Halal Pizza Bombs

Mango Panna Cotta

Make the most of the lovely sunshine before the weather change – typical London weather – and indulge in this refreshing and creamy mango panna cotta. It is fairly easy to make and once you nail it, you can swap out mango for coffee, strawberry and other fruits.
