Prickly pear (or Cactus Pear) puree can be purchased ready-to-use at specialty grocery stores or can be made from the fruit of the cactus plant. For the DIY’ers, simply peel the fruit (like a kiwi), and puree in the blender. Watch out for the tiny hair-like “spines” – a good pair of gloves comes in handy. Strain out the peppercorn-like seeds.
Or for an easier approach, keep our Prickly Pear Cactus Lemonade Double Shots on hand!
