Breville Juicer Review

Sweet potatoes are not just for cooking anymore, in fact, the cooking can take nutrients out. This sweet potato juice recipe will make plenty of juice too. Sweet potato and carrots are high in Vitamin A, C, beta-carotene, minerals and potassium. Sweet potato is high in antioxidants and helpful for anti-inflammatory. Ginger is a great flavor boost and is helpful for anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and helps nausea.

Sweet Potato Juice Recipe

Sweet Potato, Carrots, and Ginger

I like to call this recipe “Rockin roots”, it will boost your immune system, help inflammation, and help nausea. Ease digestion and get some antioxidants in you with this delicious treat.


  • 8 Carrots
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1/2 inch nub of Ginger


  1. Clean carrots, sweet potato, and ginger.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and ginger with veggie peeler. You don’t have to peel carrot if you don’t want to, but remove leafy tops if there are any (or keep on for more nutrients).
  3. Juice the sweet potatoes, carrots, and ginger.
  4. Enjoy!

  1. I am 74 years old and have been juicing on and off for about ten years. More off then on but always eating as healthy as I can. Now I am juicing every day. I got back into it the last four months because of my granddaughter and daughter have started eating healthy and juicing. I feel great and I have never been on any prescriptions, also have always tried to keep preservatives out of my diet. I am so glad to be back juicing.

    • Awesome Lois! So glad to hear you are back into juicing. Keep it up and if you ever feel you might loose your juicing fire, write me and I’ll be happy to encourage & inspire you :)

  2. I made a juice very similar to this. I call it my fall season’s orange juice. It’s made with most of the ingredients as in this recipe. I use carrots, peaches, sweet potatoes, ginger, pie pumpkin, and pears. Then I add honey for a touch of sweetness. It has a nice warming taste that goes along with the season. It taste great.

  3. I made this juice this evening. I really want my 18 mo old to drink it. I did a 1:1:1 of sweet potato, carrot and clementine juice (freshly juiced). He would not drink it despite loving sweet potato baby food. I even kept taking it down with apple juice (bottled) to try to get him to take it. What would you recommend to mask the taste (if anything). I would also mention he doesn’t like pineapple juice. I really want him to take the sweet potato juice, as he suffers from SMA type 1, and is having difficulty gaining weight. I would love to gradually try to increase the ratio until he would be drinking only the sweet potato juice. Thank you for any advice or suggestions you may have.

    • Hi Khrystal,

      I’m so sorry and sad to hear that your baby is sick. I wish I had some advice to offer in this area, but I don’t specialize in pediatrics :( I wish I could be of more help to you. Try finding a local dietician in your area that does specialize in pediatrics, or ask your pediatrician to recommend someone.

      Best of luck my dear, I really wish I could be more of a help.


    • I would try it without the acidic fruit addition. If he likes sweet potato baby food – try a plain sweet potato juice then slowly add other ingredients. Wishing the best to you.

  4. I had a small chunk of ginger left over so I just through it all in there. Bad idea, lesson learned: ginger is potent, a little goes a long way! lol Otherwise, delicious!

  5. Can you tell me how safe it is to juice sweet potatoes. I have read conflicting things about drinking it and how bad it is for you. I would love to try this recipe and have sweet potatoes but just am scared. thanks!!

    • It’s safe! Of course there are so many conflicting things on the internet, but just ask a doctor if you’re really having doubts about something you read.

  6. Had my first taste of sweet potato and carrot juice and it was very very nice – i think the sweet potato added a somewhat creamy texture to the entire mix. I didnt add ginger as the recipe I had didnt suggest this but now that Ive found this site, I am going to give it a try the next time I make this..which will be soon :)

  7. I live in China and buy purple sweet potatoes. There are three purple varieties where I shop. Not all are purple on the inside. The one I buy is deep purple inside and out. The juice is dark colored like beet juice only purple. It is quite tasty. Have you ever tried this one? I believe it is more nutritious than the yellow or red varieties. It dominates the color of the other juices I mix in making a beautiful drink. Is it in fact more nutritious?

