Harry Potter's Favorite Pumpkin Juice

September 14, 2011

Whether on the Hogwarts Express or at the Great Hall, you can count on Harry, Ron, and Hermonie drinking pumpkin juice.  With pumpkin season just around the corner, it is only appropriate to share this recipe for this sweet and spicy beverage.  To juice the pumpkin, I recommend using a juicer instead of the cheesecloth method.  It is faster and easier.  You can also use pumpkin puree but the drink will be thicker.  I like to make this drink before I start a Harry Potter movie marathon.

Pumpkin Juice
Recipe from mugglenet.com


• 2 cups of pumpkin, chopped up into chunks

• 2 cups of apple juice

• ½ cup of pineapple juice

• 1 teaspoon of honey (more or less to your liking

• Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg and/or Allspice (all ground, to taste)


Step 1: Juice the pumpkin pieces by squeezing through a cheesecloth or using a juicer if you have one.

Step 2: Pour the pumpkin juice, apple juice and pineapple juice into a blender.

Step 3: Add the honey (we recommend you start with 1 teaspoon, as you can add some later!) to the juices and blend thoroughly.

Step 4: Add your spices (to taste). This might take some experimentation to get right.

Step 5: Chill your pumpkin juice or serve iced and enjoy!
