French fries and chips give potatoes a bad rap. But the truth is, potatoes are high in vitamins, minerals and fiber, and they can be a healthy part of any diet. And just like other roots and tubers like carrots and beets, they can be juiced!

How to Juice a Potato

Step 1

Thoroughly scrub the outside of each potato with hot water.

Step 2

Peel the potatoes and remove their eyes. Use a sharp knife to cut out any bruised or green portions. Chop the potatoes into chunks small enough to fit in the opening of the juicer.

Step 3

Process the potatoes through the juicer. Do not juice the peels. This should create enough juice for two to four servings.

Step 4

Pour the juice into a carafe and thoroughly chill before drinking.
