Remarks

This recipe also works well with apricots and almonds. The general idea is to balance the soft sweetness of the almonds with a slightly tart fruit.

You can also make the panna cotta without cream, just using more almond milk instead, but do note that the texture will be quite different and not as, well, creamy.
