LILIKOI (PASSION FRUIT) MOUSSE

Light, fluffy and bursting with lilikoi flavor! This amazing dessert comes together in 10 minutes for a decadent yet delicate dessert that will have you coming back for more!

I’ve been throwing a lot of lilikoi recipes at you lately…sorry, not sorry! Lilikoi is to amazing of a fruit to regret any of it! The flavor is incredibly bold and lands somewhere between extremely sweet to extremely tart, depending on the individual fruit. But there really is nothing like it!

We had an incredible harvest this year. We had so much fruit! Our vines produce more than I can use right away so I freeze the juice in half cup containers, which makes it super easy to pull out what I need for a recipe.

This recipe is a favorite not only because it tastes amazing but because it comes together in 10 minutes, with just a few ingredients.

One of the challenges with mousse is getting the texture right and having the whipped cream set-up and firm. With the addition of just a little unflavored gelatin, it gives this mousse the perfect, foolproof consistency every time! Give it a try! You won’t regret it.

The Simple Steps to Making Lilikoi Mousse:

  • Place a mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer 20 minutes ahead of time. Whenever whipping cream you want your tools very cold.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, soften the powdered gelatin in 2 tablespoons room temperature water, stirring gently to moisten all the gelatin. Let it stand for 5 minutes. Then microwave for 10 to 15 seconds, until the gelatin is translucent. Set aside.
  • In the cold mixing bowl add sugar, lilikoi juice, lemon zest and heavy cream.
  • Beat on medium-speed until stiff peaks form, wiping the sides of the bowl with a spatula at least once.
  • Add the melted gelatin mixture and beat on low-speed until well-blended and smooth.
  • Pipe or spoon mousse into desired serving dishes. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Garnish with whipped cream and fresh fruit.

That’s it! You’re done! So simple and so good!
