Passionfruit lemonade

Last year we took bags of passionfruit to work, because we weren’t really fussed on them. I like the taste, but can’t be bothered with the seeds. Passionfruit is very high in vitamin C, so this refreshing drink is slightly less naughty than the bottled stuff. Adjust the water, sugar and fruit ratio depending on whether you like tart or sweet lemonade. Perhaps I should call it passionade?

Passionfruit lemonade

1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon and passionfruit juice, strain the seeds
3 cups of water
½ cup of white sugar

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a jug.
  2. Refrigerate for an hour.
  3. Add ice and garnish with mint to serve.

Notes: To make up one cup of juice I used 3 lemons and 7 passionfruits – but please just take these amounts as approximates. Use what you have. I also dissolved the sugar in one cup of boiling water first before adding the remaining cold water.

  1. Another idea is to use passionfruit in a smoothie (one does need a good blender to make the seeds into a puree). This is how I get my daily dose of fruit. Nothing like starting the day with a delightful combination of a fruit infused smoothie. 🙂
