Combine the strained juice with the soft ball sugar mix and place back on the heat. Bring to 112˚once more. Measure out 40ml of the liquid and freeze the remainder
Place the egg whites into a food processor and whisk until they form soft peaks. Add the passion fruit base into the bowl and gently mix together until it is all incorporated, being careful not to remove all the air from the mixture

Spoon into the moulds and level off the top with a palette knife. Bake in the oven for 7 minutes or until risen
