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.
1/2 cup (4 ounces) fresh sweet potato juice from about 1 medium sweet potato, peeled
1/4 cup (2 ounces) fresh carrot juice from about 1 large carrot
1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) lime juice from 1 lime (see note)
3/4 cup (6 ounces) orange juice from 1 to 2 large oranges (see note)
Stir juices together thoroughly, divide between two glasses, and serve immediately.
