Passion Fruit Drink

You want to know what's refreshing? Ice cold glasses of fresh passion fruit juice. It is the kind of juice you want after spending hours under the hot Caribbean sun during dry season and rushing inside looking for the perfect thing (after water of course) for a parched throat. You get your glass, you fill it to the brim and you drink it down without pausing for breath. There you go, refreshed!

I have been searching for these beautiful, yellow globes for sometime now and you don't see it growing wildly or domestically the way you once would. I simply love anything that reminds me of my childhood. It brings me back to a simpler time when we had access to a lot of things that were equal in health and deliciousness. Needless to say, I got a hold of a few and with a racing mind I began thinking of the many things I could create. My light bulb on a particularly hot day provided the simplest answer, "Passion Fruit Juice." So here we are and here's my recipe. I do hope you enjoy


3 medium ripe Passion Fruit

6 cups Water

2 1/2 cups Sugar 3 dashes Angostura Bitters (optional)


●Cut passion fruits in halves and scoop out pulp into a jug or a mixing bowl.

●Add 1/3 cup sugar and 1 cup water to jug and using swizzle stick or whisk and hand blend for 1 min or so, then strain.

●Using the same pulp repeat this process using 1/3 cup sugar and 1 cup of water 2 more times before discarding the pulp.

●Add the remaining sugar and water to juice and mix till sugar has dissolved.

●Do your taste test to ensure drink isn't too tart if it is feel free to add a bit more sugar sparingly and if it is too sweet add a bit more water.

●Complete by adding your Angostura bitters and you can serve either chilled or on ice. Enjoy.

Thanks for joining me for another version of Food Therapy and I hope to see you soon❤
