I was surprised to see passion fruit at the Buenos Aires farmers market since its consumption is not typical for Argentines. Passion fruit is a tropical fruit and is a source of fiber, phytochemicals like carotenoids, vitamin A and 100 grams of its pulp covers 50% of vitamin C of RDA.
Passion fruit mousse is a typical Brazilian dessert that has condensed milk and heavy cream, but in this lighter version we can enjoy the super refreshing and tropical flavor of passion fruit without as many calories. Ideal dessert for any occasion, easy and gluten-free!
PASSION FRUIT DELIGHT
Recipe developed by Romina Barritta de Defranchi
7 grams unflavored powdered gelatin
2 big yellow passion fruits
1 cup (240 g) full fat vanilla yogurt
3 grams (1/2 teaspoon) stevia
In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in ½ cup of boiling water. Take 2 large passion fruit*, cut them in the middle and place all its content into a blender or food processor. Blend until seeds are smash (at this point seeds or part of them may be strained with a fine colander). Add the dissolved gelatin, yogurt, stevia and blend for a few more seconds. Place in individual molds. Put into the refrigerator until it solidifies, at least 3 hours. Serve with fresh fruits such as kiwi, melon or tangerines and/or passion fruit sauce**.

*If the passion fruits are too perfect it means that they are not yet mature, if you shake them and feel that inside is “loose” and "heavy" they are mature enough to use.
**To make a passion fruit sauce: blend the pulp of 1 passion fruit with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 tablespoon water. Boil this mixture a few minutes to thicken and let cool.
