Sweet Potato Orange Pineapple Juice

Summary
Sweet Potato Juice 

In something of a continuing homage to wintertime root vegetables, today we’re spotlighting the sweet potato. Although often overshadowed by lighter and more traditional potato varieties, the sweet potato is formidable in both flavor and nutrient profile. Although it might not be the first type of produce that you’d think to juice, sweet potatoes juiced raw add a nice creamy texture and sweet taste.

Considering how sweet and delicious they are, you’d think sweet potatoes wouldn’t be that good for you. But this couldn’t be much further from being the case. They’re actually loaded with nutrients! For starters, they’re one of the best natural sources of beta-carotene. They put carrots to shame in this respect. Sweet potatoes are also a good source of potassium, calcium and vitamin C. Plus, their antioxidant punch has been shown to reduce cancer risk and significantly bolster immune system function. And oh yeah, they’re delicious!

This recipe makes full use of the sweet potato’s talents. Orange and pineapple round out and add depth to its flavor profile. They’re also handy for juicing with potato since they’re both liquid-heavy – the potato is of course starchy and yields less liquid. Try this one out and be happily surprised – raw potato juice, who knew?
