I have always wanted to juice a yam. Something about juicing something weird, but not too weird that it won’t be good (like that time I juiced a banana…) makes weekly juicing more interesting. This week it paid off, because this juice was great! Aside from the fact is was radioactive orange, it was subtly sweet and slightly earthy. The perfect balance.
I only used about 1/4 of a yam, but in the future I know I’d be able to use more. It was earthy, but not starchy like I was worried about.
- 1/4 pineapple
- 1 orange
- 1/4 yam
- 3 carrots
- thumb of ginger
- 1/4 lemon
Yams, pineapples, and carrots are packed with potassium and vitamin A, and there are huge amounts of vitamin C in this one too from the oranges (and pineapple). Overall, this juice is good for your heart, good for your bones, and supports immune function.
