Normally I am someone who likes to use fresh ingredients, but here was Leftover recycling announced. Unfortunately, you can not simply transfer the recipe to fresh passion fruit (passion fruit).

The added Yogurt makes the ice cream creamy and dampens the acidity from the marcujas.

For an interesting additional flavor, I opted for the Tonka bean decided. This conjures up a hint of vanilla and bitter almond flavors in the ice cream.
