Carrot Pumpkin Spice Juice

Carrot Pumpkin Spice Juice

Did you know you can juice pumpkins and make pumpkin juice drinks?  You can!  They have a great neutral taste that go with many other fruits and vegetables.  So many people use the canned and cooked pumpkin for smoothies, but never think to juice it.  If you have some extra pumpkins lying around from the holidays give it a try.  It makes a great thanksgiving snack or brunch juice for your guests. 

Pumpkin juicing tips

  • Use pie pumpkins or any pumpkin variety that can be eaten.
  • Always cut the rind off of the pumpkin before juicing.  The rind can damage your juicer.
  • Remove the pumpkin seeds from the center before juicing.
  • Pumpkins pair well with carrots, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, citrus, pineapple, mango, apples, pears, squash, zucchini, kale, spinach and beets.
  • Pumpkins don’t yield much juice, so when creating your own pumpkin juice recipe, you’ll need to pair it with other juicy produce.
  • You’ll need a strong knife to remove the rind and cut through the pumpkin.  A little knife won’t cut it well and will cause you frustration.
  • Pumpkins should be juiced raw, just as all other produce is juiced raw.  Do not cook the pumpkin first.
