[C]old season? Nope. Not going to do it. Flu season? Get right outta here with all that. Sniffles? Congestion? The general drags? Nobody has time for all that.
To keep the sickness bugs at bay as the days frost over and chill, I’m shoving every whole and healthy bit of produce I have into my juicer. This version is heavy on the big, bright citrus of Winter, and spiked with spicy fresh ginger.
There’s no way a cold is getting me down. #knockonwood
A good while ago, on a juicing kick, I talked a lot about juicing here: On Juicing. Since them, I’ve eaten a lot of french fries and chocolate chip cookies.
To make juice… you’re going to need a juicer. That’s just the deal. Two great juicers include the Hurom Slow Juicer and this KitchenAid Juicer Attachment that attaches directly to a stand mixer!
It’s got to be good to drink something this naturally brightly colored, right? I mean… vitamin C, vitamin A, folate and a million other awesome things! It’s a big bright glass full of health. It’s good news for our insides and outsides. Happy almost Winter!Print
Winter Citrus Booster with ginger and sweet potato
- Prep Time: 0 hours
- Cook Time: 0 hours
- Total Time: 0 hours
- 5 carrots, chopped into bite-size pieces
- 1 large sweet potato, unpeeled and chopped into bite-size pieces
- 1 tangerine, peeled and segmented
- 2–3 inches ginger, unpeeled and chopped
- 1 navel orange, peeled and sliced into bite-size pieces
- 1 grapefruit, peeled and sliced into bite-size pieces
- Because we’re working with hard root vegetables and juicy citrus, we’re going to need a pressing juicer. I’m afraid a blender won’t give you the same affect.
- Run all of the ingredients through a juicer. Enjoy immediately over ice.
- Serving Size: 2 large servings of juice
Joy, the first picture mislead me. I thought we were making winter citrus stew (by “we” I mean “you”, obvi). Can that be a thing? I that should be a thing. Would it be a good thing?
OK. If I don’t have a juicer, could I make this into some sort of soup or would it be grainy?

Looks awesome ;)
Hmm, I’ll have to try this. I love sweet potato and carrots in juices, but I tend to dislike ginger… I’m trying to get used to it!
Yes! I really need this today and what a beautiful color for the juice! Here’s to no colds this winter *knock on wood*!
In line with your festive orangeyness, add some turmeric and enjoy it’s anti inflammatory powers!
Wow. It never occurred to me that sweet potatoes can be used for juicing. This is awesome.

Such a gorgeous looking juice, Joy – love the addition of tangerine!
Fantastic idea. Pinned and looking forward to sharing in a favorites post sometime soon.
Oh, I want to make this right now! There’s nothing worse than getting sick. I do wonder about the sweet potatoes, though– is it safe to eat them raw?
Okay, this looks too good not to try. Just looking at these photos makes me feel all sunshine-y. :)
Oh I didnt know there was an attachment either I will have to get it the Booster drink looks great, Hey how are people saving their recipes know that ziplist is gone?
