Quick passion fruit semifreddo

Today is the first day of the Italian Festival Season in Auckland and I am getting ready to go to Andrea Bocelli in Concert! I have been so busy with the Festival that I don't have time to blog, but I can always find time for a super quick dessert! This one is cute and three ingredients: Passion fruit, sugar and cream. Take two passion fruits, cut them in half and scoop the pulp out. Put the shells in the freezer.
Mix the pulp with sugar to taste and let it stand for 30 minutes so that the sugar dissolves, then fold into just enough whipped cream to fill the passion fruit shells. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes then serve.

  1. Che eleganza, è da provare!

  2. Thanks for sharing this on the Sweet NZ September link-up. Do you think it would work with other fruit - like oranges or lemons, perhaps? By-the-way, you've written 'July' above, not 'September'! :)

  3. Hi Karen, how silly of me, I copied and pasted and forgot to change the month… corrected now! I never tried with other fruit, Maybe lemons and oranges would be better with some Greek yogurt instead of cream?
    Thank you so much for hosting!


  4. Hey it was really amazing!

    I have tried lemons and oranges. Taste is really amazing.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    Kind Regards

  5. There you go Karen, someone tried for us :-)
