NOTE: To manage lactose restrictions, substitute Carnation® Evaporated Milk with Carnation® Lactose-Free Evaporated Milk in any recipe. Our Lactose-Free Evaporated Milk has a sweeter profile than regular Evaporated Milk, so you may notice a slightly sweeter profile to your recipe. To manage dairy restrictions, substitute Carnation® Evaporated Milk with Carnation® Almond Cooking Milk in any recipe. Some recipes, such as our Libby’s Famous Pumpkin Pie, turn out best with a different amount of Almond Cooking Milk. Please check our Alternative Milk Recipes page for recipes that have been specifically tailored for alternative milk usage.

  • 1 can (12 fl.oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 pint raspberries


Whisk evaporated milk, sugar, orange zest, and gelatin in a small saucepan until gelatin softens and sugar dissolves. Bring milk mixture to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in liqueur. Pour a scant 1/2 cup into each of four 6-ounce custard cups. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. (Panna cotta can be covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to 5 days.)

To serve, run a thin-bladed knife around inside edge of custard cup. Turn out each panna cotta onto a small dessert plate, garnish with raspberries, and serve.
