Recipe for healthy passion fruit mousse for kids
The making of our healthy passion fruit mousse recipe is very simple and we are sure it will please little and big kids alike, with no room for less healthy ingredients! To make it you will need:
– 10 ripe passion fruits
– 3 cups natural Greek yogurt
– 300 ml water
– 1 pack passion fruit gelatine
– 1 tablespoon (tbsp) stevia powder.
Remove the pulp from the passion fruit and consider removing the seeds. These can remain in the dessert but many children do not like this texture, and it is better to run the pulp through a juicer and use only the juice and pulp in the confection.
After obtaining this pulp, place it in a blender along with the yoghurt and blend until a smooth mixture is obtained.
Prepare the gelatine by placing 150ml of water on the heat and pouring in the passion fruit gelatine once this water boils. Then, turn off the heat and add the remaining 150 ml of water.
Slightly shake this gelatine into the blender, obtaining a homogeneous preparation. If you feel it is acidic (sometimes passion fruit has this characteristic), you can add at this stage 1 tablespoon of stevia.
Shake into a bowl and refrigerate until desired consistency.
