Liliko'i Puree

It was a very sad day when renegade cattle broke into our yard and one stepped on the main stalk of my well tended liliko'i vine (a.k.a. passionfruit) last year. Ever since I have not had the courage to plant more. And I refuse to buy the fruits knowing how I could grow them at home. If I want to. So I was more than ecstatic when my friend, Kris, from Attainable Sustainable, gave me a big bag of liliko'i.

In my past life I would have made the puree and conjured up some liliko'i sorbet but in my new life the puree serves as a wonderful additive to smoothies. YUM!

If you have access to liliko'i, make some puree. Use it to brighten up your tastebuds!

    oh yum.

  2. i'm less healthy than you. i'm your paauilo neighbor across the way. you know.
