Cactus fig juice

I started today in a very healthy way with morning exercise followed by homemade cactus fig juice. There were such lovely and colourful cactus figs at the market, and they were quite cheap as well, so I had to buy them again after a long while. They made a very nice juice with lime and ginger. Check out my method below.

Now I'm baking rolls for breakfast, and then I'll hit the town for some food, and perhaps clothing, shopping. The rain has cleared for now, so I'm hoping for a nice autumn's day. What are your weekend plans?

This is how I made the cactus fig juice.

Cactus fig juice


6 cactus figs
½ lime
3 cm fresh ginger
1 cup water


Peel the cactus figs, and be careful while at it. They have actual cactus spines on them unless they have been carefully removed. It may be best to use gloves.

Also peel the ginger and put it in a blender with the squeezed lime and peeled cactus figs.

Blend and add water to taste. I added about one cup, but you might want to add more or less depending on how thick you want the juice to be.

Sieve the juice to remove the hard seeds of the cactus figs and enjoy.

Have a nice weekend!