    • We have some purple potatoes in the United States, just depends on what store carries them. I have tried them, I don’t taste much of a difference, but the natural color is beautiful!

  8. So glad to know sweet potatoes can be juiced! What are the ‘cook’ times given in these receipes for?

  9. This juice settled my stomach this morning. I know that ginger is good for the digestion, but the combo made it a delicious remedy.

  10. Thank you for this recipe! I’m going to try it tonight! Because it does yield so much juice, can part of the batch be refrigerated?

    • If you juiced it in a centrifugal, it is recommended to be consumed immediately. If you used a twin gear or masticating then it can hold up longer. Either way, it’s just a little loss of nutrients and it can still be consumed the next day.

  11. How many calories in a juiced sweet potato? I am on day 9 of a juice fast and I think I am taking in too many calories. I lost 5lb during first 4 days but gained 1.5 lb since. Thank you for your help.

    • Apx 105-110 calories. I don’t believe you are taking in too many calories, calories are actually needed for energy, people think they are so bad, but calories just have a bad rep.

  12. I am new to juicing and I been searching the web for a recipe for juicing sweet potatoes or yams. I came across yours and I tried it. I have to tell you I loved it. One of my children don’t like veggies but since I been juicing, he loves that and this recipe you posted for juicing sweet potatoes is his favorite. I think next time I am going to try it with the oranges like Josie in the first comment tried.

  13. Came across your site when I googled recipes for sweet potato juice, I’m so glad I did! I tried this recipe and it was great! Keep up the great work!

  14. thanks for the delicious recipe!! Just made it and added a cucumber to kick the sweetness down a little, love it! :) Keep up the good work

  15. Hello Heather, great job! I’m wondering if to juice sweet potato and celery with lemon and garlic or ginger…? what’s the ‘cook time’ indicated in your preparation for?

    • Hello! The cook time is a default setting and people sometimes what to know how long something will take to make. I also make soup recipes and a few others besides smoothies, so the cook time is useful in those instances.

  16. Do sweet potatoes and regular potatoes both help with inflammation and if so how many would you use to help with pain?

    • Hi Mary, the sweet potatoes are more likely to help with inflammation because of the phytonutrients and anthocyanin in them. But it’s not like taking an aspirin for pain, there’s not “dose” for me to tell you to use to help with pain. You just need to keep up a healthy diet with other anti-inflammatory fruits and veggies daily to see the positive results over time.

  17. I have been dog sitting all week and the juicer came with them. I found your sweet potato recipe today and it is by far my favorite…and so easy. Thanks so much. I will definitely be buying a juicer.

  18. I just started Juicing and can’t wait to try this recipe! I would love to lose up to 10 pounds…just juicing help lose weight?

    • Hello Davina, glad you are excited to try this recipe. Juicing alone does not help people lose weight completely. If there is any weight loss from juicing it is probably going to be temporary if you just jump back into old habits after. They key to weight loss is a healthy diet and exercise. It’s really that simple, it just takes the knowledge and motivation to do so :-)

  19. Hi, I am on day 2 of a 5 day juice fast and feel pretty good, but my work is extremely labor intensive and i feel faint and like i don’t have enough power to make it thru the day, any suggestions?

    • Hi David!

      Yes, it’s normal to feel a little fatigued, but you need to listen to your body. If you really feel you can’t make it 3 more days, then do NOT force it. Was the point of the cleanse to clear toxins and kickstart your health? If it’s for weight loss, I can tell ya right now a quick juice cleanse won’t cut it. A transition to a healthier lifestyle with healthy eating and exercise is what is key. If you want to do this liquid thing 2 more days, I suggest some smoothies. Try ones with avocado for healthy essential fatty acids that can help satiate you as well.

    • Yes! As long as you sprayed the outside with a fruit and veggie cleaner and scrubbed it good, that is just fine to juice it.
