Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

 This is one of my go to smoothies, especially during the fall. This sweet potato smoothie is sweet, healthy, filling, and tastes like a pumpkin, or sweet potato pie! You can bake up the potatoes over the weekend for a quick and easy weekday breakfast smoothie. Even my kids love this one. You can double or triple the recipe if making it for the family!

Ingredients:

  • 1 baked sweet potato

  • 1 1/2 cups plant based milk

  • 1/2 -1 cup ice

  • a few shakes of cinnamon

  • 2 dried dates, or 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • optional: 1 scoop of vegan protein powder

  • optional: 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Peel baked sweet potato, Add it along with remaining ingredients to a blender and process until completely smooth. You can start with a half cup of ice and add more according to your preference. Top with a few shakes of extra cinnamon.

You can easily double the recipe if making multiple smoothies at one time. I often just bake up a half dozen sweet potatoes over the weekend and keep them in the fridge for smoothies throughout the week.
