Home Made Pumpkin Juice


I have to thank my my cousin for this recipe. She is a die-hard Harry Potter fan, and she found this recipe after falling in love with the pumpkin juice at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, Florida. She said, “[My grandma and I] just looked up ingredients and tried different measurements, and kept trying it until we got it right.” Last weekend for Sunday brunch, my cousin made this juice, and it was fabulous – perfect for October. Not to mention, it was made with all natural ingredients, sweetened with apple juice and apricot preserves.You must try this stuff! See the recipe below.


1 can frozen apple juice

2 cans water

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1/4 cup apricot preserves

1/2 t vanilla extract

1/2 t ground cinnamon.


Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Stir, chill, and serve.
