Naturally, when Margaret (The Plant Philosophy) and I decided to meet and hang out this month, I immediately suggested a Harry Potter recipe collab, in the spirit of Halloween! We decided to put our own spin on a couple of potions from the books: Polyjuice (on Margaret’s blog) and Felix Felicis (below). It was too much fun!
If you’re behind in potions class, don’t worry, I’ll catch you up to speed. Felix Felicis, also known as liquid luck, is a golden concoction that enables the drinker to be successful in everything they pursue.
“Then, slowly but surely, an exhilarating sense of infinite opportunity stole through [Harry]; he felt as though he could have done anything, anything at all…” – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Now, this Felix Felicis juice recipe won’t guarantee you magical luck, but it will certainly make you feel refreshed and ready to take on whatever challenges lie ahead in your day. The flavor starts off fresh with bright citrus notes, ending with an invigorating kick of ginger.
makes 1.75 cups
- 2 cups fresh pineapple, lightly packed
- 2 – 3 inches fresh ginger (use more or less, to your taste)
- 2 medium oranges
- 2 pinches fresh rosemary or thyme
- 1 pinch turmeric
- Run everything but the turmeric through the juicer at least twice to get all the juice out of the fruit. Save the pulp to use it in Margaret’s polyjuice potion!
- Stir in the turmeric.
- Adjust to your taste.
- Pour into your favorite glass (or potion bottle) and enjoy sipping the stimulating flavors of liquid luck! Let it fill you with radiant confidence.
Notes: This juice also tastes amazing when mixed with a sparkling probiotic drink or even kombucha! I would go with a mango or ginger kombucha, to preserve the golden color. Experiment to your taste for the perfect bubbly pick me up!
Don’t forget to head over to The Plant Philosophy to try the Polyjuice Potion! We were so thrilled to come up with a creation that resembles Polyjuice Potion and also tastes amazing.
Working with Margaret on this was such a joy. I’m so in love with how the recipes turned out, and I hope you enjoy them and share them with your friends. We have even more Harry Potter treats we plan to share next week, so stay tuned!
Please let me know what you might like to see us do a collab on in the future!
