  • Weigh the strawberries. This weight is probably different from the weight before cooking but it is worth the same amount of carbs

450/33= 13,6g strawberry sauce corresponds to 10g carbs


  • In a pan, add milk, cream, the insides of a vanilla pod and sugar 

300g cream equals to 24g carbs

1litre of full fat milk is 50g carbs (200g full fat milk equals to 10g carbs)

70g white sugar equals to 70g carbs

Total carbs for the pannacottas is 144g carbs

  • Each pannacotta ramequins is (144/ 10)= 14,4g carbs per ramequin

To this you add the strawberry sauce (33/10) ramequins= 3,3g carbs for the sauce in each ramekin
