First of, I have to start this post by saying that it is dedicated to the author of this recipe: my dear friend Sylvinha.
We met a while ago in London when I accidentally crashed at her place for about two months (but that’s a very long story), and it was one of those friendships that you would never thought you would have, but you do and you’re thankful for it. Sylvia is a natural-born fashionista/self-taught interior designer/mother of two/loving wife/floral designer/business woman and traveller extraordinaire. There’s not a single thing this woman can’t do!
She has an extremely busy life (super busy, as in insanely busy) yet she somehow manages to host an amazing number of dinner parties. At one of those beautiful dinners she served us an incredibly simple dessert that I have now stolen and now I serve it at all of my dinner parties: Delicious, sweet, fluffy passion fruit mousse… sorry Sylvia! It’s too good not to share!
As the amazing friend that she is, she even gave me a jar of her special touch: edible rose petals from Disneyland for adults Fortnum and Mason, which actually taste like grass but look beautiful, and we all know that it doesn’t really matter how food tastes but how good it looks on Instagram, right?
All kidding aside, this dessert is so easy to make it’s ridiculous, and believe me, it will leave your guests wanting more!
Here’s what you will need:
- 1 cup condensed milk.
- 1 cup double cream.
- ½ cup Passion Fruit concentrate.
- Juice from half a lemon.
Here’s how to do it:
Mix everything in a blender, pour into pretty cups, shove it in the fridge and wait for about an hour. That’s it. Seriously.
If you’re wondering where I got my unbelievably gorgeous set of vintage tea cups, you’re looking at Meublé. As soon as I saw them I fell in love! How can anyone not love iridescent, pastel, gold lined tea cups? I took a set of four but they have a couple more left, so hurry before anyone else gets them!
Have a lovely, sweet week :) ♥
