I discovered possets only recently, when I made a Lemon and Lavender version for my daughter’s 8th birthday party. I had never even heard of possets before, but when I read the recipe, I knew I would love them. It’s an English dessert that is perfect for tea time. Possets are quite similar to panna cotta, but they do not contain gelatin, which makes it a great option for all my vegetarian friends. The final result is something in between a mousse and a panna cotta: creamy and silky. After trying the lemon version, I started experimenting a bit with flavours and these Passion fruit Possets were amazing! I especially love that it only takes 5 minutes to make them. Try them and let me know!
Passion fruit Possets
Passion fruit Possets - a quick and delicious British creamy dessert with a touch of exotic.
- 600 ml – 2 ½ cups double cream
- 8 tbsp granulated sugar
- 110 ml – ½ cup cup passion fruit pulp
- 30 ml – 2 tbsp lemon juice
Put the double cream and sugar in a saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 2 or 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the passion fruit pulp and lemon juice.
Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours or until set.
Double cream is thick cream that contains about 45-48% of fat. Even though it is thick, it does not contain thickening agents or gelatin.

There is no indication of how much passion fruit is used in the recipe.
It’s in the ingredients list – 1/2 cup of passion fruit pulp. 🙂
Happy New Year!
