My daughter who is on summer break, had the coolest idea to create a fruit drink and choose to make what I call here, a Passion Fruit Mocktail. Last year, I noticed that she picked up my love for design and photography. Like a lot of girls, she is finding her voice and own style and creating things that makes her feel proud is now coming to the forefront. I realize that once she finds the energy, she doesn’t waste time and gets right to what is in her imagination.
We took a trip to Hobby Lobby earlier that day and she saw the cutest drinking glass with a gold rim. I could only think that this was something I would want for myself. It was on sale for less than $5.00. She decided to purchase it with her own money and felt proud that she could do so.
She used our high-speed blender and fruits we purchased earlier to create this easy Passion Fruit Mocktail. I didn’t hesitate to take a quick photoshoot of this adorable cup filled with Passion fruit with pineapple to garnish it. Follow this quick and easy instructions to create your own.
