RECIPE: Prickly Pear Lemonade

Have you ever tasted a prickly pear cactus? Some say it tastes like pineapple, while others say it’s more like a strawberry or raspberry taste, and even others have compared it to watermelon or the flavor of classic bubble gum.

If you’re wanting to figure out for yourself what the prickly pear tastes like, here’s a recipe for a refreshing lemonade. And it has antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, so it offers health benefits as well!

Preparing prickly pear for consumption can be difficult, as you can imagine given it’s a catcus, so I’m excited to try this lemonade recipe that adds a prickly pear syrup already prepared by Santa Fe Seasons.
