Dominican Republic’s Passion Fruit is Delicious and Healthy

The Art of Life philosophy is not complete without Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana’s world fusion gourmet dining featuring organic and traditional ingredients.  Chefs from the resort’s restaurants, Amaya, Indigo and Maroon, use native ingredients to enhance the dining experience. Passion fruit, or Chinola as it is called in Dominican Republic, is a popular native fruit that is delicious and healthy. It is loaded with vitamin A and C, antioxidants, potassium and fiber.

This tropical fruit is the size of a tennis ball and has pink, purple or yellow-green skin.  Dominican Republic’s native passion fruit are commonly yellow. Inside the think skin is pulp with countless small dark seeds.  The crunchy seeds of the fruit are very vital sources of fiber. The pulp is a light-yellow or orange color and has a strong sweet fragrant.  Passion fruit can be enjoyed by itsself or used in a favorite recipe.

Similar to Zoëtry Agua’s philosophy, these fruits aid in the overall relaxation of the body.  It has been proven to help you enjoy a restful and sound sleep when taken before bedtime. Passion fruit can also help you power through your morning yoga session or afternoon tennis game because it is high in carbohydrates and simple sugars which both improve athletic performance. Enjoy passion fruit while you are staying at Zoëtry Agua or try the simple recipe below with passion fruit as the star ingredient.
