Lilikoi aka Passion Fruit

After five rainy weeks the sun is back in Haiku. Flowers are blooming like crazy and it’s hot for the first time this summer.  Lilikoi are in season and I picked these guys up in the yard behind my house. They grow in a vine that runs high up in the branches of an avocado tree, and drop when they are just about ripe.

After juicing them I make “juice cubes” in my ice tray for later use.

To make a smoothie I put a cube in the blender with some mango, lime juice, and yogurt.  What a nice way to cool down 🙂
