Cactus Fruit Juice (How to)

Rocky Road | Nov 4, 201101:42 PM

In 2008, I posted about the first cactus fruit I ate. I loved the taste, hated the seed aspect. In that thread we talked mostly about the seeds and how that affected the eating of the fruit. I searched the site for my current topic but didn’t see anything so I wanted to start a new thread with this new title.

My wife saw this infomercial about a drink call Nopalea. This is cactus fruit juice I think. I’ll confess right now, I didn’t do much research on the company putting this drink out, or the ingredients in it, except it was very expensive so I knew I probably wasn’t going to be buying any.

Today I bought three pounds of red cactus fruit and I would like to juice them. I don’t have a juicer, except for a citrus juicer, so my thought was to: skin them, cut them up, put them in a little water, boil, then push them thru a strainer.

Any other ideas? I’m not familiar with juicing, except citrus. Thanks.
