What Is A Passion Fruit?
Passion fruit natively comes from South America, and in Hawaii, it is called lilikoi. It’s a very flavorful tart little fruit that comes from the passionflower, and it can be used in any dessert or other sweet item. I can’t think of any use of passion fruit in savory food. It’s primarily used in desserts and drinks. Passion fruit also has a bit of vitamin C and vitamin A, but that’s kind of it. It just tastes perfect.
Should I Buy Passion Fruit Syrup Or Make It?
Always make your own syrups unless it’s gum syrup, tonic syrup, or orgeat. Gum and orgeat you can make, but it’s just a pain in the butt and tonic I would never make from scratch. Passion fruit syrup is super easy to make, cheaper than buying it, and a much better product.
What Are Passion Fruit Syrup Substitutes?
There are no substitutes for passion fruit syrup as it has such a unique taste. There is no single fruit it tastes like, but if I were to try and recreate it, I would try combining a few flavors. I would try mixing a Meyer Lemon juice, some kiwi juice, and pineapple juice. Again there is nothing like passion fruit but those flavors could get you pretty close.
