Harry Potter's Pumpkin Juice (Copycat Recipe)

If you’re a fan of the Harry Potter books, you’re already familiar with pumpkin juice.

For those of you who aren’t, here’s a description of pumpkin juice from the Harry Potter wiki:

Pumpkin juice is a beverage made from pumpkins. Manufactured since 1837 by London Pumpkins & Sons, it is extremely popular in the wizarding world, particularly among the students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.Pumpkin juice is usually served iced and it is available on the Hogwarts Express. Also it is drunk on any occasion, such as for breakfast, lunch, feasts, and other special events.

Today we are pulling this recipe out of the fictitious world of Harry Potter and into the real world — just in time for Halloween.

Kids and adults alike will love this copycat pumpkin juice. Plus, it’s a lot healthier than other versions, including the one you can find at Universal Studios.

Why Try This Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice Recipe?

There is zero added sugar/refined sugar or artificial flavors in our pumpkin juice. Which makes it much healthier than the Harry Potter pumpkin juice at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando.

They also use apple juice concentrate and pumpkin puree in Orlando’s Diagon Alley, which is why our version tastes light-years fresher. Even a muggle can tell the difference!

Just wondering what you mean by "typical juicer"? "Juice Press", is that a masticating juicer? It's a bit confusing. And why do you adjust the spices if you have a "juice press"? Love this healthy version! Do you have a "healthy" version of Butterbeer? Most call for syrups and soda

Hi Carol! Our Goodnature juicers (that we have been designing and building since 1976 for the commercial juicing industry) use cold press technology. This technology utilizes an actual press to extract the juice. Your typical home juicer will use either masticating (slow juicers that crush produce against a screen) or centrifugal technology (fast spinning blades that force through a screen) to extract. You can learn more about that here: https://www.goodnature.com/difference/ The recipe formulated for use in our presses calls for the spices being added into the press as opposed to adding directly to the finished juice. In order to get the desired flavor profile, the spice measurements have to be different depending on which technology you are using. Hope this helps 😄 We have not created a healthy version of Butterbeer yet, but hope to soon!

I am very happy to see more recipes for healthy drinks and to know more healthy drinks. It would be better if there is a Toxic Juice recipe. Thanks
