Passion Fruit Mousse is a fluffy dessert made with fresh passion fruit, cream cheese, gelatin and a touch of sugar. Loads of tropical flavour hiding in these little cloudy desserts!

Kids like simple! I’ve asked many parents what their kid’s favourite dessert was, and I’ve got a lot of mousses. To make a mousse fluffy and light, you need a syphon. Don’t be scared; investing in one will bring joy and happiness into your house! Guaranteed! This recipe is easy to transform into whatever fruit your little ones prefer. I went with passion fruit because it’s my personal favourite. Although you could use fresh strawberries, mango, kiwi, oranges, and blueberries, you name it! The technique stays the same, but let’s attack this airy and fruity Passion Fruit Mousse!

Passion Fruits

To ensure the passion fruits are sweet and ready, make sure the shell is wrinkly… otherwise, you’ll get sour fruits, which are not ideal. Once you have a bunch of ripe passion fruits, you’ll need to collect their juice with a meshed sieve and grate for a while to pick up all the goods. I’ve used about eight purple passion fruits for this recipe to collect 1/2 cup. If you have the yellow type of passion fruit, you’ll need a bit less; the same rule applies to its ripeness.

Syphon Technique

The technique is simple. Here are a few points to keep in mind when using a syphon.

  • The liquid should fill half the bottle.
  • The liquid should be ultra smooth, passed through a fine-meshed sieve so as not to obstruct the exit with a seed.
  • To foam, you need a certain amount of fat, whether cream, cream cheese, etc.
  • Don’t close a boiling hot liquid; wait 5-10 minutes before adding it to the fridge.
  • Please give it a slight shake before the fridge rest and a vigorous one before serving.

So, if you keep these points in mind, everything should go smoothly!

Passion Fruit Mousse

Gelatin or Agar?

You can substitute the gelatin for agar to make it vegan. Cut the amount of gelatin by three, so in this mousse case, it would be 1/3 tsp of agar, the equivalent. As for gelatin, you can bring it to a boil and not need to boil it further. However, with agar, I would give it 2-3 minutes of simmering. Texturewise, the agar will not be as jingly as gelatine.

Presentation

I’ve presented them in small cups, a bit tapas style. Because kids love it so much, I would choose bigger cups next time. Since it’s half air/half mousse, I wouldn’t put any decoration on top of the mousse. It might collapse. But you could make a simple bed of oat or crumbled cookies underneath to bring in a crunch! If you have leftovers, you can freeze them in a silicone mould and a popsicle stick and turn them into popsicles.
