WHB # 60 - The Passion of Fruits

>> Friday, November 24, 2006

WHB is coming to Melbourne, my city, this weekend. It is hosted by the gorgeous Haalo of Cook (almost) Anything at least once. Do check out her blog for mouthwatering pics. They are adorable!

For this week, my main feature is passionfruit. I simply fall in love with passionfruit since my previous try on using it in cupcakes. The natural tartness provides lovely taste to various dessert creations. I cannot recall one dessert with passionfruits that I don’t like. Guess that the tiny fruit has captured my heart.

A bit of information about passionfruit. The fruits are good source of fibre, vitamin C and potassium. The black seeds are perfectly edible. Oh ya, before I forget! Just repeat from my previous post on passionfruit. It is said that after eating the fruit, you will fall in love with the next person you meet… True or not? I will let you discover for yourself. ;-)

This time round, I use passionfruits to make simple Frozen Passionfruit Yoghurt. It is lovely for those extremely hot days that we have in Melbourne recently. And guess what, it is quite healthy compared with ice-cream. Nice summers treat indeed!

Frozen Passionfruit Yoghurt

Recipe from Australian Woman Weekly



110g castor sugar

1/4 cup (60ml) water

1 tsp gelatine

2 cups (560g) yoghurt

1/2 cup (125ml) passionfruit pulp


  1. Stir sugar and water in small pan over low heat until sugar dissolved. Transfer to medium jug.
  2. Sprinkle galantine over the syrup, stir until gelatine dissolves
  3. Combine yoghurt and pulp in jug with syrup. Pour yoghurt mixture into loaf pan, cover tightly with foil. Freeze for 3 hours or until almost set. Scrape yoghurt from bottom and sides of pan with fork; cover return to freezer until firm.

Anh, so have you fallen in love with the next person you met? *wink*

Oh yes, I received your comments on my WHB post, but somehow I couldn't publish it. Not sure what's wrong with Blogger, I'll try to sort it out. Thanks for your comments :)

I've never tasted this and it looks so delicious. I wish we were having hot weather so we could eat frozen treats like you're making.

Please do keep us posted on the falling in love part of the recipe!
