A light passion fruit mousse with mango, a delicious summer dessert.

Ingredients (4 persons)

Passion fruit mousse ingredients
  • 8 passion fruits
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 mango
  • 250 gr. whipped cream
  • 2.25 sheets of gelatin
  • 200 ml whole milk
  • 1 tbsp. sugar

The photo shows 3 eggs, this is because I made meringue for this dish, which I did not use in this recipe.


Place the gelatin sheets in cold water for about 10 minutes.

Heat the milk until it is almost boiling. Let it cool slightly and stir the gelatin into the warm milk.

Cut the passion fruit in half, scoop out the pulp from the passion fruit, pass the juice through a sieve to get just the juice. If you want to use the seeds, it is not necessary to sift the pulp.

passion fruit juice
Juice of 7 passion fruits, 1 I used whole, so that there are some seeds in the mousse.

Pour the passion fruit juice/meat into a food processor, add the juice of 1/2 lemon and half a mango. Mash this.
