As you know, passion fruits are beautiful in shape and size! They typically have an oval or spherical shape and contain one to several (sometimes many) small seeds within. When consuming a passion fruit, make sure to remove the skin first!
The skin of a passion fruit contains a compound called tannin, which gives it its vibrant color as well as some health benefits. However, this natural pigment can cause stomach issues for some people.
There are two main ways to eat your passion fruit: either alone or with the seed. If you’re more experienced in eating habits, then eating just the pulp is acceptable. But if you are not quite used to that texture yet, removing the seed is the better way to go.
Peel passion fruit
Now that you have your passion fruits, you will want to start eating them! Unfortunately, there is no specific way to eat passion fruit due to its skin. The skin contains a compound called glycosides which are mostly taste-neutral but may leave an aftertaste in your mouth.
Some people like this flavor more than others, so try scraping off some of the peel or none at all before eating the inside.
Chop or slice passion fruit
Now, you can either eat the seeds directly like nuts or use thin plastic knives to cut through the skin of the fruits to get at the fleshy pulp that surrounds it.
The best way to consume passionfruit is by slicing it in half lengthwise and then eating the inner pulp with its natural sweetness.
You can also add some of the sweet cream to taste if you desire. It will naturally sour as you chew down on the juice and flavor of the fruit.
This article does not contain an entry level task for doing this process, but instead gives more information about how to prepare passionfruit in different ways.
Combine with other fruit
Most people eat their passion fruits right after they are picked, but you can either mix them into another food or enjoy them as is! Either way, if you love passion fruits then investing in a good knife to cut them up is worth it!
If you like eating your berries mixed into something else, try adding some to your plain oatmeal or add them to your morning yogurt for an extra boost of flavor and nutrition. You can also blend them into fresh drinks or use them in recipes such as jams and toppings for waffles and pancakes.
Use as a sweet and sour fruit sauce
Many people use passion fruits in one of two ways – either as an easy to make delicious dessert or as a tangy fresh ingredient to be mixed into other foods.
If you have ever tried passion fruit before, you probably noticed that they look like little green spheres with white dots on them. When pressed, most of the time they will just bounce off without breaking down. This is because there are seeds inside!
However, when done properly, eating a passion fruit can be quite fun. You can either eat it all at once or layer it onto another flavor source. Either way, taste is its own reward!
Try it in cocktails
Most people know passion fruit as that delicious tropical citrus fruit with sweet, tangy taste and beautiful bright color. But what many don’t realize is that you can add it to your diet!
Many recipes call for fresh passion fruits, but they also make dried powder versions. Both have different uses, so we will go over those here!
Drinking them either plain or mixed into a glass of water is one way to enjoy this lovely flavor.
But adding it to other foods is an excellent alternative because it can be low calorie and/or keto friendly! And some are even said to help promote weight loss due to its high vitamin C content.
So how does everyone like to eat their passion fruit? We have fun ways to prepare it and find new dishes to include it in.
Most people just wash the seeds first and then mix it with sugar and syrup and drink it like juice. This isn’t too healthy though since the extra liquid may cause stomach issues for some.
We have two great alternatives that don’t require drinking the whole thing! You can soak the seeds in cream or milk first and then blend them until smooth.
Try it as a dessert
People are constantly finding new ways to eat passion fruit. It is most commonly eaten either as an ingredient in recipes or as a garnish for drinks, desserts, or snacks.
As we know, anyone can enjoy eating fruits and vegetables, so why not make something delicious out of passion fruit?
Many people add the seeds to yogurt or use them in drinks or desserts as a flavor boost. When buying passion fruit, make sure it does not look overly dried- there should be enough liquid inside to recognize when it has been opened.
But what if you want to taste the true potential of this beautiful tropical berry? Then how should you consume it?
There are two main modes of intake that depend on whether you like tangy or sweet flavors.
Try it as a jam
While most people know what passion fruit is, few know how to eat it properly. Most have never seen anyone eat it that way before! Luckily for you, we are giving you all the information here so that you can do just that.
Many recipes call for adding the pulp of the passion fruits into your food or eating it right off the skin. Both of these ways may not taste very good and probably won’t set well either.
We will teach you two easy ways to eat this juicy tropical fruit. First, try frying the seeds in oil until they brown slightly and then removing them from the heat. Let them cool completely and mix with your favorite yogurt or use in a recipe.
The second way to enjoy this delicious berry is by mixing it into a dessert like our Chocolate Chip Cookies with Tropical Spread. Or simply spread it onto toast and top it with your choice of butter or cream cheese.
Try it as a butter
While eating passion fruits is typically eaten straight from the fruit, you can also eat them in other ways. One way to do this is to cut off some of the white fleshy part and mix it into melted butter or cream like we did with the avocado toast!
Alternatively, you could add it to your yogurt or use it in another recipe. It will taste slightly tangy which makes it perfect!
It is important to wash each one thoroughly before mixing it into something else. This removes any residues that may have dried onto the skin.
