From the Juicer: Orange Sweet Potato Juice

Although sweet potato is often juiced for its nutrients, it's also a lesser known source of subtle creaminess in terms of both flavor and texture. I won't pretend this juice tastes like dessert, but it really does have an undertone of creamsicle.

Note: For best flavor, remove peel and all pith from citrus fruit using a sharp knife before juicing. If your juicer has multiple speeds, juice citrus on low speed. Alternatively, use a citrus juicer or reamer for citrus fruit.
