Love it or not it is Pumpkin Spice season! We always recommend to our juice bars to stick with this trend and incorporate a seasonal juice offering to their customers. We are based in Jupiter, Florida and while we don’t have the seasonal weather change right away, we like to notice the changing seasons with the abundance of spicy and autumnal offerings in our local shops. A healthy and delicious addition to your juice bar menu is sweet potato juice. Sweet potatoes add a texture to the juice, a creaminess that blends well with carrots, oranges, pineapple and other citrus. Sweet potatoes are a greater source of beta carotene than carrots, in addition to being rich in Vitamin, Vitamin C and Vitamin E, they are rich in phytonutrients like quercetin. The sweet potato is also a good source of iron, copper, calcium, potassium as well as folate acid. Providing around 400% of your daily Vitamin A requirements this nutrient dense vegetable will assist in healthy eyes, skin even boost the immune system.
Juicing a sweet potato
You do not have to peel your sweet potato to juice it but you should make sure they are clean. If you are juicing with our Ceado ES-500 or Ceado ES-700 you likely will not have to cut up your sweet potato, depending upon the size of the sweet potato you have chosen for juicing. If you are juicing with our CP-150 Cold Press Juicer you will need to cut the sweet potato into smaller pieces so they fit in the chute. The sweet potato is a thicker juice than you might be used to so while it isn’t necessarily pulpy it does add a bit of extra creaminess to your juice.
Sweet Potato Juice Additions
You can create a juice that is sweet or even a little spicy. Ginger and turmeric can be juiced along with the sweet potatoes if you think your customers will enjoy those flavors. You can sprinkle on top some chia seeds, cinnamon, pumpkin spice or another favorite fall spice blend.
The thicker juice also makes a wonderful base for your smoothies. Juice 2 sweet potatoes in your Ceado ES-700. Pour into your blender and add a frozen banana, some spinach, almond milk, and apple and pear for a delicious fall smoothie.

Sadly, although we expect to see this thing year round nowadays, we are saying goodbye to some of the freshest berries, mangos, melons, and greens like spinach as summer fades. It is not so bad as fall is the prime season for some of our other favorite ingredients.
We understand that you are used to putting pumpkin in basically everything (how is that latte?) as soon as Labor Day has come and Halloween approaches. But as the seasons’ change, there are more than enough fall vegetables and fruits that deserve your attention this fall — and make for some great tasting and healthy juices this season.
We know you may be in south Florida, like us, and not really seeing season per se but we have a lot of readers that definitely see a change in seasons and are lucky enough to have roadside purveyors of locally farmed produce. So maybe we are not saying a complete goodbye to some berries, but fall is known as the prime season for some of our other favorite ingredients.
So why not add some of the best-tasting produce from fall to your juicing routine? Apples, pears, beets, Swiss chard, celery root and garlic are all in abundance and add more than just color and flavoring to our juices. We all know the value of the nutrients they bring.

Lemon juice has become one of the trendiest ingredients in cleansing and detox diets. According to the Global Healing Center, the citric acid in lemon juice helps the body create digestive juices and helps with its digestive process. It can also assist with kidney stones, respiratory problems, liver cleansing, and sore throats.
There is a variety of lemon cleanses online but the most popular cleanse is currently the Lemon Juice-Master Cleanse. This became the go-to trend after Beyoncé Knowles credited her weight loss for the 2006 film “Dreamgirls” to this lemonade- Master Cleanse diet. This cleanse derives from a book written by Stanley Burroughs called the “Master Cleanser;.” In this book, he first introduced this 10-day detox with the ingredients as a way to cure stomach ulcers naturally. Then in 2004 Peter Glickman reintroduced the same recipe in his book “Lose Weight, Have More Energy, and Be Happier in 10 Days,” as a detox to cleanse, re-energize and quickly lose weight.
This diet is praised by many for its ability to shed up to 20 pounds within a 10-day period. The cleanse requires a 10-day diet of the Lemon Juice-Master Cleanse recipe. Those on the diet are advised to not consume any solids or additional foods except for laxative tea in the morning and at night.
We recommend the Ceado S98 and SL98 Commercial Electric juicers as great lemon juicers for this recipe. For more information on the Lemon Cleanse and the research behind it visit Mastercleanse.com.
This carrot mango recipe is an easy way to get some mangoes in your diet while they’re in peak season. Mangoes aid with weight loss and digestion. They can also help lower cholesterol levels and help those with diabetes by regulating insulin levels. Just 2 cups of mangoes make up about 35% of the daily recommended amounts of Vitamin A for the body. This anti-cancerous fruit does more than just lower cancer risks, it also lowers the risk of kidney stones.
Carrots are also filled with antioxidants, they’re anti-cancerous and rich in vitamin A which makes them a great addition to one’s diet for continuous eye care. Like mangoes, carrots are also a heart healthy option since they also aid in lowering LDL cholesterol levels.
We recommend you juice the carrots and blend the mangoes to achieve the best taste. You may use your choice of fresh or frozen mangoes for this recipe.
