[tweetmeme source=”VeganChickie”]The smell of fresh Passion fruit always reminds me of my Mum’s favourite dessert – and culinary specialty – Pavlova. Since becoming a vegan, pavlova is out of my reach, I do have dreams of creating the perfect vegan Pav, but until I do (or someone else does, get to it team!) I satisfy my passionfruit cravings with passion fruit green smoothies. My Mum lives in QLD and has a beautiful passion fruit vine climbing in her yard so we have an abundance of beautiful fresh passion fruit ripe for the picking while we are here on holidays, what a treat!

Passionfruit & Banana Green Smoothie


4 passionfruit (flesh & seeds only)
1 banana, peeled
1 apple, core removed
4 large silverbeet leaves
1 tbs ground chia seeds (optional)
1/2 cup water


1. Place your fruit in the blender, add water and blend until smooth, add your ‘greens’ and blend again until smooth. Add your chia seeds and blend until they are mixed through. Serve.

Amounts above will be enough for 2 smoothies.

NOTE: The amount of water you use will depend on how thick you like your smoothie, I just use enough to get the blender going nice and fast, if you like your mixture to be less thick, add more water.
