passion fruit et vanilla yoghurt mousse

so long since i last made any mousse cake, so lazy!! i know…  then i had a look at my ingredients cupboard, and realised i doesn’t have any gelatine.. ah.. visit to supermarket; thus no more excuse not to make it. =P

i did think of doing it as a little gateaux, but again the laziness put me of doing a vanilla chiffon sponge (tried this one, superrrrr nice smell), so i saw this little jar that i have reserved after my diary intakes. Majority of this mousse is more of an adaptation of Aran’s Yoghurt and strawberry mousse (i m sure no one is not aware of Cannelle et Vanille) but i have improvised the receipe to passion fruit instead. my friends know i got a weak point for passion fruit… really love that refreshing taste!

vanilla yoghurt mousse
adapted from Cannelle et Vanille

250ml double cream
1 vanilla bean seeds (cut in half, and scrap out all of the seeds)
50g sugar
2 sheets of gelatine (2g per sheet)
160g plain/vanilla yoghurt (only had plain on hand)

gelatine in cold ice water, till soften.
whip the cream with sugar with soft peaks (60%). take 2 tablespoon of the whipped cream and add the soften gelatine into it. mixed well and place it into microwave for 10 seconds; once you take it out stire well and ensure the gelatine is fully melted. if its too hot, leave it to stand for a moment till its warm. (as if its too hot, it will mealt the whipped cream).
add the gelatin mixture into the remaining whipped cream, fold in quickly and then fold in the yoghurt too.
put the mousse into pipping bag, and pipe it into jar/gateaux moulds. level the surface evenly and place it into the fridge to set.

passion fruit mousse

100g passion fruit puree (i used the frozen puree)
20g sugar (if you want it to be a little sweeter, you can even use to 30g)
1 sheet of gelatine (2g per sheet)
75g cream

gelatine in cold ice water, till soften.
whip cream with sugar till soft peaks.
warm the passion fruit puree with sugar via microwave, add the gelatine in, mix till is fully melted. put a table spoon or two of cream into the passion fruit mixture, mixed well. and pour it back into the remaining cream. and fold it all in.
and now you can use a pipping bag to pipe a small layer of passion fruit on top of the vanilla mousse. leave it to set in the fridge.

Passion fruit glaze

if you want to add a little extra, you can do the glaze on top.

150g passion fruit puree
20g sugar
1 sheet of gelatine (2g per sheet)

gelatine in cold ice water, till soften.
warm the passion fruit puree and sugar, and mix till is fully melted. and wait for it to become a little warm before you pour it over the passion fruit mousse.
