My favorite part of Thanksgiving? Not the turkey. Not the green beans, the mashed potatoes, the cranberry sauce, or even the pumpkin pie. Since I was a little girl, yams have always been my favorite, and even now I eat sweet potatoes and yams almost every day. I have wanted to make a Sweet Potato Pie smoothie for ages, but just got around to it. The verdict? AMAZING! I can’t believe I let laziness (who likes baking sweet potatoes?) hold me back from making this for so long!
Sweet Potato Pie Green Smoothie
1 frozen banana
1 cooked sweet potato (chopped and frozen if desired)
1 c. almondmilk
1 c. spinach
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 T. maple syrup
1 tsp. cinnamon
Boosts: (flaxseed, chia seed, protein powder, spirulina, bee pollen, avocado pit)
Blend until smooth, sip, and savor:)
Okay, so it’s an orange smoothie. I put a whole cup of greens in, but I guess sweet potatoes have a pretty strong color! I must say this with every green smoothie post I write, but this one is a keeper! It’s so filling and is perfect topped with granola, muesli, or coconut. It may seem a bit out of season, but it’s so refreshing and cold that it’s the perfect summer breakfast!
Yes to making the healthy options the delicious ones!:)
