Refreshing Orange Sweet Potato Parsley Juice for a gratifying thirst-quencher!
So I’m not juicing this time! However, I’m really trying to incorporate juices in my life – especially when I get tired of drinking water and coconut water! For a long while, I felt like I couldn’t really substitute the fizzy drinks and the store-bought juices – like I didn’t purchase an Omega 8004 specifically for this reason. I don’t know why, I just never grasped the concept of drinking fruit and vegetable juices as part of my everyday life – the same way I did before I went Paleo.
Now, you might be thinking; but you’ve done juice cleanses so what are you on about? Well, I swiftly raise my hands up and admit that I’m a person that goes on a juice cleanse, has an amazing period of time and then never drinks juices again until the next cleanse.
I’m human, it happens and sometimes the thought of a vegetable juice is just nauseating.
This brings me to my Orange Sweet Potato Parsley Juice. Spot on, it’s got the fruit, the vegetables and it’s a juice I want to drink like all the time. It’s sort of in the same family as my Melon Butternut Squash Juice – just has the perfect refreshment factor to it!
You can totally take this recipe and add or subtract whatever you please – just no cabbages or onions. I tried to juice those once and I cried. Literally. Revolting doesn’t even come close to describe it! I suggest some cucumbers, celery or even some spinach, if you wish.
As it is, it’s a delightful thirst-quencher for spring time – even though it’s still freezing here in the UK but oh well, it quenches thirst LOL!

Make sure to peel your oranges carefully keeping the white layer intact - has much nutrition. Also, don't bother to peel your sweet potatoes just buy organic or scrub the outer skin well!
