what does passion fruit tastes like?

Passion fruit is a bright, tangy, tart fruit that is somewhat similar to citrusy. While you can definitely eat straight from the fruit, if you can tolerate that tartness, passion fruit is mostly used in the making of juices and desserts.

Another characteristic of passion fruit is the fragrance. This is a very distinctly scented fruit, once you know it you can never confuse for anything else.

is it safe to eat the seeds of passion fruit?

Yes. The seeds of a passion fruit are small gel-life seeds that are tart to bite. It’s like eating chia seeds but a bit larger.

When used to make juice the seeds are separated from the juice as it passes through a strainer. This is the case for many passion juice desserts. When and if the seeds are displayed (like in this passion fruit mousse) it’s mostly for it’s dramatic looks, tho it does add to the taste as well.

This said, the passion fruit mousse itself is incredibly delicious without the topping. It is a bit harder to find the actual fruit or a frozen version of it which contains the seeds in order to make the topping.

Don’t let this shy you away from enjoying one of the tastiest desserts, go for the 3-ingredient passion fruit mousse without the topping!

how to make passion fruit mousse

To make a simple and very tasty passion fruit mousse you will need:
1 can of condensed milk

1 can of creme de leite

1 cup passion fruit concentrate

Note: if you can’t find concentrated passion fruit juice, you can use regular passion fruit juice but the flavor will be milder. Don’t use more juice to compensate.

Add these 3-ingredients to a blender cup and pulse for about 30 seconds, only enough for the ingredients to incorporate. The key to a good mousse texture is less blending!
