  • 4 ripe passion fruits, halved
  • 200g strawberries, chopped into halves


  • Line 4 heart-shaped couer à la crème molds with 4 muslin or cheesecloth squares.

  • In a large bowl, use a balloon whisk to gently whisk together the cream cheese, double cream, sugar and vanilla bean paste until thoroughly folded together.

  • Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly among the 4 lined molds. Gently fold the cloth over the filling, covering it completely.

  • Place the molds in a baking pan or a deep dish and set aside for at least 8 hours in the refrigerator.
