  • Pour the juice into a saucepan. Add 50 gr sugar and 50 ml water, stir slightly.
  • Turn on the stove at medium heat. If the juice is not sweet enough, add gradually 5-10 gr sugar until its taste is balance.
  • When the juice start boiling, turn off the heat.
  • Soaked 8 gr gelatin sheet in cold water for 5-10 minutes. Once soft, lift it from the water and add in hot passion fruit juice saucepan and stir until the gelatin completely dissolved
  • Pour passion fruit juice into two separated bowl. One for passion fruit mousse and one for passion fruit jelly.
  • Whip 200 ml whipping cream with 20 gr granulated sugar until soft peak
  • Pour gradually one bowl of passion fruit juice into whipped cream bowl and use a spatula to mix them until they completely combined. You can taste the flavour while mixing to make sure its flavor is match with yours.

2. Serving

  • Wash and soak passion fruit peel in salted water for 5-10 minutes to remove any excess chemical residues. 
  • Then, use a spoon to remove leftover parts and clean the inside of passion fruit peel. Wash again in fresh water. Dry and left aside.
  • Use a knife to cut a thin slice in the bottom of passion fruit peel to make a mousse cup.

You can use glass or plastic cup to contain the mousse if you don’t want to use passion fruit peel as mousse cup. 

  • Pour the passion fruit mousse in ¾ cups.
  • Place the cups on tray and put the whole tray in freezer for 30-45 min or fridge in 60 min to harden the mousse and its surface.
  • When the mousse surface is completely harden, use a spoon to pour a thin layer of passion fruit juice (that prepared before) to make a jelly glaze.

Please note that the mousse surface has to be completely harden before doing this step.

  • Leave the mousse in fridge again for 15-30 min for hardening the glaze. 
  • Cold serving. You can serve it a little of passion fruit syrup (you can find the instruction below ) to enhance its flavor and decorate with mint leaves.

It’s best served and reserve in fridge in 1-2 days.
