  • 2 large ripe mangoes
  • 4 passion fruits, halved
  • 2 x 150g/5oz tubs Greek yogurt (use low-fat if you prefer)
  • juice 1 lime



    The same shape, but smaller than…


  1. Peel the mangoes using a vegetable peeler. Slice the cheeks off one and cut into small dice. Set aside.

  2. Cut the flesh from the remaining mango and stone, then purée flesh in a liquidiser. Squeeze out the seeds from 2 of the passion fruit halves and mix with the mango purée. Add lime juice to taste. Gently fold the yogurt and half the diced mango through the fruity purée.

  3. Divide between 4 glasses and top with the remaining diced mango. Cover and chill for 30 mins before eating. Scoop the seeds from the remaining passion fruit over the top of the fools to serve.

I LOVE passion fruit so I was excited to try this but in the end I wasn't 100% on this dessert, I think the lime made it to bitter or tart, I added some sugar to sweeten it, but all in all I think I'll search for another passion fruit dessert to try.

Made this for Sunday lunch - or should I say the children (3 and 8) did! We kept tasting it for quality along the way (!) and I decided that, since I'd bought a lime, we should put zest in as well as the juice. We put the zest in first, it tasted really nice, then we added the juice, and it became somewhat bitter. We added some icing sugar to sweeten it. Two of the 6 who had it for lunch didn't finish it. I thought it was nice, if a little tart. IF I make it again, I shall put lime zest INSTEAD of the juice. I was doing the recipe as a tester for some mass catering I'm doing next month (cooking for 12), have decided this recipe isn't quite right for it and will probably do eton mess instead!

Very nice, very easy. I served this after a Chinese and it went down really well. I also added the zest of the lime as a garnish

Great flavour but mine was runny.

this was lovely first time I made it. 2nd time, I'd planned to use some mango puree I'd frozen but it tasted very bland when defrosted. I ended up using persimmons as my husband bought them instead of passion fruit by mistake (they were wrongly labelled).

Our recent USA visitors loved this, following a thai chicken curry. Refreshing without being too substantial. Followed the advice to use greek yoghurt, thank you, worked a treat. Recipe doubles well. Used Pakistan 'honey' mangoes from our local greengrocer - do try and get some - very buttery and delicious sweet flavour.

I really messed this up! I couldn't get hold of passion fruit, and then my mango was rotten when I cut it open, so I used strawberry jam and nectarines, it was lovely.

Just made this recipe tonight, it is absolutely gorgeous. Used Total 0% (fat free) Greek strained yoghurt, so creamy. The mango sweetens it up no end and the passion fruit adds a really tasty zing to it. Had to eat the 2nd one I'd made too! But all free on my diet. Guilt free pleasure.

A delicious, quick and easy recipe. Really refreshing and its amazing what a difference the lime juice makes to the taste. Will definately make it again and again.....
