Pumpkin Juice Recipe for all the Harry Potter lovers out there! This is a quick and fun drink for Halloween or Fall celebrations. Made with real ingredients, this pumpkin juice recipe will take you to another place.
Harry Potter Inspired Recipe
For as long as I’ve remembered, I have always been a Harry Potter fan, and as long as I live, I think I will continue to be. Even as an adult, I still read the Harry Potter books, transferring myself to an imaginary world of witchcraft, magic, adventure and fun. I know all the books and films inside out, all the characters, and if I might say so, always nail those Buzzfeed quizzes on Harry Potter book and films!
One of my favorite memories from the Harry Potter films is the first time Harry goes into the Great Hall for the start of year feast. You’re greeted with tables laden with delicious foods and desserts, and of course, the legendary pumpkin juice! There is laughter, and a sense of community as they all share chatter over their food, and it reaffirms my belief that food can truly bring people together.
Today I’m stoked to be sharing my pumpkin juice recipe with you and my love for all things Harry Potter!
If you’re unfamiliar with Harry Potter and its reference to pumpkin juice, pumpkin juice is one of the beverages most commonly enjoyed by students at Hogwarts. It’s usually served iced, and seems to be a favorite among wizards.
While there is never a specific recipe for pumpkin juice mentioned in the book, I came up with my spin on what a Harry Potter pumpkin juice recipe would look like!
Pumpkin Juice Recipe
Naturally, the main ingredient in this Pumpkin Juice Recipe is pumpkin, in particular canned pumpkin puree. To put a fall or Halloween spin on the recipe, I decided to go for a spice mix as well to bring out those cozy fall vibes. To make it drinkable, I used apple cider (non-alcoholic) and peach nectar as the base to make it beautifully thick and creamy. This pumpkin juice recipe is only 4 ingredients (if you include the spice blend as 1), and can be easily whipped up on the stove top and served iced or hot.
The main reason behind heating the pumpkin juice is so that the mixture becomes lovely and thick. It will take some time to cool down, however, if you do want it iced, but I feel like the heating method brings out the best results for the consistency of the drink.
I love the flavor combination of this pumpkin juice recipe. There is just enough sweetness in the drink without it being too sweet, and enough spice mix to make it really feel like a feel good fall drink. This would be great to serve at a Harry Potter themed Halloween party, or as tasty beverage for any party. I didn’t try this, but I’m sure you could add your favorite liquor as well to make it adult friendly!
