  • 10 dried apricots
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 7 allspice berries
  • 2 - 2 inch pieces of thinly sliced ginger
  • 1/2 vanilla bean split (or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • Soak the apricots in the water for at least 4 hours or overnight in the fridge.
  • Add the apple juice, cinnamon stick, allspice, ginger and vanilla bean to a saucepan. Bring almost to boil, then turn heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Take off heat and let it cool a bit.
  • Add the apricots and the soaking water to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Add the pumpkin puree and nutmeg and blend again.
  • Strain the apple juice mixture into the blender to make sure only the liquid comes through. Blend until smooth.
  • Put a fine mesh strainer over a pitcher and strain the pulp so that only the thick juice is in the pitcher.


Save the pulp and make pumpkin juice slow cooker oats the next day!!
