Candied Sweet Potato Smoothie

Posted by on Nov 27, 2011 in smoothies | 0 comments

The morning after Thanksgiving, I woke up thinking about the sweet potatoes we enjoyed the day before.  I decided to try a sweet potato smoothie by placing my left over candied sweet potatoes in my Vitamix with a cup of almond milk.  It was so completely delicious!

I have since recreated the same smoothie without using Thanksgiving leftovers, so I can enjoy this treat year round.  Because sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods, I always have a few steamed ones in my fridge to use in recipes or to just eat for a snack.  I was able to easily pull one out in the morning for my smoothie.

Combine all ingredients in a Vitamix or other blender.  Blend for 30 seconds.  Enjoy!
