What is Passion Fruit and How to Juice It

Passion fruit is an edible fruit of the passion flower. It is usually very tart and has a very distinct sweet smell. It is also know as maracuya, parcha, marquisa and konyal. Passion fruit is used in many things like cheesecakes, mousses, muffins and sauces. Passion fruit is very easily turned into juice as you can see in this video. All you need to do is cut the fruit in the middle, scoop out the fruit and place it in a blender. There is no need to blend the fruit for too long – in fact it will be ready very quickly. You have to be careful not puree the seeds.

Once you have the juice you will have to strain it. If you want to make juice to drink simply add about 1 cup of pure juice to a pitcher. Fill it with water and sweeten it with syrup or sugar. Taste it to see if you need to add more passion fruit or sugar. Mix well and enjoy. I love to mix it with freshly squeezed orange juice. Delish!
