This passion fruit popsicle recipe with guava is filled with so much exotic, tropical flavor.
It’s one of my favorite popsicles to be honest.
This one is another simple recipe with just three ingredients:
- passion fruit pulp
- guava puree
- a sweetener.
I did guava pineapple popsicles before and used the same guava puree in it.
The puree is from a couple months ago during guava season.
My mom had such a large batch that she peeled and juiced everything and froze them in ice trays.
She sent me home with about two dozen cubes. Over time, they got a little freezer burn but they still taste great. And freezing doesn’t really affect the vitamin C content in the juice.
That’s amazing news considering guava is one of the richest food sources of Vitamin C.
For this recipe, I used 3 cubes which worked up to about 3 ounces of guava puree.
As for the passion fruits, I picked them up at my local farmers’ market. They seemed to be in season so I got 10 fruits for about $3. Usually, they’ll be 4 fruits for $3. But no complaints here! I love me some good passion fruit juice.
I used the pulp of 4 fruits here and made passion fruit juice.
For the sweetener, I used sugar cane juice also purchased at the farmers’ market. The juice spoils quickly so I poured it into ice trays to freeze. Since guava and passion fruit juice are sour, I had to use close to eight cubes (8 ounces) of the juice! Luckily, sugar cane juice has some health benefits, besides being sweet.
With the ingredients, you know the drill: blend, strain, mix, pour in popsicle molds and freeze. Done! Easy peasy!
