hint: While the clips that come
with the Mold (the white clips in the photo below) do work, we find ordinary office
clip (like the silver ones in the photo) are even easier and more effective).
the blueberries and Buttermilk in a blender or food processor until very smooth.
Pour through a fine mesh sieve to filter out any blueberry skins, discarding the
solids. Your should have about 1 1/2 cups liquid.

a bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over. Let stand for about 10 minutes so Gelatin can soften.
- Mix remaining 1/2 cup milk and cream in a heavy, medium saucepan.
Bring to a simmer over low heat. Stir in sugar and blueberry syrup and stir until
sugar is dissolved, about 30 seconds. Stir in milk/Gelatin mixture and cook until
completely dissolved, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat, pour into a bowl, and
whisk in the blueberry Buttermilk mixture. Pour the mixture into the outer alien
body portion of the prepared Mold and chill for at least 6 hours or overnight
before preparing lime panna cotta for the alien guts.

milk and cream in a heavy, medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Stir

a few drops of green and yellow food color, or a generous dollop of green and
yellow paste color to achieve that Day-Glo look. Allow mixture to cool for at

it cool so long that it begins to set).
