How to Juice a Sweet Potato

By Joe Faulkner-Edwards

When it comes to juicing, sweet potatoes may not be the first vegetable you think of, but you can mix them with other juices to add richness and a smooth, thick texture. Strawberries, with their acidity, pair well with the sweet potatoes, as does fresh apple juice. Go all-vegetable and mix carrot juice, orange juice, a dash of lime juice and sweet potato juice together for a nutrition powerhouse with zing. As with all fresh juices, drink it straight away.
