White chocolate & kiwi Panna Cotta

Panna cotta is a fresh discover for me. I am not that into dairy products, which is the main reason that explain I've never try this dessert before.
Well it was until I got this idea or obsession: find a way to highlight the kiwi into a recipe, as I really love its shape and colors.

I first though about making a jelly, but I was not completely satisfied with the tasty part. And that was at this point the panna cotta idea popped up in my head! Why don't make a panna cotta with white chocolate to hide the milky taste, with a kiwi jelly on the top ?
To add a little bit more of exoticism I've put some vanilla seeds into the panna cotta and lime juice into the kiwi jelly.

And I am no addicted to this delicate sweet taste enhanced by the sour-side of the kiwi and lime.

Makes 6 baby panna cotta

Lime & kiwi jelly

1 kiwi
2 gr agar-agar powder (=1 sachet)
