Mango Passion Fruit Tiramisu Cups

Passion fruit is one of those fruits that are not easily available everywhere. Even if they are, they may be expensive. Passion fruit requires warmer climates to grow well. So you will see them in abundance in tropical climates such as Hawaii or Florida, and California grows a fair share of passion fruits too. 

 

The fruit by itself can be quite sour, but they truly make the best desserts in my opinion! Rincon Tropics, based in Southern California is a farm that grows passion fruit, and they have been generous enough to send me a few boxes in the past. Their passion fruits have a lot of fruit and smell AMAZING! 

 

You can actually remove all the pulp from the ripe fruit, store it in deli containers in the freezer. It will stay good upto a year! You can also get passion fruit puree from Mexican grocery stores – I have done that as well.

One of my favorite boba drinks to get is a mango passion fruit boba, usually with mango jelly or passion fruit boba in it. Inspired by this boba drink, I came up with this Mango Passion Fruit Tiramisu Cups! Although the recipe calls for 4 8 oz glasses, they can be made smaller to serve a party of 6.

 

The passion fruit curd can be made a day ahead. The rest is truly easy to assemble in half an hour really. 

 

PASSION FRUIT CURD

The ingredients of the passion fruit curd are:

  • Passion Fruit Puree : You can extract the pulp, strain it and get the puree or you can even get the frozen puree from Mexican grocery stores.
  • Lemon Juice: Always use fresh lemon juice. The bottled stuff is no good.
  • Granulated Sugar: I use regular C&H granulated sugar here.
  • Egg Yolks: Always save the egg yolks if you are using only the egg whites and freeze them in a deli container. Put a date on it. You never know when you may need to use it. To make it eggless, use 2 tablespoons cornstarch instead.
  • Vanilla extract: for added flavor.
  • Unsalted Butter: to make the curd smooth and set it as well.

JASMINE GREEN TEA

The brand of Jasmine Green Tea that I use is the Numi Brand and I get it from Amazon, linked here. You can get tea bags too, and use 2 of the tea bags for the quantity needed. I love this tea, and I use it all the time to make my afternoon teas!

 

For the mango pulp, be sure to use ripe mangoes, if you are making the pulp by yourself. I always squeeze out as much pulp as possible from the seed as well by squeezing the seed between your fingers and palm.

 

The best mango pulp is the Indian Alfonso Mango Pulp that I get from the Indian grocery store. You can also get it online on Amazon. That pulp has the best taste.

MANGO WHIPPED FILLING

The ingredients of the mango whipped filling are:

  • Heavy Cream: Heavy cream provides a lovely silky velvety texture to the final filling.
  • Mascarpone: Classic Tiramisu has mascarpone. I get the tub from Trader Joe’s which is the most economical in my opinion.
  • Mango Puree: The mango puree that I add is the Alfonso mango puree that I get from the Indian grocery stores, but feel free to puree your own mangoes. Make sure the mango is ripe. A good variety is the Champagne or the Kent Mangoes.
  • Vanilla extract: I always love adding flavor in the form of vanilla extract.
  • Powdered Sugar: The powdered sugar variety is C&H that I use.

ASSEMBLY

The assembly is really straightforward once you have the passion fruit curd, the jasmine green tea and the mango whipped filling all ready to go.

 

Simply take glasses and pipe the mango whipped filling, which is in a 16 inch pastry bag fitted with a round piping tip, at the bottom of the glass. Then add the lady finger dipped in the jasmine green tea. 

 

Next comes more whipped filling, passion fruit curd and mango bits. We add the lady fingers again and then the filling to finish it off. 

 

If you choose to fill smaller glasses, then the layers will be fewer per glass. Evenly distribute all the components between the smaller glasses.

 

These Mango Passion Fruit Tiramisu Cups come together so quickly, are super easy, and SO DELICIOUS AND FUN TOO!
