Pumpkin juice is an extremely versatile juice that is used in several recipes apart from being consumed in its raw form. For the best juice select a pumpkin that is consistent in color and is sweet (suitable for eating or making pies).

If you want to enhance the flavor of the juice sprinkle in some spices like ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon, ginger or apple juice or even lemon juice. We suggest adding these in moderation to preserve the natural taste of this wonder juice. Serving over ice only enhances its cooling and refreshing effect.
