Mousse de Maracujá – Passion Fruit Mousse


(Serves: Makes 4)
  • 1 Tin (400g) condensed milk
  • 12 Passionfruit
  • 250ml Coconut Cream

I’m about to let you into a little secret… it’s the tastiest and simplest recipe to come out of Brazil…. maybe even the world. Passionfruit Mousse (or Mousse de Maracujá as it’s more commonly known as) is made of just 3 ingredients and as delicious as it is easy to prepare. All you will need is passionfruit, cream and and condensed milk. I use Coconut Cream as the consistency closely resembles the “Creme de Leite” they use in Brazil to make this pudding. This is perfect for those days when you are feeling indulgent or need to wow some dinner guests but can’t be bothered with a long hassle-filled dessert. I’ve also yet to meet anyone who doesn’t like passionfruit….

My face in the picture says it all really….. nom nom nom.
