Passionfruit Yogurt Popsicles

May 16, 2017

My love affair with passionfruit started in Taiwan when I would visit my grandparents. When passionfruit are in season, they are everywhere and so cheap. Just a few bucks will buy you heaps of passionfruit. Coming from the States, I had never experienced passionfruit in its raw form and was instantly hooked. I would tear through them and soon became an expert-speed-passionfruit eater, tearing off the tops and just squeezing the pulps and seeds into my mouth. I know, I sound like a mad woman. That’s how much I love passionfruit. Although my favorite way of eating passionfruit is pouring them over yogurt, just how my grandmother would eat them every morning. This recipe turns this breakfast version into a frozen sweet treat. For me, the crunchy seeds are part of the joy of eating passionfruit but you could easily strain them out. These are ridiculously easy to make and the combination of creamy tangy sweet yogurt with tart passionfruit is just perfection!

  • 2 1/2 cups of plain whole Greek yogurt (as I always urge, don’t go low or non-fat, really makes a difference!)
  • 4 tablespoons of honey diluted in 2 tablespoons of hot water
  • 1 cup of passionfruit pulp, about 13-15 passionfruits (look for slightly wrinkled purple ones)


  • Mix the yogurt with the honey and water.
  • Scrape out all the passionfruit pulp and seeds into a measuring cup with a spout.
  • Add a large spoonful of yogurt to the bottom of each popsicle mold. Pour a layer of passionfruit over the yogurt. Repeat in layers.
  • Add popsicle sticks and freeze overnight.  To unmold, run the outside of the mold under hot water until you can pull out the popsicle.

Hi Karen, aren’t you on your honeymoon? And congrats on your marriage. So happy for the both of you.

i have a passionfruit vine in my garden, living in Australia – i definitely take our tropical produce for granted. i so need to change that and use local/seasonal more. such beautiful popsicles! i adore the passionfruit streaks so much. Xx

Thanks Thalia!! I can’t tell you how jealous I am that you have a passionfruit vine!

passionfruit is one of my favorite flavors on earth…the yogurt is a perfect compliment! i cannot wait to get my hands on some passionfruit so I can make these!

Creamy popsicles are one of the great joys of summer, and yours is such a knockout. I’m officially on the hunt for passionfruit. Yum!

Thanks so much, Elizabeth!! I just can’t get enough passionfruit these days..

Where do you buy your passion fruit? I never see them at the store and I adore passion fruit. I finally decided to grow my own passion fruit vine but it only produces a couple of passion fruit a year, if that. I adore passion fruit! Are there trusty on-line places to buy it?

Hi Debbie! Thanks for stopping by! Here in Berkeley we are lucky to have plentiful options for finding passionfruit. There are a few local markets that carry them, like Berkeley Bowl and Monterey Market. However, several of the Safeways here in Berkeley carry them as well.

Always happy to find a fellow lover of passionfruit. I am growing a vine here in Hawaii, and I treat it with kid gloves.
