Why We Love This Copycat Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice

On a recent trip to Harry Potter World in Orlando, we decided to taste-test several of the popular beverages offered in Diagon Alley. To our surprise, it wasn’t the famous Butterbeer that caught our attention, but the Pumpkin Juice!

Our whole family loved the chilled Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice so much that we decided to make our own copycat version at home…. Turns out, it is super easy!

What makes Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice special is that it isn’t just a pumpkin drink. Instead, this is a juice blend containing pumpkin, apple, nectarine (or peach), and a few key baking spices. It’s sweet, kissed with fall spice, and tastes like fall.

After MANY test runs and tastings, this is the combination that best represents Harry Potter World and keeps my family coming back for more. I have a feeling I’ll even be making batches in the spring and summer!

But this copycat pumpkin juice recipe is everything that you love about fall. Pumpkin and apple along with brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice? All the best fall flavors merge and create one amazingly delicious fall drink!

Our chilled pumpkin juice recipe is a snap to blend up like magic in only a few minutes and is sure to make muggles and wizards alike happy.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have never read Harry Potter or seen the movies, you might be asking yourself, what is pumpkin juice?? Pumpkin juice is a drink that is often referred to in the movies and books and is enjoyed often in their magical world. That and butterbeer!

How long will homemade Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice keep well?

I can’t find apricot or peach nectar. Where should I look?

In our local grocery stores, both items are in either the juice aisle (with the fancier bottles) or in the international food section, sold in small cans. You can also buy either type of juice online. In a pinch, use white grape juice instead.
