Sweet Potato Fruit Juice

Sweet Potato Fruit Juice

Fall in Wisconsin could probably be one of my favorite seasons. It’s a time where comfort food shines, you can get into warmer clothes on gloomy days, the colors on all of the trees is remarkable, and a variety of fruits and vegetables are finally in harvest. So recently I picked up an assortment of fruits and vegetables as I wanted to come up with some sort of juice with a reminder of that great fall weather. Pomegranates, carrots, apples, and a variety of citrus was in order for my juice plan, with a focus on the pomegranates, and then I looked over and saw this great sweet potato looking at me. That’s when I decided to make an attempt at juicing it, and am I ever glad I did! This juice could have possibly bee on of the best ones I have must thus far with my Dash juicer.

Sweet Potato Fruit Juice Recipe

I was a bit skeptical when running the hard sweet potatoes through my juicer as it can fumble on really hard items at times. It is also one of the reasons I have been looking at some of the great juicers from Williams-Sonoma. I would really love to have the Vitamix Professional Series blender as it is multipurpose, but the Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer also has my attention. Maybe one day when I come into a lot of extra money that dream will come true, but in the meantime, I will continue to chop my fruits and vegetables before putting them into my Dash juicer, oh well.

There are so many benefits of juicing, and I knew that the sweet potato would add an extra punch to the benefits of gulping this delicious juice down. Trust me, you are going to love this, and the pineapple really brings it together.

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole pomegranate, seeds only
  • 1 whole apple, quartered
  • 1 large carrot, washed
  • 1 orange, skin removed
  • 1 grapefruit, skin removed
  • 1/2 lemon, skin removed
  • 1 whole sweet potato, skin removed, chopped
  • 1 cup of fresh pineapple, chopped

This juice yields about 3 cups so there is plenty to go around, or just take it all in yourself.

Start by slicing your pomegranate in half. Over a large bowl, seeds facing the bowl, use a large wooden spoon and begin whacking the skin side of the pomegranate. Do this and continue to spin the pomegranate until all seeds are removed. Do this with the other half as well. Reserve some of the seeds for garnishing your juice, which will add some nice texture as well.

I layer fruit, vegetables, fruit into my juicer. That combination assists the vegetables in breaking down a bit better. If you have a higher quality juicer like the ones from Williams-Sonoma, then you can probably do whatever you want.

How to make Sweet Potato Juice

Once you have juiced all of your ingredients, add some ice to your glass, and slowly pour into the glass. Garnish the top with a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds and you are now in business. Did I mention how awesome the color of this sweet potato juice was?

With every gulp of this juice, I knew I was injecting all of the great nutrients from all of the ingredients, and in the future, whatever the season, I will always start use a sweet potato. Hope you enjoy!
