Here's my recipe for Pumpkin Juice, just in time for the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 this Friday on DVD, etc.
The label for Pumpkin Juice at Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter lists the ingredients as water, apple juice concentrate, pumpkin puree, apricot puree, sugar, natural and artificial flavor, citric acid, acesulfame potassium, and sodium benzoate. Now, I leave out the sugar and everything else on the list after it, and my natural flavors come from spices. We find that it is sweet and tasty enough without the added sugar. Because of the purees, this is a bit thicker than most juices, but I understand that the WWOHP product is also slightly pulpy. My Vita-Mix does a fabulous job with this recipe. I haven't tried the WWOHP juice yet, but hope to some day soon. I'd love to know from someone who has tasted it, if this recipe comes close to matching the wizarding beverage.
4 cups apple juice (I make mine from concentrate and add an extra can of water.)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup apricot puree
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Place all ingredients in blender. Process on high for 1 minute. For best flavor, chill in refrigerator. Shake or stir before serving.
(To make the apricot puree, I puree a can of apricots without the juice in my Vita-Mix and freeze the leftover puree for future batches. You can also use jarred apricot baby food.)
