Sweet Potato's are for eating Not drinking

Free for All

Posted by Piwacket on 5 years ago

I just made the Peach (or Pear) Pie Delight and I must say YUK! Sweet potato's are great for eating not so much for drinking. I even found the consistency unappealing ... liquid sweet potato, I think not. I drank it, but not while smiling. It sounded good, but the sweet potato overpowered the other flavors of apple, blueberries and pear. Any suggestions? I know this drink is on the 3-day 2014 fast, I'll drink it if I have to, but there has to be a better option. Peaches aren't available. Help!!!! Please don't make me drink this - I still have another serving sitting in the fridge that I will drink tomorrow ... I'll have nightmares about drinking it.

    you don't have to drink it! In fact, I bet since sweet potatoes and peaches are so high in sugar, if you replaced that juice with another green based juice, you'd probably see better results as less sugar is best for weight loss. If you still want that sweet juice, just replace the peach pie juice with another fruit based juice that you find appealing.

    Never force yourself to drink something you don't like.

    Add cinnamon!!! I personally love this juice, but only with cinnamon added. Try it, it will taste better!

    The worst I ever had was my regular juice with red pepper added to it. I threw it away.

    If you find the juice really gross, it could turn you off juicing. I'd get rid of it and make something different.

    I LOVE juicing sweet potatoes and I HATE eating them. Did you know ONE sweet potato has 377% of the FDA recommended Vitamin A? Did you know Vitamin A reduces wrinkles?? (Big AHA! here) I found a recipe of 1/4 pineapple, 1 med sweet potato/yam, 4-5 carrots - you can sub oranges for the pineapple if it's unavailable in your area... but this is the one of my FAVORITE juices. Add citrus/pineapple to taste - I have found some recipes are too gammy for me and I have to sweeten them up. I haven't tried cinnamon, but that could tip the scales on the flavor too. This juice is definitely higher in sugars but I don't believe juicing should be just about weight loss, it's also about the nutrients and phyto-chemicals you are putting into your body to assist with healing. You'll need to shake/stir the drink as I have found a white film on the bottom of my glass, but once stirred I think it helps the smoothness and texture.

    Yes, should yield between 8-12 oz depending on your machine and fruit/veg. Sweet potatoes are SO very good for you... and even my mother (the "I don't juice" woman) likes it. I would love to know what you think of it - no expectations, just honest feedback.

    Okay, I had to pop in here to save the day, If you like "Pumpkin Pie" you'll love this, I call it "Pumpkin Pie in a Jar" since I pour most my juices into a Mason Jar.

    Pumpkin, Persimmons (Fuyu), Carrots, Sweet Potato

    (Optional; throw in some leafy Greens, they won't effect the flavor) Make sure the Persimmon's are hard like an apple (much easier to juice this way and that's when they're the ripest). The Persimmons and the Carrots sweeten the pumpkin so it tastes like a liquid Pumpkin Pie.

    Normally when I make this I do approx:
    Pumpkin (say 2 lbs), Persimmon & Carrots ( Half pound each) & a Big Sweet Potato

    If you want it sweeter add more Persimmon's & Carrots.

    Notice the ratio Persimmon's & Carrots combined equal Half the Pumpkin, so if you juice more Pumpkin then just increase the ratio across the board....

    Thanks everyone, I tried to chug the second serving down this morning (watching the snow pile up-snowing since yesterday) - I hated to waste it, but tossed it. I like eating sweet potatoes, but for me I'm not drinking them. I'm checking out the other "dessert" drinks to find one that better suits my taste buds to use as a substitute. I have a pineapple, I'll check out what will make a good mix.

    it is all about adaptation...if you do not like it...change...my body does not digest - cucumber - celery - watermelon and mellow - well...so i make changes when the recipe asks for them...what ALWAYS help me : pineapple and ginger! they make everything better to me...do not allow the taste that you do not like become your saboteur - and produce avoidance and escapism....you can be creative and will make your path....and very soon you will writing to us to share the new recipes that you invented....be focused and compassion towards your journey! best!
