CFCA serves more than 2,600 sponsored children and elderly in Uganda. This recipe comes from a group of mothers of sponsored children. The mothers grow passion fruit as part of a CFCA livelihood program. Not only does it make money to support their families, but it also gives them a way to actively engage in their community.
The number of passion fruits for the recipe depends on how much juice you want to make. One glass of juice requires three passion fruits. If you are making four glasses of juice, for example, you can use 12 passion fruits.
