This Brazilian passion fruit mousse, originated in Brazil and is an easy recipe that is creamy, sweet, and slightly tart.
It has a creamy but slightly stiff texture that melts in your mouth.
Using fresh fruit will always give you the best flavour, but I can not always find fresh passion fruit. Recently I bought a bottle of passion fruit pulp from Costco.
You can buy Passion Fruit pulp cans on line, some speciality stores may have. I brought mine from Australia.
You can serve the Mousse in 4 small dessert mould, glass bowls, mason jars or even Martini glasses. You can also pour it in a medium size bowl.

If using the fresh fruit, pick a passion fruit that is slightly wrinkled and has a deep yellow or purple colour-it depends on the variation available in your region.
