This orange sweet potato juice tastes nothing like sweet potato. I asked my husband to try it and he didn’t even know that sweet potato was in it. With 6 to 8 oranges you can pretty much dominate the juice and still get a hint of sweet potato pie. Making this juice delicious and nutritious for everyone in your family to enjoy. Give it a try and let me know if your family can tell if sweet potato is in it?
