About this recipe: This is a really popular Brazilian dessert (and an old family recipe) and requires no cooking at all. It's a little tart and tangy for those of you who don't like your desserts to be too sweet.


Serves: 6 

  • 8 passion fruit
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 (400g) tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 500ml double cream

Prep:15min  ›  Extra time:1hr chilling  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

  1. Break passion fruit in half and empty contents into a bowl. Use a little water to help rinse the juice out of the skins. Mix with hands to soften pulp. Strain through a sieve or muslin bag. Stir in sugar and sweetened condensed milk.
  2. In a chilled bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the cream into the passion fruit mixture, then quickly fold in remaining cream until no streaks remain. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
