I serve this when there are children around and they love it; given the amount of children now being stricken with type 2 diabetes, this dessert can become a staple sweet for you and yourchildren.


  • 250g passionfruit pulp (I use canned)

  • 250ml water

  • 2 tablespoons yellow box honey (leatherwood is good, too, if you like it)

  • 450ml low-fat pre-made custard

  • 400ml no-fat natural yoghurt


  • 1.

    Bring the passionfruit, water and honey to the boil. Simmer for at least 5 minutes, then cool.

  • 2.

    Whisk the custard and yoghurt together well and fold in the cooled passionfruit. Freeze in a 20cm loaf tin for 2 hours.

  • 3.

    Remove from freezer and spoon into food processor; work into a smooth paste, return to tin and freeze until solid and ready to use. If not using immediately, cover with cling wrap or a lid to prevent freezer flavours developing.

  • 4.

    Serve in balls shaped with an ice-cream scoop.


This recipe requries a minimum of 6 hours Freezer time.
