I finally got to create the Magical Pumpkin juice🎃 My witchy friend from the US brought me the original pumpkin juice from the Wizarding World! I was so incredibly excited to try this magical beverage. I served it cold and over ice and it was like liquid apple pie combined with gingerbread spices. After trying the original pumpkin juice, I wanted to create my own version straight away. So let's begin shall we?
For 1 litre flask:
🎃 half a butternut squash
🎃 5 eating apples like Royal Gala
🎃 1 small piece of ginger depending to taste
🎃 8 apricots
🎃 100 ml mango pulp
🎃 2 oranges
🎃 2 cups of water
🎃 1/2 cup of organic sugar (use less if you want it less sweeter)
🎃 drop of vanilla extract
🎃 1,5 tsp of ground cinnamon
🎃 1 tbsp gingerbread spices
🎃 zest of 1 orange
Preheat your oven to 200. Peel and deseed the squash. Cut them into 2 cm cubes and put them on the roasting tray. Zest 1 orange and use the juice as well. I put some gingerbread spices and cinnamon, just a pinch. This is optional to add more depth to the squash while roasting. Put in the oven for 25 minutes. Until soft. Let cool and set aside.
Cut the other fruits and put them through the juicer. A long with the roasted pumpkin and the water. Because otherwise the juicer will not make the pumpkin to a juicy liquid form. Zest the orange and add to the juice.
Take a large cauldron or pan to heat up the juice. Add the sugar, mango pulp and spices and stir around. And do not forget the vanilla extract. Let it bubble away for 25 minutes. Small bubbles not a hard boil. To thicken and infuse and get magical 🎃
Let the juice cool down and serve fridge cold. And even better over ice cubes. Perfect beverage to enjoy with your magical friends😘
