If you haven’t enjoyed a passion fruit smoothie yet, what are you waiting for?
Forget the fact that it’s rich with antioxidants and a great source of fiber. But it is said to also enhance digestion, improve eyesight, boost. And the kicker, it tastes great too!
This bright yellow fruit is native to tropical America. But you don’t have to jump on a plane to the Caribbean or South America. You should be able to find it fairly easily in your local supermarket’s produce section.
Passion fruit is very popular outside of the USA. Because of this, it goes by many names; maracuya, maracuja, parcha and chinola to name a few. Passion fruit is primarily enjoyed in two ways. You can cut it in half and eat the pulp, seeds and all after scooping it straight out of the shell. And if needed, simply add some sweetener or cream to cut the tardiness of the passion fruit.
Or an increasingly popular and quicker way to enjoy passion fruit is in the form of passion fruit pulp or pulpa de maracuya. It truly is absolutely delicious when using it in your favorite passion fruit smoothie recipe. You can create your own concoction and add other tropical fruits as desired.
But it can also be used in all kinds of desserts like passion fruit cheesecake, flan, mousse and more. Or how about in your agua fresca, mixed with you favorite fruit juices or dare we say, even in your favorite cocktail. Bottom line is passion fruit is both delicious and nutritious. Might as well reap the health benefits and enjoy, cheers!
