It’s totally possible to make your own passion fruits at home! This will save you some money as well since you won't need to buy them pre-made or from a specialty food store. Plus, you'll get to enjoy all the wonderful flavor variations of passion fruit that exist!
Something interesting about passion fruits is that there are two types depending on what area of the fruit people eat it off of. Some people like to eat it off of the stem while others prefer eating it directly off of the skin. The best way to determine which one you want to try is by trying both ways and seeing which one feels better for you.
Cut the passion fruit into pieces
Once you have your piece of equipment ready, it’s time to cut the passion fruits! You can either use a knife or an appliance called a pulper. A good way to do this with a knife is using a steady hand and cutting along the seam between the top and bottom parts.
For the more experienced user, there are some appliances that can be used to achieve this goal as well. For example, a powerful blender such as a Vita-Mix can sometimes be used to produce pureed foods. By adding in ingredients like pulp and water, cooked food can be made!
There are several different ways to make sure no seeds get mixed in when eating the passion fruit halves. Some people choose to remove the seedy part and then just scrape off the white cream inside, while others choose to only eat the cream because they don’t want any seeds.
Bring the pieces to the kitchen sink
Once you have your piece of passion fruit, bring it to the kitchen sink or another bowl that you can use to wash all of its parts. This will prevent any dried out pieces or strings that may remain after washing.
After rinsing off the passion fruits in the sink or other vessel, cut each one in half using a sharp knife. Now, pick through and remove the seeds, leaving just the white pulp!
This process can be done in batches if necessary, but make sure to keep each part separate until you are finished with all of them. You can then refrigerate the pulp for later use or bag it up and freeze it for future recipes.
Once everything is cleaned and separated, you now have enough pure passion fruit juice to do some baking with! Keep reading to learn more about how to bake with passion fruit juice.
Drop the pieces into water
The next step is to drop your passion fruit halves into some water! This will help wash off any residue or butter that may remain, as well as refresh the taste of the fruit.
After you have done this, either use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and discard (or save them for making jelly) or use a knife to cut it in half down the middle, then pull each half apart to separate the cream from the flesh.
Once everything has been cleaned, roll the inner membrane up like a strip and put it in the freezer until solid, where you can easily slice it up and discard.
The white foam left over after cutting the passion fruits can be saved and mixed with salt and sugar to make fluffelle or meringue, which are both delicious toppings for things such as ice creams or cakes.
Let the pieces sit in the water for a few minutes before draining
Once you have cut all of your passion fruits, either can be done! Either drain the juice and reserve it or discard the seeds and just mix them into something sweet like yogurt or milk.
If you are making a recipe that calls for some of the pulp left over, you can pour off some of the liquid and add it back into the recipe. It will change the texture slightly, but not enough to make much difference.
Once again, depending on what kind of flavor you want to taste, you can either save or discard this part. If there is no specific ingredient called for in the recipe, leave it out.
Pour the passion fruit pieces into a bowl of sugar to make a sweet and sour fruit dip
If you are having trouble removing all the seeds, wash your hands well and then scrape off the seeds with a spoon or spatula. Then, either pour the remaining pulp in the seeding container or use it as an ingredient in the aforementioned dip!
That way, you won’t have leftover bits of seed stuck under your nails which would be ugly, but also difficult to remove.
Serve passion fruit pieces with crudités for a snack
Many recipes call for fresh passion fruits, but they are not always in abundance or even if they are, you do not want to waste them. Luckily, we have some great tips here for how to cut your own passion fruits!
The first thing is to make sure that you wash your hands thoroughly before cutting each individual fruit. This will prevent any potential germs from contaminating the flesh of the fruit.
After this, dry the skin of the passion fruit by using either a paper towel or by placing it under a fan. Then, use a sharp knife to carefully slice between the two halves. Make sure to press down firmly as you cut so that the juice does not leak out.

Peel passion fruit before eating
Now that you have them, your next step is to peel each one of these fruits! This can be done with either cold water or using your hand. Using your hands works best if you have someone else who wants some passion fruit so they can do it for themselves.
Using an ingredient sieve will also help remove excess pulp and sugar from the peeled passion fruit. After this, simply cut the top off and enjoy!
Once you’ve eaten all the seeds, just wash the rest and keep them in the fridge until the next time you want to make something sweet like yogurt or pudding.
