Types of Passion fruits

In South and Central America they call the bigger yellow passion fruit; Maracuya. This yellow version of passion fruit is way more present than the purple one. In South America, they make ceviche, cocktail, cheesecake and ice cream with it, a fairly common fruit. In contrast with the northern countries, where it can get tricky to find those deliciously perfumed fruits.

How to choose the right passion fruit

Whether you found a yellow or purple variety, make sure it sounds full by shaking it, and just like avocados, don’t dare open a firm, polish one. You need it to be slightly wrinkled to get to the sweet juice! The seeds are perfectly good to eat, if not beneficial to your health but if you prefer smoother result, simply strain the passion fruit.

So let’s make those tropical flavors emerge!

    How very tropical! Perfect for summer. Panna cotta is one of my family’s favourite desserts.

  3. I love panna cotta, and I think the passion fruit adds a nice balance to it ! Looks lovely ! Thanks for sharing the recipe !

  4. This is so pretty! I’ve never had panna cotta and I clearly need to rectify that. I love the passion fruit jelly. It adds such a unique flair.

    What a beautifully made (and beautifully photographed!) dessert. I love that you let the passion fruit shine by putting it on top like that. I think it’s such a bold, delightful flavour that it really deserves to be given the starring role. Well done!

    • If you don’t find passion fruit, pineapple is great on top too, and keep the dish tropical;) You won’t regret to try, plus it’s so easy.
