Prickly Pear Juice Recipe

Prickly Pear Juice Recipe (Cactus Fruit)

Prickly pears are the fruit of the nopales cactus plant. They’re named for their pear-like shape and size. The texture and aroma of the fruit is very similar to grainy watermelon, with a mild sweetness. The seeds from the prickly pears look the same as the ones from kiwis.

4 fresh prickly pears
1 cup ice cubes
2 limes, freshly squeezed
