If you’re looking for a great root vegetable juicing recipe, then this is it! The saying “Drink your Roots!” couldn’t be more true in this juicing recipe from Leanne Vogel who blogs at Healthful Pursuit.
Here are some of her thoughts on juicing sweet potatoes:
Juicing a sweet potato has never really been up there on my priorities list because, well, I didn’t even know juicing a sweet potato was even possible. But wouldn’t you know it, it is possible and it’s pretty darn healthy, too. Paired with the beets and carrots to sweeten things up, and this is one heck of a cleansing juice recipe if I do say so myself.
Like Leanne, I too never thought to include sweet potato in my recipes for juicing at home.
Pink Lady Carrot Juice
- 1 medium beetroot, washed and quartered
- 5 large carrots, washed
- 1 medium sweet potato, washed, peeled and quartered
The benefits of juicing sweet potatoes and carrots is all about the beta carotene, which gives them their orange color and converts to Vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for healthy immune systems, skin, and vision.
