AMAZING SWEET POTATOES: What I am making for my class party

My English students are gong to graduate this week. For the graduation, we are going to have an “international food party” where everyone brings some *healthy* ‘lunch” food from their country. With Thanksgiving coming up, my students were curious about Thanksgiving coming up, the students were curious about what we eat, and when I mentioned sweet potatoes, they were very interested.


This is a raw food Thanksgiving (or any time) recipe that has never failed me. Raw foodists like it, and people who eat “regular food” like it as well.I like it because it is delicious and easy to prepare. I like this recipe because everyone who eats it likes it — even people who do not eat raw food. (I hope I will have some leftovers to bring home)


2 – 3 sweet potatoes (or yams)
1 C coconut, dried
2 apples
1/4 C ginger root
4 lemons juiced
2 oranges, juiced
1 C walnuts, chopped fine

Chop sweet potatoes, apples, and ginger, and process through the Champion juicer with blank plate. (Alternatively, process sweet potatoes, apples, and ginger in a food processor).

Place mixture in a large bowl. Add shredded dried coconut, lemon juice, orange juice, and chopped walnuts.

• Mix thoroughly

For a smoother consistency, in the food processor, process all ingredients throughly.
