- Oranges: oranges are high in vitamin C and serve as an optimal immune booster. You can also use blood oranges, clementines or tangerines. Replacements I wouldn’t recommend are grapefruits (unless you want your juice to be less sweet), lemons, and limes.
- Carrot: carrots are rich in vitamin A, which contributes to healthy skin and vision.
- Sweet potato: like carrots, sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A (or rather, beta carotene, which is then converted to vitamin A in the liver). Sweet potatoes also include potassium, manganese, vitamins B5 and B6, and vitamin E.
- Turmeric: turmeric root has many anti-inflammatory benefits. The taste can be a bit strong, which is why this recipe only includes a small amount, but if you know you like it (or are feeling adventurous), feel free to include a little more.
- Peach and apricots: I made this recipe during the summer, while peaches and apricots are in season, making it a perfectly refreshing drink to enjoy on a hot day (or any day!). If you’re reading this during another season and/or don’t have access to fresh stone fruit, you can use one whole ripe mango instead (these are usually easier to find even when they’re not in season). Otherwise, ripe persimmons will turn this into a delicious autumn recipe. If you can’t find persimmons or mangoes either, more oranges or apples will work too.
How to Make This Apricot Peach Sweet Potato Juice
Step one: prepare the produce
Peel the oranges and rinse or wash the other ingredients, then pat them dry using a kitchen towel. Next, remove the pits from the peach and apricots (this is very important as the pits might damage your juicer otherwise). If you’re using a Nama J2 juicer like mine, you don’t need to cut the produce. If not, make sure you cut it into smaller pieces to fit your juicer. You can peel the sweet potato if you’d like, but you don’t need to. The skin is edible.
Step two: add everything to your juicer
If you’re using a juicer with a wide opening like mine (the Nama J2 Cold Press Juicer), all you need to do is add everything at once. If not, you’ll need to add each ingredients piece one by one.
Step three: juice
Simply turn on your juicer and let the magic happen!
Step four: serve & enjoy
Fill a couple of glasses with ice cubes and fill them with the juice. Enjoy right away!

Frequently Asked Questions
Are sweet potatoes safe to consume raw?
Yes, sweet potatoes are safe to consume raw. It is not recommended to consume regular potatoes raw, however.
What are the benefits of sweet potatoes?
Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and antioxidants, as well as beta carotene, which converts to vitamin A and supports your vision and immune system.
Is this recipe kid-friendly?
Yes! Kids may not love vegetable-only juices, but the sweetness of the fruits used in this recipe makes it perfect for kids as they’ll still get the benefits of both the fruits and the veggies, but with an overall sweet taste. Tip: either omit or reduce the amount of turmeric if you’re not sure your kid will like it!
Can I make this juice ahead of time?
Yes, but I’d recommend storing it in the fridge in an airtight glass bottle or jar and then consuming it as soon as possible. Ideally, the day of, but it will last up to 2-3 days depending on how fresh your produce is. If you choose to store it, make sure you shake it before drinking it. Also, if you need to make it even longer in advance, you can freeze it in ice cube trays and then thaw those a few hours before serving the juice.
My juice is thicker than other juices, is that normal?
Yes! Juices with stone fruits like peaches and apricots tend to be on the thicker side. That’s perfectly normal. If you don’t like that, you can make a thinner juice using more oranges and carrots and omitting the stone fruits.
Do I need to strain my juice?
Your juice may still contain a little bit of fiber, so if you prefer it very smooth, you can strain the juice before consuming it. This step is optional and depends on your personal preferences. I like mine either way!
Peaches and apricots are not in season/not available where I live. What Can I use instead?
Instead of peaches and apricots, you can use mangoes, persimmons, or even apples.
I don’t have a juicer. Can this be made without one?
If you don’t have a juicer, but are looking into purchasing one, the one I personally use and recommend is the Nama J2 Cold Press Juicer. You can read my full review here and get 10% off with my code VEGANRESET. If not, you can blend the ingredients (in which case I’d recommend removing any seeds that might be in the oranges and cutting the ingredients into small pieces first), and then filter them using a fine strainer or nut milk bag. This process might take a while and is a bit messy, but it’ll do the trick!
