Passion fruit Banana Smoothie

Posted on Posted in recipes

Maybe you’ve heard of passion fruit, but if you have not, don’t worry, I’ll explain.

I first discovered passion fruit while in Colombia two years ago and I have been hooked ever since.

It is a type of fruit. The ones I’ve seen in South America have a yellow skin. Passion fruit has several names depending on which country you go to, such as granadilla, maracuja, mountain sweet cup, ceibey, parcha, lilikoi.

It looks gross but it’s not. It has a tarty taste. No sweetness.

On my recent trip to Rio, I was super excited to see passion fruit again. And it’s sooooo much cheaper (HEB sells the purple type for $2.99 each and it’s smaller in size)!
