Our answer

Nigella's White Chocolate And Passionfruit Mousse (from NIGELLA SUMMER) has a light white chocolate mousse poured over fresh raspberries. The sharp passionfruit helps to cut through the rich sweetness of the chocolate, making it less cloying.

One ripe passionfruit usually yields around 2 tablespoons of juice, pulp and seeds, so 10 passionfruit would be 150mls or 150g (⅔ cup) of juice, pulp and seeds. However, if you are using a frozen or chilled passionfruit pulp then these normally have the seeds removed, so you would need around half of this amount of seedless pulp - 75mls or 75g (5 tablespoons). You will, of course, lose the texture that the seeds provide. Make sure that you are using a pure passionfruit pulp and not a sweetened juice or juice drink. Also note that some pulps are pasteurized and may not be as sharp as fresh passionfruit pulp, which could make the mousse slightly too sweet so you may want to taste the pulp first and sharpen it with a few drops of lime juice, if necessary.
