Prickly Pear Cactus grows abundantly in the Southwest, and their fruit is commonly used for jelly, jams, and drinks. The mildly sweet prickly pear fruit goes great in this drink and is full of antioxidants that support liver health and help fight inflammation. This delicious mocktail also contains vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
If you don't live in the Southwest or don't want to harvest your own fruit, Prickly Pear Cactus Fruit is available commercially in a few forms like puree, syrup, frozen, or powder.
