Recipe – Passionfruit Mousse | Receita – Mousse de Maracujá

One of the most common ways to serve passionfruit here in Brazil is the dessert known as Passionfruit Mousse (Mousse de Maracujá). It is extremely easy to prepare, and dependably delicious. I have included two recipes below, one for use in non-tropical countries, and one for use in Brazil. The ingredients are different due to the availability of certain products, but the resulting dessert will be nearly identical. The non-tropical recipe follows, and the Brazilian recipe follows the Portuguese text.

Passionfruit Mousse

  • 1 cup (250 ml.) whipping cream
  • 1 cup (250 ml.) evaporated/sweetened-condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml.) frozen passionfruit juice concentrate
  • (optional) one fresh passionfruit

Put all the ingredients in a blender, and blend at low speed until the liquid becomes light at fluffy. Pour the mixture into a serving bowl, or individual dessert dishes. If fresh passionfruit is available, spread a small amount of pulp, including seeds on top of the mixture. Chill for at least 2 hours prior to serving. Serves 4.

Uma das maneiras as mais comuns de servir a maracujá aqui no Brasil é na sobremesa conhecida como Mousse de Maracujá (Passionfruit Mousse). É extremamente fácil a preparar, e sempre delicioso. Eu incluí duas receitas aqui, uma para o uso nos países não-tropicais, e uma para o uso no Brasil. Os ingredientes são diferentes devido à disponibilidade de determinados produtos, mas a sobremesa resultante será quase idêntica. A receita brasileira segue, e a receita não-tropical segue o texto inglês.

Mousse de Maracujá

  • 1 lata de leite condensada
  • 1 lata de creme de leite
  • 1 xicara de suco de maracujá
  • umas colheres de polpa de maracujá, com sementes

Misture tudo numa liquificadora, e processe até a mistura fica fina e leve, aproximadamente 1 minuto. Coloque a mistura numa tigela, ou nos copos de sobremesa. Espalhe um pouco da polpa em cima. Bote na geladeira, e deixe duas horas ao minimo antes de servir. Serve 4.
