I always love smoothies or juicing, so when Chanda showed up with a prickly pear I was all in to try a new experiment. I don’t recall the last time I had prickly pear, maybe it was a margarita at Fish Guacho? MMMmm that sounds yummy. But I can reassure you this little creation was yummy and gorgeous!! What’s a prickly pear? They are the fruit you will find on cactus! Why would I want to eat one? They are a great source of dietary fiber, vitamin c and magnesium. Aaaand they are pretty tasty and pretty to boot. I did a combo with prickly pear, pears and agave. You could always add some ice and tequila to make this recipe a fun cocktail! Let’s get juicing!
Start by slicing up all your fruit, love that color!!
Next it’s time to juice!
Add all your fruit…
And then about a tablespoon agave…
It has a “slime” effect that is kind of different due to the cactus….
But boy did it taste good served over ice….
Even the kiddos approved!!
