Featuring: Passion Fruit Puree

You may be asking, “what is a budino?” I know when I first heard the word I didn’t even know if it was a food much less a delicious dessert. It turns out, a Budino is a sweet Italian dish, usually rich and creamy like a custard or pudding. This recipe won’t disappoint. It has a rich and creamy texture along with the tangy flavors of Passion Fruit and Lemon. I chose to serve it cold with a passion fruit whip cream.
