YUM-tangy and tart! Most frozen drinks are so icky sweet but not this one! On my trip to Rio a couple years ago we saw these fruity batida drinks being sold everywhere, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. This Batida de MaracujÃ¡ was easy to make at home with a frozen package of Goya passion fruit pulp. I had no problem with it going through the straw (very quickly, I might add) so evelyn/athens may have been using fresh pulp or a thicker brand. I think a little mint would be a good addition to this, and some people may want to add sugar. Made for the Zaar World Tour.
I found the passion fruit pulp really needed to be whizzed in a blender to allow it to pass through the straw - otherwise, a delicious long drink, with the sweet/sour thing going on. Thanks.
