I'll be honest, when I read about pumpkin juice while reading the Harry Potter books I wasn't exactly too keen on trying the stuff. In fact, pumpkin isn't one of my favorite flavors, nor am I overly fond of the smell. That being said, when I stumbled across a recipe for Harry Potter pumpkin juice I decided I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try some -and develop a real opinion based on the taste of the juice.
1.Pour the apple juice concentrate and water into a blender.
2. Add the canned pumpkin, apricot preserves, vanilla, and cinnamon.
3. Blend on high until well incorporated. Alternatively, you could pour everything into a bowl and hand whisk/mix.
4. Pour into glasses and serve.
So, what was my final verdict? Well...it was okay. To be honest, the flavor of the apply juice was stronger than the pumpkin. I'm not big on apple juice, but the overall flavor wasn't too bad. While I won't be making this recipe weekly, I'd definitely be willing to make it for special (Harry Potter themed) events!
