Many people know how to make passion fruit juice, but few really know how to pulpe or add flavor to the drink. Adding fresh spices or fruits to the beverage is one way to do this! Having an assortment of dried and fresh berries, cinnamon sticks, and/or limes can be used to mix into the drink.
Making your own additions will ensure that none of these ingredients are missing and that the taste you want is in no doubt. Some recipes call for just adding sugar, so it is not limited to only drinking purposes.
There are many ways to blend berry flavors into the drink, such as using whole berries or pureeing them first. The amount needed varies depending on the strength of berry flavor you would like to have. A strong fruity flavor can be over-done, so start small and test different amounts to find what works best for you.
Another way to add some depth is by mixing inyields of pulp from the lime or other citrus used to make the drink. This adds another layer of flavor and texture! If you enjoy thse additionsthen why not try making your own? It is very easy to do and will result in delicious drinks.
Reminder: Just because it says “passion”fruit does not mean it cannot be drunk straight! Most people use it when eating breakfast or dessert due to its sweet flavor.
Peel the passion fruit
The next step in processing your passion fruits is to peel them! This will remove some of the skin, but also add some flavor to the pulp. You can either use a very soft washable brush or spoon to scrape off most of the peel, or you can use special equipment that does it for you.
There are two main types of passion fruit peelers. The first uses a mesh sieve which filters out some parts of the peel, leaving some white strands behind as well as small pieces. These can be washed and dried properly and then used like regular sugar granules to add flavor to foods.
The second type removes all of the peel completely, leaving only thin strips behind. These must be placed in an acid solution to dissolve down into liquid form, and then saved for later use.
We recommend using the second type of peeler if you want to keep the whole process simple.
Boil the fruit
Once your passion fruits are in season, you can start preparing them for use! The best way to remove the pulp is by boiling it first. You will want to add some sugar or sweetener to balance out all of the tart flavor that has been soaked up during processing.
You may like to mix in some fresh lemon juice as well to keep the texture consistent. When using freshly prepared passion fruit pulp, make sure to stir it properly so that it does not burn in the mixture.
Once everything is mixed together, spoon the pulp into a glass jar and cover with an additional layer of dried passion fruit powder to prevent oxidation. This will preserve the taste longer if you plan on storing the pulp somewhere cold later.
Use the pulp
After you have removed the white pith from your passion fruit, you can either discard it or use it as another ingredient in a recipe. The dried down white part of the peel is called pith, and some say that it has health benefits like improving skin quality and acting as an anti-inflammatory agent.
You can add the pith to water and drink it or cook it and eat it. When cooking, heat up very slowly so it does not burn. You may also want to simmer it for a bit to make it more soft and ingestible.
Some people even bake with the pith to get its possible benefits. It will take away some flavor, but that can be covered by adding other ingredients or making it into a smoothie.
If you love passion fruits after reading this article, then try putting the leftover pith in your mouth! Some say it tastes similar to coconut. We know they are not, but it might taste different to each person.
Mix the juice with other fruits
One of your favorite pulp recipes is passion fruit water, which includes one cup of passion fruit puree plus two cups of water. You can add more or less liquid depending on how thick you want the drink!
This delicious beverage can be mixed together at once and then poured into a glass. It can also be made in advance and refrigerated until it’s needed.
You will need to let the mixture sit for about half an hour to make sure all the ingredients have combined properly.
Freeze the juice
Another way to use passion fruit is by freezing it in your freezer first and then thaw and drink it later! This can be done either with just the liquid or adding some type of milk to make it more delicious.
If you would like to add some flavor, you can add sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and/or cream to the mixture before freezing. Once frozen, stir the pieces of passion fruit together and place in an airtight container.
Drink this pulp-freezed beverage within one month for best results.
Make passion fruit butter
Let your sweet tooth come to the rescue by making passion fruit butter! This delicious spread is made of pure butter, fresh passion fruits, and agave nectar, so it’s totally respectable.
If you have leftover pulp from preparing the passion fruits, then don’t throw that out! Add it to your passion fruit butter and try to stir it into the melted butter. You can either eat it right away or store in an airtight container for up to one week.
You will want to use a fork to mix the ingredients together since the texture can be slightly liquid.
