Passion Fruit Panna Cotta with Mango Puree

This Panna Cotta is a wonderful, light and refreshing dessert for the summer.

6 Servings


  • 300 milliliters cream (choose one with at least 32% fat)
  • 150 milliliters milk
  • 90 grams caster sugar
  • 6 pieces passion fruit
  • 10 grams gelatin (or 6-8 gelatin sheets)
  • 1 Piece mango (for the serving puree)


  1. Start by cutting all the passion fruit pieces in half and removing the pulp. Take a sieve and add the pulp to it, pressing it with the back of a spoon and squeezing as much juice as possible from the passion fruit. Keep the seeds for serving or decoration.
  2. In a pot, add the cream, milk, sugar and passion fruit juice and bring everything close to a boil until the sugar has melted. Leave aside to cool.
  3. If you are using granulated gelatin, then hydrate it in water for 10 minutes. The quantity of water might differ but it is usually written on the back of the sachet. However, if it's not specified, you will need to add 6x more water than the quantity of gelatin.
    After hydrating it, you will need to dissolve it on a water bath until fully dissolved. Be careful not to exceed 60 Celsius degrees, otherwise the properties of the gelatin will be gone and you dessert will not set.
    If you are using gelatin sheets, simply soak them in cold water for 5 minutes, then drain the excess water and add them once the panna cotta has reached 59 degrees Celsius.
  4. Once you added the gelatin, mix everything well and pour the panna cotta in moulds. I have used silicone ones, but you can also use some small ramekin balls, jars, cups, glasses.
    Let the panna cotta set in the fridge for 5h at least.
    Serve them with mango puree and extra passion fruit. For the mango puree, I simply blended the mango till it reached a puree consistency.
