Sweet Potato Apple Ginger Juice

You probably already know by now that I love juicing. Yes, you’ve heard me complain endlessly about cleaning the juicer, but somedays, it calls to me. With a fridge full of produce, I spent most of my Saturday morning playing mad scientist. Nothing was safe in those veggie bins! By the end, I bottled more juice than I can tell you! I’ll be sharing some of my odd combinations with you over the next few weeks and I promise to give you my honest opinion.

I’ve heard of juicing sweet potato before and have been intrigued. I love sweet potatoes. Pairing it with apple and ginger creates a really nice seasonal fall juice. The flavors go so well together and with sweet potatoes and apples at their season’s best right now, this just made sense. Nutritionally, this juice is well under 150 calories and is a great source of potassium, beta-carotene and Vitamins A and B6.

So…the verdict on taste? This juice tastes really delicious and very much how I thought it would, but one thing I wasn’t crazy about was the starchiness from the potato. It does add a silky texture to the juice, but much of it settles to the bottom of the glass, which is actually a good thing. Except, I can’t tell you this is good to the last drop! No, really, it’s very tasty, I’d just put the glass down before you hit the loveliness at the bottom!
