Syns per serving:3½
3 oranges, segmented, plus 1 tbsp finely grated orange zest
400ml skimmed milk
1 level tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp sweetener
4 sheets leaf gelatine
1 level tbsp finely chopped pistachio nuts
Candied orange peel, to decorate, see below
Heat the milk, cocoa powder and sweetener in a heavy-bottomed pan over a medium heat, whisking until smooth and just bubbling.
Meanwhile, soak the gelatine sheets in a bowl of cold water for 10-12 minutes, or until softened. Squeeze out the water, add the gelatine to the hot milk mixture and stir to dissolve. Remove from the heat, add orange zest and allow to cool completely.
Cut 2 of the segmented oranges into 1cm cubes, then divide between 4x150ml panna cotta moulds or ramekin dishes (or serve on the side if you prefer) Pour the chocolate mixture into the ramekins and chill for 6-8 hours, or until set.
When ready to eat, dip the moulds or ramekins in hot water for 20-30 seconds and turn out onto serving plates. Scatter a quarter of the chopped pistachios and the candied orange peel over each panna cotta and serve with the orange segments.
Tip: Candied orange peel: Finely zest 1 orange into long, thin strips and place in a pan with 1 tbsp sweetener and 150ml water. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat to low and cook gently for 10-12 minutes, or until the zest is translucent.
