There are several variations of passion fruit syrup that differ in intensity and amount of added sugars. This article will talk about how to make our favorite type of passion fruit syrup here at Healthier Chocolate Worlds.
Prepare your passion fruit juice
The next step in making passion fruit syrup is to prepare the liquid that will be mixed into the sugar. You can use fresh or dried passion fruits depending on whether you would like it to have more flavor, nor difference.
If using dried fruits, make sure to soak them first in water for at least an hour to re-hydrate before processing. This way, they’ll taste less salty and the sweet intensity will last longer while being mixed with the liquid.
When using dried fruits, never add additional water as this could cause the gel pieces to break down and dissolve. Only stir them around until dry! If adding glucose or sucrose (regular white sugar) then these will not affect the color or flavor of the final product.
Regular table sugar may be added after the mixture has sat still for one week to allow for complete separation of the components. Depending on the consistency desired, you can whisk or shake the mixture to achieve this.
Should there are leftover bits of pulp, these can be saved and dried and used later in other recipes. Simply roast them in a 250°F (120ºC) oven for about 30 minutes to remove some of their moisture and store in a sealed container.
Note: As mentioned above, if using raw honey instead of refined sugar, let the finished syrup sit for an extra half hour to ensure all of the ingredients combine properly.
Make the passion fruit syrup
While making passion fruit syrup is not difficult, it does take some time to process all of the ingredients properly. Because there are no hard and soft settings in sugar processing, burets, or white sugar can be used instead of regular sugar! This article will tell you how to make vanilla passion fruit syrup using both recommendations.
When baking with cream of any kind (like butter or milk) use cool liquids for the recipe. Melted chocolate may burn due to its high temperature when mixed with hot liquid. Similarly, melted honey may solidify when poured into cold liquid. To prevent this, let the mixture come down slowly in temperatures so that it can melt and mix properly.
This recipe makes about one cup of passion fruit syrup. It takes about an hour to process everything completely, so start early and keep up with the rhythm of the processor. Once done, your passion fruit syrup will stay fresh for about two weeks in a sealed container.

There are many ways to make passion fruit syrup, so we will go over several different recipes here. After reading this article, you will know how to make passion fruit juice, sugar infused vinegar, and plain old refined sugar syrup.
What is passion fruit juice?
Passion fruit juice is the liquid that comes from eating the flesh of the passion fruits. It is typically pressed using utensils such as cups or filters to create the puree, then strained into another container.
The color and acidity of the passion fruit juice depends on the variety of passion fruit used. Some have thinner skinned fruits which result in slightly less intense colors and acids. And others have thicker skins, which contribute more to both intensity-wise.
It is important to remember that just because one type of passion fruit has a higher price tag does not mean it is better than others. The taste and texture can be different depending on the varietal.
Storing passion fruit juice can also vary depending on the intended use.
Try adding passion fruit to other fruit juices
While making passion fruit syrup is technically not that difficult, it can easily be left out or done wrong, which will prevent you from having delicious drinks! That is why there are some basic tips here for making passion fruit syrup.
Firstly, make sure your passion fruits are ripe. If they are soft then they have over-ripened and should be put aside until they harden. Make sure to check this quickly as they will go bad if left too long.
Once you have found a source of fresh passion fruits, wash them first to remove any dirt or residual sugars. This way, their juice will taste better and contain less sugar.
Now, cut each passion fruit in half and use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and white pulp. You do not need these, but some of it may solidify when boiling down so save it for later.
Put the seeded passion fruit flesh into a pan with water and cook for around five minutes. The liquid will reduce and thicken slightly.
After this time, add honey and lemon juice (or lime) and mix together. This will create our passion fruit syrup.
The ratio of passion fruit to liquid needed varies depending on how much syrup you want to make. We usually recommend using one cup of dried passion fruit per one cup of liquid used.
That means if you wanted just enough syrup for a drink, you would need to start with two cups of liquid.

Video tutorial: How to Make Fruit Syrups
Making fruit syrups is a lovely way to enjoy fresh fruits in desserts or as an easy dessert recipe! They are especially helpful if you are limited on time, like when you just woke up or are busy during the week.
Many people make yogurt-based sauces using plain old milk as the liquid but we will be changing that formula here. We will use sweetened coconut milk as our liquid instead of regular milk.
Coconut milk can easily be made at home so why not try your hand at it? There are several recipes for making it, some even have different brands of canned coconut milk where they list how many grams of fat per one cup serving. Some have you mix it with water first before adding the sugar! This does not matter too much unless you want a thinner syrup.
But remember, no matter which brand you choose, stay within guidelines on saturated fats. That means do not add too much sugar to your drink or chocolate sauce will not set correctly.
Definitions of fruit sugar, corn syrup, and glucose
Glucose is the most common form of sugar found in nature. It’s sometimes called plain old “glucose” but you should always be careful what types of glucoes you call “plain.”
The word “glucose” comes from two greek words that mean “sweetening agent” and “agent.” Therefore, glucose is a sweetening agent or crystallizable carbohydrate that people use to taste-test foods and beverages.
When your mouth senses glucose, it becomes pleasantly stimulated and thus gives us a feeling of satisfaction and happiness. For this reason, we often refer to it as “healthy” sugar because it helps balance out other sugars that may not be so healthy.
Most fruits contain enough glucose for us to enjoy them directly as food. However, when they are raw, their texture can be slightly annoying (like eating a piece of bread) due to the natural gelatin in their flesh. This makes them difficult to chew and swallow which can cause some amount of gastrointestinal discomfort or even stomach ache.
So how do we make sure these negative effects are minimized? By adding something extra to the fruit –– our favorite flavor!
Passion fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C and contains about 1% glucose. Because glucose is already present in passion fruits, making passion fruit syrup is one way to reduce the uncomfortable effect of eating a fresh passion fruit.
How to make fruit sugar
Making passion fruit syrup is a great way to do this! You will need 1 cup of fresh or dried fruits, 2 cups of water, and 4 tablespoons of granulated sugar for every one cup of liquid you want your syrup to have.
The process begins by mashing the pieces of fruit together in a pot using a potato masher or fork. Then, add the water and stir until the mixture comes together into a paste-like consistency.
At this stage, you can either let the mixture sit and ferment and thicken naturally, or use a blender to mix it with the sugar. When adding the sugar, try mixing it in as slowly as possible to achieve the right balance of sweetness.
After the sugar has been mixed in, continue boiling the mixture over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until it reaches your desired thickness.
When it’s done, test the strength of the syrup by pouring some onto a plate. If it dries out and looks slightly crystallized, then it’s okay!
Transfer the syrup to glass jars and store in the refrigerator or freezer until used. It will keep up to two months in the fridge and six months in the freezer.
