We have a rather large Oriental supermarket here and I found different fruit concentrates like Passion fruit, guava, strawberry etc. The concentrates are thick like corn syrup and are sweet. I use them for most of my recipes that call for any type of extracts. The passion fruit concentrate is sweet but has a strong tangy flavor too.
- 1 8 oz package cream cheese (softened)
- 1/2 cup passion fruit concentrate
- 2-3 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
In a medium sized bowl, cream together the cream cheese and passion fruit concentrate till well combined. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer and beat the cream on high speed until it is thick and holds a peak when you take the beater out. Beat in the powdered sugar, being sure it is entirely mixed in. Stir about 1/3 of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until combined, then fold the cream cheese/cream mixture into the remaining whipped cream. Makes about 4 cups
*The powdered sugar is to your taste – sometimes I don’t add it at all if the cake this mousse is paired with is very sweet. The tartness of the passion fruit evens it out
