What Is Passion Fruit

Passion fruit natively comes from South America and in Hawaii is called lilikoi. It’s a very flavorful tart little fruit that comes from the passion flower and it can be used any dessert or other sweet item. I can’t think of any use of passion fruit in savory food. It’s mostly used in dessert and drinks. Passion fruit also has a bit of vitamin C and vitamin A in it but that’s kinda it. It just taste really good.

Should You Buy It Or Make It

Always, always, always make your own syrups. Unless its gum syrup, tonic syrup, or orgeat. Gum and orgeat you can make its just kinda a pain in the butt, and tonic I would never make from scratch. Passion fruit syrup is super easy to make, is cheaper to make than buying it, and results in a much better product.

Passion Fruit Syrup Substitutes

There are not really any substitutes for passion fruit syrup as it has such a unique taste. There is no single fruit it taste like but if I were to try and recreate it I would try combining a few flavors. I would try combining a Meyer Lemon juice, some kiwi juice and pineapple juice. Again there is nothing really like a passion fruit but those flavors could get you pretty close.
