About This Recipe
If you are a Harry Potter fan and have been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, you will know what pumpkin juice is. But if you haven’t’ let me tell you all about it.
If you ask me one word that perfectly describes fall season in one glass, my answer would be this Pumpkin Juice. A sweet juice with a slight hint of spiciness and the smooth flavor from Pumpkin, this Juice is a must to make when you have fresh Pumpkins available in the market.
This juice is cooked unlike other juice recipes, where pumpkin puree is mixed with apple cider, pumpkin pie spice, and a few more ingredients. I like to serve this juice cold, therefore after cooking it to perfection, I chill it for a few hours before serving.
But if you are looking for a warm beverage, you can have it hot in a cup for your cold winter nights too. These are also great to serve for Themed Parties, Birthdays, Halloween parties, and even Thanksgiving dinner.
This one tastes just like the juice they serve in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. So if you have ever tasted it or want to know how this popular juice tastes, make it at home using my copycat recipe.
This Pumpkin flavored Juice is,
- Sweet with a hint of spice
- Perfect for Fall, Autumn & Winter
- Refreshing & Unique
- Can be served warm or cold
Apple Cider – Apple cider provides this juice a sweet crisp taste that is perfect for the fall season and it also complements the pumpkin well. Check out my Slow Cooker Apple Cider Recipe to make it from scratch at home.
Pear Nectar – Pear nectar provides a nice flavor and sweetness to the juice. Opt for good quality nectar for the best taste.
You can also use apricot or peach nectar instead of pear nectar.
Pumpkin Puree – This is the star ingredient of this juice. This gives the juice a smooth consistency which makes this even more yum! You can either buy canned pumpkin puree ar make it at home using my easy peasy Pumpkin Puree Recipe.
Pumpkin Pie Spice – Pumpkin Pie spice adds that a slight hint of spice, which makes it tastes just like pumpkin pie. This should not be missed.
You can either use store-bought pumpkin pie spice or you can even make it at home. I have mentioned below how to make it at home.
Brown Sugar – You can adjust the amount of brown sugar as per your taste. If not brown sugar, you can add white sugar too.
Vanilla Extract – Vanilla extract adds a slight flavor of vanilla that goes really well with other ingredients and also adds to the aroma of this juice.
