Spiced Yam Juice

From The Moon Juice Cookbook, Amanda Chantal Bacon.

I incorporate raw yams into my diet whenever I can, as they are incredible for short-term memory support and hormonal harmony. This blend is not too sweet—it’s a deeply grounding, earthy concoction using just a touch of apple to bring these three golden roots out of the ground and into your glass. My favorite element of the Spiced Yam is its almost chewy mouthfeel—radiant carrot juice teases out yam’s every last milky mineral. Paired with ginger’s spice and the aromatic oils of pressed cinnamon, this is a uniquely rich juice.


4 sweet red apples, such as Red Delicious

5 cups coarsely chopped orange-fleshed sweet potatoes (about 6 small or 3 large)

1 pound carrots (8 thin medium carrots)

1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


Feed the apples, sweet potatoes, carrots, and ginger into a juicer, alternating among the ingredients. Stir in the cinnamon and serve.
