Harry Potter; Pumpkin Juice
  • half a butternut pumpkin
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • and ½ cup pineapple juice.
  • 1 tsp of honey
  • a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice
  1. Start by scooping the seeds out of half a butternut pumpkin (my preferred choice here), chopping it into chunks and steaming it, until soft and mushy straight through.
  2. Scoop the pumpkin off the skin.
  3. --Version 1
  4. Scoop the pumpkin onto cheesecloth. Don't blend the pumpkin beforehand, as I find the 'mush' goes straight through the cloth, and defeats the purpose of straining. Squeeze until all the juice is in the bowl, and you're left with a handful of pumpkin mush.
  5. --Version 2
  6. Put it through a juicer
  7. In a pitcher, mix together
  8. the pumpkin juice
  9. cups apple juice
  10. and ½ cup pineapple juice.
  11. Stir in a tsp of honey and a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice.
  12. Stir well, chill and serve.
