It’s Lenting season! For those of you who have chosen to give up alcohol, this mocktail is for you! And if you’re not a drinker, this is for you too!

Of course I’m and island gal and if a drink is going to be concoted by moi, it’s definitely going to have a tropical twist! Passion fruit isn’t grown in the U.S. and I’ve never seen the fresh imported fruit in grocery stores here in the states. Even the frozen nectar is a bit difficult to find, but I happen to shop in grocery stores where people of blended nations congregate.

This is an easy blend. The ratio of each fruit is absolutely your preference. I happen to prefer passion fruit so I used just a bit more of that than any other. Once everything is blended I added water until it reached a thin consistency, then sugar to taste, poured it over ice and walah!

I haven’t looked back since I got my Ninja blender [+] a couple weeks ago. I’m not sure how my kitchen has gone so long without a blender, much less one that works great!  They are so convenient and handy, especially the single serve cups.

What do you know about passion fruit?
