You Can Drink Raw Potato Juice

It is a slight misnomer that you can only consume cooked potato because you actually can. You do have to make sure to remove any green spots or sprouting areas, but otherwise raw potato is fine especially in juice form. It has been shown to be beneficial in helping those with kidney problems, heart disease and hypertension and may even help suppress cancer cells. You do, however, have to add a little flavor to potato juice so here is a simple recipe for this healthy vegetable juice.

  • 3-4 potatoes
  • 1 apple
  • 1 small piece of fresh ginger

  1. Peel and remove any imperfections from the potatoes, chop them into smaller pieces and place into a pot of cold water. This is so they do not oxidize and turn brown in color.
  2. Core and slice the apple into smaller pieces ready for juicing.
  3. Peel off the tough skin of the ginger, leaving only the fibrous yellow flesh and cut into suitable chunks.
  4. Juice all three ingredients together and be sure to drink within 30 minutes of making or it will start to turn an unpleasant brown color.
