To make this panna cotta, you should find the bowl, put there kitchen towel and place the the glasses so that you can fill them under an angle. You can also use plastic containers from veggies or greens that you buy in store. I used one similar to make this Persimmon panna cotta.
Fill half of the glasses with orange juice mixture, wait until it sets in the fridge. Then remove the glasses from the bowl and fill them with milk and cream panna cotta and leave in the fridge. When it sets, decorate with melissa and shredded chocolate.
