Passion juice is also possible to make at home. If you have passion fruits, you can make homemade juice. Also, you can buy readymade passion juice from reputable stores like me.
Coconut milk is another key ingredient for this paradise drink recipe. (Water, coconut cream, cane sugar, ≤2% Tricalcium Phosphate, coconut water, sea salt, Xanthan gum, gellan gum, Guar gum, corn dextrin, and natural flavors)
