How to make a sweet potato smoothie
The day before, you will need to make your sweet potato cubes so that they can have time to freeze until solid.
You can read my post on how to steam cauliflower for my favorite method for steaming vegetables at home without an actual steamer.
It only takes a few minutes and is easy to clean up!
Just peel and dice your sweet potato, steam until fork tender, and remove to cool for a few minutes on a plate.
Once slightly cooled, transfer the cooked sweet potato cubes to a ziploc bag and freeze until solid.
I like to keep extra on hand for easy smoothie making, so often times I will steam 3 sweet potatoes at once to have extra for later.
Sweet potatoes and bananas are great for freezing and adding to smoothies to get that great creamy texture that everyone loves.
To make your smoothie, add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
I love the taste of almond butter in this smoothie and it pairs so well with the fall taste of sweet potato!
As usual, we are using pure maple syrup to sweeten it up just a touch.
Pure maple syrup and honey are the go to healthier sweeteners around here.
You can use any milk you like, such as 2%, whole, almond milk, or soy milk.
Any basic unflavored milk, dairy free or otherwise, will work.
I am obsessed with how creamy and delicious this recipe was!
Sweet potatoes are amazing and so healthy for you, and smoothies are a great way to sneak extra veggies in.
