When searching for inspiration for a Star Wars dessert, I came across this Blue Milk Panna Cotta from Disneyland. It had such an “other worldly” look to it with the crazy blue custard and the purple blueberry gelatin top with whole blueberries in the gelatin. It felt different but also nice enough to have at a dinner party. I used blue food coloring in the panna cotta only. The purple color in the gelatin is natural from the blueberries themselves. We’ve had many individuals taste this and they all like the result, especially the panna cotta which is turning into a favorite in my household. Please give this recipe a try and leave a comment below to let us know how it turned out. Enjoy!
In Florida, Disney added the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party! that has amazing looking food including a new version of this dessert. Their version doesn’t have the blueberry gelatin on top and instead is topped with whipped cream and a white chocolate decorative square. I’ve also seen it topped with candy pearls in reviews of this party. I think it’s safe to say that this dessert will be welcome at any Star Wars themed party!

- Allow gelatin to cool about 10 minutes.
