Every time I come across a new favorite juice or a new juice discovery, I feel like I need to share it so that everyone can experience it too. Which is why I’m sharing this Beta-Carotene Antioxidant Boost recipe today! It’s full of sweet potato, carrot, mango and pineapple, and it just couldn’t be any more delicious.

This juice get’s it’s beautiful color from the beta-carotene in the sweet potato and carrots. The pineapple adds a great anti-inflammatory property to it. Annnd it’s just loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants… the list goes on! This means that it’s great for your skin, for your eyes, and for your immune system. And since you’re drinking these fruits and veggies in their raw state, you get the added benefit of immediate nourishment.

Juicing is the best! But, why would this be a new discovery for me, you ask?

Wellll, I’ve never juiced sweet potatoes before!

I eat them often. I juice often.

I know that sweet potatoes are chock-full of vitamin A and other nutrients, but juicing them is something that has never come to mind.

UNTIL… I tried a smoothie made with sweet potatoes the other day.

I was a bit hesitant to order this sweet potato smoothie at first, but I couldn’t resist it’s name, “24 CARROT GLOW”.

Plus I loved everything inside of it (mango, sweet potato, pineapple, and carrots)… so I decided to give it a go.

After my first sip, it was clear that this fruit and veggie combo is genius!

So, I immediately put my mind to making a juice version of this smoothie…. this Beta-Carotene Antioxidant Boost!

I love this new juice so much! And it’s not only because it is a new delicious and healthy juice to add to my juicing rotation, but it’s also because it satisfied a bread craving that I was having. Anything that does that, is good in my book! 🙂
