Hiya everyone. I have an amazing easy recipe for you today in the form of Mango and Passion fruit Mousse; they take minutes to make and are so perfect for Summer!
Before we get into today’s recipe I want to apologise for the lack of content last week. I have lots to update you on!
1 – WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! Our offer was accepted a couple of weeks ago and we finalised our mortgage on Saturday. We already had the mortgage in principle, but now we’ve had the offer accepted we can now move ahead with the mortgage and instructing our solicitors. We are so excited to get into our new home, it’s a project house and I have so many ideas for what we can do to it!
I’m crossing everything that it goes smoothly with both our sale and purchase, we both love the new house and hope nothing goes wrong!
2 – Because we now have a house, I have to start getting the house we’re living in ready to rent. I’ve known certain rooms needed redecorating, but because I’m in so much pain I’ve been putting it off for ages. Over the bank holiday weekend I decorated the kitchen, hence the lack of recipes – I didn’t have a kitchen!
Last week I moved on to the hall, stairs and landing and it almost killed me. I feel like I’ve taken 8 steps back pain wise. I’ve been in insane amounts of pain and pretty much on bed rest the last few days. I still have decorating to do, but I really am going to have to scale back what I do in a day.
Every part of my body hurts, the back pain is super deep, the sciatica is horrific, my hips are so stiff and painful and I can’t walk without help. I get so frustrated with my body because I felt like I wasn’t even doing much last week, but my husband pointed out I was standing up for long periods and moving around. So even though I don’t feel like I was hopping up and down ladders and vigorously sanding, it seems my body cannot tolerate anything more than standing for 15 minutes or painting one door frame.
The next few weekends are going to be mad with decorating too, I’m going to try and get ahead on some recipes, so I can still post, but the house being in such disarray is really messing with my mind.
I hate clutter so much, it stresses me out and makes me very anxious. I know we are moving so for the next few months we’re going to have boxes everywhere. Trying hard to stay calm!
Anyway, let’s talk about this Mango and Passion Fruit Mousse. It’s so simple to make, yet tastes DIVINE! It’s perfect for Summer as it’s no bake and whipped up in minutes.
You could make these ahead and then serve them at a family gathering or make them and eat them all yourself because they are that good you might not want to share!
All I did to make these was whisk powdered sugar and double cream together, add in some passion fruit pulp before dividing them between glasses and topping with mango chunks and more passion fruit pulp.
The mixture of mango and passion fruit together is just incredible. Sweet, tropical mango and slightly tart passion fruit with added crunch from the seeds. I can’t tell you how much we loved these mousses and I hope you do too!
Mango and Passion Fruit Mousse
- 2 cups (480ml) double/heavy cream
- 1/2 cup (60g) icing/powdered sugar, sifted
- 3 tbsp passion fruit pulp*
- 1/2 cup (125g) mango chunks
- Extra passion fruit pulp for garnish, I used 2tsp per mousse.
- Place the cream and sugar into a large bowl and whisk until you have soft peaks. You can use a machine, but I prefer to do it by hand because you get more control. It's very easy to over whip with a machine.
- Add in 3tbsp passion fruit pulp and whisk gently until you have stiff peaks. The cream should hold its shape and be creamy, not lumpy. If it's lumpy and looks like cottage cheese you've over whipped it – add in a little cream and stir gently to save it!
- Divide the mousse between 4 individual sized glasses (I used small trifle bowls). Top each with 2tbsp mango chunks and 2tsp of passion fruit pulp.
- You can make the mousse a day ahead and keep it covered in the fridge. When you’re ready to serve, just divide it up in bowls and top with fruit.
- Mango and Passion Fruit Mousse will keep covered, in the fridge for 2 days.
