Here’s one thing to do with prickly pears that are on their way out, especially if you don’t like or can’t have seeds. I peeled and blended these babies up, then strained the liquid. The liquid was added to some mineral water and maple. It tasted great.
- 1 prickly pear
- 6 oz. mineral water
- 1 tbsp. maple syrup
I always like to see what the benefits of various foods are. According to Dr. Weil, prickly pear will help regulate blood sugar and reduce inflammation among other things. They contain antioxidants known as betalains.
Hope you enjoy trying this tonic!
