Passion fruit popsicles (granadilla)

Passion fruit popsicles (granadilla)

This granadilla (passion fruit) popsicle recipe is quintessentially summer and so easy to make. I’ve tried to develop a texture soft enough to eat without falling apart, because who likes to bite into a rock-solid piece of ice.

Made with only 3 ingredients and a splash of optional rum (or vodka), the only effort here is scooping the flesh out of the granadilla. This recipe uses a lot of fruit, so this is perfect mid-summer when passion fruit is in peak season. I’ve adapted my favourite passion fruit sorbet recipe to make these popsicles and opted for half a cup of sugar as the fruit I used was very ripe. You could even knock this back to 1/3 of a cup if you preferred them less sweet.

We call passion fruit granadilla in South Africa which is strange because sweet granadilla is actually a different species native to South America. It’s a fruit that transports me directly to my childhood at my grandparents’ home in Johannesburg. We would swim all day and pick granadilla off the vines which grew prolifically next to their pool. We savagely bit into the skin and sucked the sweet gelatinous seeds straight out the shells. No cutting or spooning out required.


  • 1/2 cup of sugar (drop to 1/3 of a cup for very ripe and sweet fruit)
  • 1 cup of fresh orange juice (250ml)
  • 2 cups of fresh granadilla pulp (500ml)
  • 2 Tbsp vodka or white rum (optional)
