Carrot Sweet Potato Juice

SWEET POTATO JUICE??? Wah??? Um, yes! It’s awesome.

Got this idea today after yoga class. My friend Mayra and I were talking about juicing. (This is a typical post-yoga class conversation, btw.) I mentioned that as it has been getting colder, I mostly want to juice carrots. They seem more warming to me; because of their color, because they are a root vegetable and because they go really well with ginger.

Mayra told me about her friend or maybe her sister or maybe her sister’s friend who combines carrots, sweet potato and ginger for her cold weather juicing. SWEET POTATO???? Wah??? How cool! So I immediately went home to try it.

Beet Red Juice

Standard

I’m usually a green juice girl all the way. But, oh my, this is really good. Fun departure from my usual morning juice. It’s so great to get nutrients from different sources and a rainbow of colors.

So to make Beet Red Juice, place the following organic fruits and vegetables in your juicer:

1 cucumber, chopped in large chunks

2 stalks celery, chopped

1/2 beet, chopped

1 cup black or red grapes, taken off stem

1 red apple

Pour into a fancy glass and love it.
