Do you like Passion fruit? If you had asked me that two days ago I wouldn’t have been able to answer you because yesterday was the first time that I tasted it. It’s a very interesting fruit with its hard outer shell and the totally unexpected soft seed filled pulp inside that reminded me of soaked basil seeds. The passion fruits that I got were dark greenish brown in colour and were about the size of a big lime. They also grow in other colours and some grow to the size of oranges.
The sweet and sour taste of this fruit, that indicates its rich Vitamin C content, makes it just perfect for a cooling summer drink. A quick blend with a few other ingredients and your Passion Cooler is ready.
