I love passion fruit! Normally when we love something we eat it a lot. Its different with passion fruit as it is not such a common cooking ingredient. You can imagine how happy I was when I came across a passion fruit mousse recipe. I adapted it to my liking and came up with probably one of my favorite desserts! Its is puffy and creamy, a little sour and a little sweet while packed with flavor. Not to mention it comes together in a flash!
It’s not the prettiest of desserts, but we know better than to judge by its looks. 😉
I couldn’t resist having a taste already at the scene.
Tip: Another great use of passion fruit is adding some of its delicious juice (and seeds-nice and crunchy) to a glass of orange juice.

Until next time,
- 150 ml sweetened condensed milk
- 3 egg whites
- 3 large passion fruits
- 1/2 of a lime
- Cut the passion fruits in half and scrape out its contents. Pour it all through a sieve and try to get as much juice as possible out of the seedpouches. Keep the seeds and the rest of the material for later.
- Pour 150 ml of sweetened condensed milk in a bowl and add the juice of 3 passion fruits and the juice of half a lime. Mix well and set aside.
- Seperate the eggs and whip the egg whites until soft peaks. Take 1/3 of egg whites and slowly incorporate them in the milk and fruit mixture. Add the remaining 2/3 and gently mix until just combined. Try to make it keep the fluffines- do not overmix!
- Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
- Serve with passion fruit seeds and pulp on top and a mint leave. Enjoy!
- I used condensed milk in a tube. Like that you can use what you need and keep the rest for another time.
