Either you love it or you hate it. I’m firmly in the passionfruit lover camp. I adore how tangy and zippy this low FODMAP fruit is. It also makes the BEST low FODMAP passionfruit curd. You can use it to brighten up your:

  • Toast
  • Low FODMAP ice cream
  • Muesli yoghurt bowl
  • Sponge cake
  • Meringue tower
  • Pavlova

Basically you can turn this passionfruit curd into a fancy dessert with very minimal work. But be warned you will need to hide the passionfruit curd in the fridge otherwise your family will steal it and eat it straight from the jar.

  1. Cut the passionfruit in half and measure out the pulp.
  2. Place the egg yolks and white sugar in a small saucepan. Whisk until well combined and smooth.
  3. Add the dairy free spread (olive oil spread or butter), passionfruit pulp, and lemon juice into the saucepan. Cook on low until the dairy free spread has completely melted, stirring continuously.
  4. Turn the heat up to medium. Continue to cook and stir until the mixture thickens (this should take 5 to 7 minutes). Once you start to see tiny little bubbles rising to the surface you will know it's done (at this stage it should ‘plop’ off a spoon).
  5. Place the passionfruit curd in a sterilised jar and store in the fridge. The curd will continue to thicken as it cools.
  6. The curd will last up to two weeks in the fridge. Recommended serving size is 1 to 2 tablespoons.
