SWEET POTATO SWEETHEART SMOOTHIE

I absolutely love sweet potatoes!  They are super delicious, nutritious and extremely versatile.  Here sweet potato is blended with dates, nuts, seeds, and spices to make a healthy smoothie that tastes rich & decadent like pumpkin pie!

For 2 servings, blend together until smooth:

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (I like to use my Almond Cow to make homemade plant-based milk)

  • 1 cup cooked-then-frozen sweet potato

  • 1/4 cup roasted pecans and/or 2 Tbsp pumpkin seed butter

  • 1 to 2 pitted Medjool dates

  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds

  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric

  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger

  • a pinch each of cardamom, nutmeg, and black pepper

  • optional toppings: diced dates, pumpkin seeds, cacao nibs, or toppings of choice

To make this into a 'real meal deal', add 2 Tbsp Nuzest Clean Lean vanilla protein powder or Further Food collagen peptides or 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt.
