If you have a recipe that calls for anything citrus you can exchange the juice of that citrus fruit with passion fruit puree in equal amounts. A lemon meringue pie can easily be made into a passion fruit meringue pie. An orange flavored ice cream can be made into a passion fruit ice cream. A lime custard can become a passion fruit custard. You get the idea. Most of the citrus recipes call for zest from the fruit to bring the flavor of the fruit out and add a bit of texture or color. Passion fruit has such a strong flavor that you don’t need the zest. However, if you want it for texture or color, I find that lime zest pairs well with the passion fruit flavor.
Now, the opposite is a little bit harder. If you are looking for your recipe to have the taste of passion fruit and you don’t have any actual passion fruit, it is nearly impossible to get that same flavor. However, if you don’t mind making the recipe with a different flavor you can exchange out the passion fruit juice for any kind of citrus juice 1:1. Lemon is most frequently used but I have found that blood orange, lime, or grapefruit work well too.
If you have asked this question, then you must need some passion fruit puree. Our passion fruit puree is 100% pure. We don’t add any sugar or water to it. We simply juice the fruit, pasteurize the juice to make it shelf stable, and bottle it. Because our puree is pasteurized it can be kept in your pantry for up to one year from the date of purchase.
