Passionfruit Mousse Recipe


  • Fresh passionfruit (enough to yield 1/2 cup of pulp)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Gelatin powder (optional, for added stability)
  • Fresh passionfruit seeds, for garnish (optional)
  • Mint leaves, for garnish (optional)


Prepare the Passionfruit Puree:

  • Cut the fresh passionfruit in half and scoop out the pulp into a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl.
  • Use the back of a spoon to press the passionfruit pulp through the sieve, extracting as much juice and pulp as possible. Discard the seeds.

Make the Passionfruit Mousse Base:

  • In a saucepan, combine the passionfruit puree and granulated sugar. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar has dissolved completely. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Whip the Heavy Cream:

  • In a separate mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream and vanilla extract until soft peaks form. Be careful not to overwhip.

Combine the Mixtures:

  • Gently fold the cooled passionfruit mixture into the whipped cream until well combined. If desired, you can sprinkle gelatin powder over the passionfruit mixture before folding it into the whipped cream to add stability to the mousse.

Chill the Mousse:

  • Spoon the passionfruit mousse into serving glasses or bowls. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until the mousse is set.


  • Once chilled, garnish the passionfruit mousse with fresh passionfruit seeds and mint leaves, if desired.
  • Serve and enjoy the tropical delight of our Passionfruit Mousse!
