Tips & Tricks

Let me give you a few tips to make sure your passion fruit lemonade is perfect every time!

  • If you have enough time, make the syrup yourself. Homemade always beats the bought version.
  • Use fresh lemon juice instead of bottled; it will make a big difference in taste. It might be more work but you’ll be glad you did!
  • Instead of using white sugar, use sugar cane syrup or other sweeteners that are not refined as much as white sugar because these have more flavor and fewer calories per teaspoon than regular granulated sugar does.
  • Make a big batch of this drink and keep it in the fridge for when you need a refreshing break from the heat!

How to store the Lemonade

It is best consumed within 24 hours of making, but it will last up to three days in the refrigerator. You can also freeze the Passion Fruit Lemonade and eat it as popsicles when you need something cool during those hot summer months!


Where do I find Passion Fruit?

You can find passion fruit at most grocery stores. They are usually located in the produce section, near the tropical fruits.

Can I use frozen passion fruit?

Yes, you can use frozen passion fruit for this recipe. Just make sure to thaw it out before using it!

When is Passion Fruit ripe?

They are ripe when they feel soft to the touch and have a fragrant aroma. You can also tell if they’re ripe based on their color: Ripe passion fruit will be a yellowish-orange hue with brown spots or streaks; unripe ones tend towards greenish tones with red spots or streaks. If you want to be sure, cut it open and see what the color inside pulp looks like – if there’s any green left, then it’s not ripe enough yet!

What does Passion Fruit taste like?

It has a unique flavor that is reminiscent of citrus fruits. The sweetness comes from natural sugars in the fruit itself (not added sugar), so you’ll find that this lemonade is not as tart as some other recipes might be. It’s also slightly sour, making it the perfect beverage for a hot day!

What tastes good with Passion Fruit?

Passion fruit goes well with various flavors, including vanilla, strawberry, raspberry, and banana. It also pairs nicely with other tropical fruits like mango or pineapple.

Can you serve Passion Fruit Lemonade over ice?

Yes! This drink is perfect for serving over ice on a hot day. 

Is Passion Fruit Lemonade alcoholic?

No, this recipe does not contain alcohol. If you’d like to make it alcoholic, though, I suggest adding white rum or vodka into the mix before blending! You can also use sugar syrup instead of granulated sugar, so there isn’t as much bitterness from the citrus juices when mixed with liquor.

Do I need to add sugar?

Yes, you can make lemonade without sugar. You can use some honey or agave nectar to sweeten it up. 

Are fresh lemons better than bottled lemon juice?

Yes! I love using freshly squeezed lemons myself because they just taste better than any other type of lemon juice! Freshly squeezed lemon juice has more flavor and less sugar than bottled juices. It also contains vitamin C, which helps boost your immune system during cold months like winter when many people get sick from the flu or other illnesses caused by viruses attacking our bodies.

What is Sugar Cane Syrup?

Sugar cane syrup is a sweetener made from sugarcane boiled down to a thick liquid. It contains more flavor than white sugar does, and it also has some nutritional value because it is a source of minerals like magnesium, potassium, and zinc. It also has a lower glycemic index than regular white sugar does, which means it doesn’t cause as big of a spike in blood sugar levels when consumed. Try using this syrup in place of white sugar to give your passion fruit lemonade recipe some extra flavor!
