I tried two recipes, and this was one of them. It tasted good, but it didn't set up. It was just creamy. I tried it again, adding gelatin, and it didn't set up then, either. My friend told me that there isn't enough acid in the passion fruit to help it set, so I modified this recipe and it turned out GREAT!
What I did was I added 1 can sweetened condensed milk to a blender . After straining 7-8 passion fruits through a sieve (I also added a tiny bit of water)(reserving the seeds for a topping), I put the passion fruit juice in the empty condensed milk can, and then added the juice of a lime (or lemon), until the can was a little over 1/2 full, and threw that in the blender. I also added heavy cream. It set up immediately, and it tasted great. I put the mousse in a bowl, and added the seeds to the top. I couldn't taste the lime at all. We ate half the bowl before it was chilled, but it definitely tasted better chilled.
