Posset is a sweet dessert with a creamy consistency somewhat reminiscent of curdled milk. It is made by combining cream with sugar and fruit juice. The juices most often used in this dessert are lemon, lime and passion fruit, but in general, you can use juice from most tart and citrus fruits. This dessert is simple to make and not very time-consuming, but you have to wait a few hours before you can enjoy its taste, because after preparation it must be cooled in the refrigerator so that it can thicken properly. It is best to prepare the posset in the evening so that you can enjoy it the next day. This fruit dessert is perfect for birthdays and name days, and it also works great on a sweet table as a mini dessert. I encourage you to try the recipe for passion fruit posset below and enjoy.

Remove the hot cream with sugar from the heat, pour the passion fruit juice into it and stir with a spoon until the liquid begins to thicken a little. At that point, add the lime juice and continue stirring for about 30 seconds. Next pour the liquid into dessert cups and place them in the fridge for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight. After removing it from the fridge, decorate the dessert with passion fruit pulp and fresh mint leaves.
