Grown in tropical regions throughout the world, passion fruit is usually enjoyed as a juice with the crunchy seeds strained out. But consider leaving them: In this smoothie they help deliver an impressive 6 grams of fiber. Passion fruit is also a good source of vitamins A and C and nonheme, plant-based iron.
Cut the passion fruits in half and scoop the seeded flesh into a blender. Add the mango, yogurt, orange juice, vanilla, a pinch of salt and 4 ice cubes. Blend until smooth; you'll still be able to see the broken up seeds. Drink right away.
If your passion fruits are a little on the tart side, you can add a little honey or pure maple syrup for sweetness. Keep in mind that both carbohydrate and sugar numbers for the smoothie will change.
