3 Ways To Eat Sweet Potato & Best Sweet Potato Juice Recipe

Sweet potatoes are starchy vegetables with an appealing taste. They have a soft texture, mild flavour, and they lend themselves easily to so many dishes. On top of that, sweet potatoes are loaded with goodness and several proven health benefits.

We all get bored sometimes and wish we can find innovative ways to enjoy our favourite food types. That’s why I looked for 3 alternative ways to eat sweet potatoes. So besides the regular roasting, I came up with original sweet and savoury dishes, in addition to sweet potato juice recipes.
