PASSION FRUIT

We were back at Hubby's home town, recently, just at Langgar, Alor Setar :D ...... , and I saw this PASSION FRUIT at the back yard. For more than thirty years now I have not tasted them...and so glad I did today. Locally known as BUAH MARKISA.

Some infor below, from the net, regarding this fruit.

Passion Fruits are great for use in soft drinks or cocktails. The fruits grow on a climbing plant which is also well known for its beautiful flowers.Cut the passion fruits in halves. Remove the pulp and squeeze and stir it through a sieve to extract the pure juice. Add syrup to taste. Add ice cubes. If too strong, dilute with water, or wait for the ice cubes to melt.

Serve it either chilled and straight away or in a chilled glass* with salted rim.

NOTES:

This smoothie requires either stored in the chiller section of the fridge or served straight away. The natural sugars in the fruits start fermenting (totally safe and natural process); but this makes it taste sour.

*To chill glass, fill with ice-cubes and store in the freezer for about 10 mins. Shake out the ice-cubes, dip the rim of the glass in Salt and serve the smoothie in it. Tastes excellent with salted rim.

Do you have sleepless nights? Try Passion Fruit smoothie!! Tangy and highly aromatic passion fruit pairs well with the sweetness and buttery texture of Mango in this smoothie.

Passion fruit is high in somniferous properties; when had before going to bed helps relax and gives a restful sleep. It is also rich Vitamin C & A, Iron and Potassium, and an excellent source of fibre if consumed with the seeds. The seeds that are covered in the yellow gooey gelatinous flesh is also eatable.
