A Little HistorySweet potatoes were eaten long before the regular potatoes that we know today. They were grown in South America as long ago as the Incas. In England its known that King Henry VIII loved sweet potatoes as much as he did women, in fact it was thought that the sweet potato was an aphrodisiac!
Buying and StoringBuy the medium sized ones as the bigger ones can be a bit tough. The potato should feel firm. Dont buy ones which are sprouting. Keep in a cool dark place and they will store for at least a week.

Sweet Potato Juice Recipe using RawLots of people think they must cook potatoes and therefore blend the potatoes before they can be used in a juice. This is simply not true. In fact by cooking the potatoes you are losing lots of the lovely nutrients and enzymes which the potato contains. Take the raw potato and simply pop it into your juicer like you would any other vegetable - the taste is amazing. Once juiced the sweet potato has a thick milky texture which can be added to fruit juice to make a smoothie as an alternative to milk. The result is a lovely creamy taste. Are you ready to make a sweet potato juice recipe? Just take the ingredients and put them into your juicer. Pour into a glass with ice and enjoy.
