Malaika Arora has been a great source of inspiration and motivation when it comes to fitness. The actress does a variety of things to look this way. From skincare regimes and healthy diets to pumped up gym and yoga sessions keep her on the go and make her so active. A mother of two, the actress has featured in several popular Bollywood numbers and films. She has even judged a couple of talent shows on television and her groovy dance moves have enamoured one and all. 

The actress is always enjoying a good meal. Be it her authentic Goan indulgence with all the local flavours on a plate or her curd rice combination that she swears by as a comfort meal. She even shared her heal meal recently which comprised of khichdi, papad and a spicy chilli achaar. The actress seems to be quite a food yet she knows how to balance it all together. She took to her Instagram stories to share her source of Vitamin C. It is passion fruit. A cut-open picture of the purple- coloured fruit seems to be the secret behind her glowing skin and fit body. Here’s what it looked like.

Passion fruit is known to be good for the body and the skin. It has plenty of antioxidants which help in boosting the immune system and keeping all infections at bay. The pulp and seeds of the fruit also have anti-inflammatory properties along with protecting your cells from damage. This sweet fruit has a tart-based flavour that is really tempting and yummy. It is perfect for syrups, salad dressings and even drinks. 

Best Passion Fruit Recipes 

If you’re passionate about passion fruit like Malaika, here are some recipes for you to try. 

1.  Passion Fruit Cake 

Move over the regular orange, mango, pineapple varieties and try this passion fruit cake. The bundt-shaped cake has oodles of passion fruit chunks as well as passion fruit syrup. The soft and moist cake has a tinge of lemon zest which lends the dessert a tart flavour. 

2.  Passion Fruit Parfait 

A delicious and creamy dessert from the French cuisine, this one is best served chilled in summers. The parfait is filled with passion fruit, vanilla ice cream, passion fruit puree, poppy seeds and more. This is so creamy and sweet that you will fall in love with it. 

3.  Duck Breast With Passion Fruit Sauce 

The meat lovers can rejoice as this dish is a purely meaty delight with a tart flavour. The passion fruit is blanched and made into a pulpy sauce. This is drizzled over grilled duck breasts and the flavour, you ask? Out of this world. 

4.  Passion Fruit Tart

Passion fruit has a sweet and tangy flavour that works well in case of tarts. Frozen passion fruit is used for the tart and the pulp is used for garnishing. The seeds of the fruit come out well in the tart and lend the dessert a chewy bite which is a respite.
