My Aunt gave me a packet full of passion fruit picked straight from her vines. I couldn't resist making something yummy from these beautiful plump fruit...although eating straight out their shells was delicious too. They sat on my counter for a few days. Then on Saturday afternoon while preparing a potato bake to take off to Brazen's house I thought why not mix up some of the passion fruit juices with some pineapple juice and quickly place it in my ice cream machine for a quick-ish sorbet. 

So what started out being a sorbet - then I threw in some milk at the last minute to make it go further, (which means its no longer a sorbet as sorbet contains no dairy). I'm guessing this is milk ice as it DOESN'T have a custard base so I can't call it ice cream... YIP Milk Ice it is. And its DELICIOUS!

anything between 6 - 18 Passion fruit (Granadillas)
1 & a half cups Pineapple or Apple juice
2 tablespoons honey (vary to taste)
1 cup of milk
2 egg whites (organic if possible) BEATEN to medium peaks

Dissolve the honey in a tiny bit of the pineapple or apple juice by heating it slightly in a small saucepan on the stove and stirring until the honey has dissolved. Then place this little bit on the freezer to cool down.
Cut open your passion fruit and scoop out with a spoon into a bowl. If you don't want any pips in your Milk ice then sieve them out now or leave them in its up to you (I left about 2 passion fruts worth of pips in and sieved out the rest)
Now stir it in with the remaining juice and add the juice from the freezer once it has cooled a bit.
Stir in your cold milk from the fridge.
Freeze and mix in your ice cream machine or in a low dish in your freezer.
Add the all ready beaten egg whites.
Stir and freeze or serve immediately
Freezes well in a sealed container (I use CONSOL glass jars - preserving/ Mason jars) for roughly 6 weeks.

*if you don't have an ice cream machine and are freezing it in a dish = then beat the mixture and return to the freezer twice before adding egg whites

Beautiful for this heat we've been having
