This is a beautiful, bright colored juice, that will boost your immune system, aid digestion, help inflammation, and get some antioxidants in you – all in one glass.
Sweet potato and carrots are super-nutritious, and drinking them in juice allows the body to absorb the most nutrients.
Sweet potatoes are one of the greatest sources of beta-carotene of all vegetables, even higher than carrots. In fact, only 112 calories (a small sweet potato) contains 369% of your daily need of vitamin A. They also are high in Vitamin C, minerals and potassium, as well as lots of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients. Ginger adds a nice kick as well as potent anti-viral, anti-inflammatory properties.
Sweet Potato, Apple, Carrots, and Ginger Juice
It was delicious, so after a few sips, I decided to make some more – with beets (and some celery)!
I couldn’t resist to photograph the beautiful colors of sweet potatoes and beetroot juices mixing together, and in the morning sunshine…
How to selecting the perfect produce for your juice?
If available, choose organic ingredients for your juice. Look for firm, not too large sweet potatoes that are tapered at both ends. Skin should be smooth without brown spots. The darker the color, the higher the nutrient content.
My juicer: Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain
The juicer I’m using is Breville Juice Fountain, which you can find on Amazon or in any store that carries kitchen appliances. (It is also the same juicer that Joe Cross was using in the “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” documentary.)
