Passion Fruit Pudding

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love passion fruit. Ok, maybe that’s not the most important thing about me. It’s pretty high up there, though. Anyway, naturally, when summer rolls around and these pretty fruits magically appear on vines all over my neighborhood, I start to crave it. I actually just planted a passion fruit vine in my own yard, and while I do have one fruit growing, it’s nowhere near ready. Thankfully, frozen passion fruit pulp exists. And it’s pretty easy to come by, too! So if you don’t have fresh passion fruit available, feel free to use frozen pulp in this pudding.

Why a pudding? Well, it’s one of the easier desserts to make low carb, for starters. I’ve also been watching the Great British Baking Show a lot lately, and if there’s one thing British people love, it’s pudding. Even if their definition of pudding is a bit more all encompassing than mine. Finally, pudding just seemed like a cool, refreshing picnic treat and I’ve been dying to stage and shoot a picnic. So here we are. (Shoutout to Crow Canyon Home for making my picnic dreams come true with this vintage inspired mug!)

Where can I find passion fruit pulp?

Now if you’ve never bought passion fruit pulp before, you’ll want to look for it in the frozen fruit aisle of the grocery store. If you’ve ever bought pre-frozen fruit for smoothies, it’s likely in that same area. I also want to address the elephant in the room. Its name is Goya. If you’ve been tuned into the news lately, you’ve probably seen that the brand Goya has become quite controversial of late after backing the Trump administration. So uh, yeah maybe try and avoid buying their passion fruit pulp. Unfortunately, they’re one of the bigger brands that carries this delectable ingredient. Don’t worry, though – they’re not the only one. I asked the people of twitter and was pointed in the direction of El Sembrador and La Fe. I also found a brand called Quirch Foods that carries it. These three brands are all very affordable, which was important to me as I didn’t want to create a recipe that could only be made with something bougie and expensive or immoral. Though don’t get me wrong, if you want bougie pulp, you can definitely find it.

Passion Fruit Pudding

Servings 6 8oz vessels


  • 3/4 cups Sugar (Or sugar substitute – I used Swerve!)
  • 3 tbsp Flour
  • 3/4 cups Passion fruit pulp (Without seeds, so if you're using fresh or a frozen one that includes seeds, strain it first)
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 cups Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Butter


  • Mix the sugar, flour, passion fruit pulp, salt, and eggs in a medium pot until combined.
  • Slowly stir in the milk and heat on medium high heat, stirring continuously until it reaches a boil. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
  • Once the pudding reaches a boil, remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and butter. Stir until the butter is fully melted and both ingredients are combined.
  • Transfer pudding to small vessels and put in the fridge to cool! (I used 8 oz ramekins, but you do you. Jam jars also work great here.) Once it's nice and cool, enjoy!

And there you have it! Easy, delicious passion fruit pudding. As I mentioned earlier, this pudding is perfect picnic fare. That said, feel free to enjoy it wherever and however you’d like! Oh, and perhaps more importantly, garnish it however you’d like. I used raspberries because they’re pretty and I’m obsessed with them, but I also tried it with peaches and that was also bomb.

If you end up making this, I’d love to hear from you either in the comments or on Instagram. Or better yet, if you make and photograph it, give me a mention on the gram so I can check it out!
