Sweet Potato, Banana, Apple Smoothie… just try it!!!

Just try it!!!

I LOVE Smoothies, but I have to admit.  I get a bit lazy from time to time and get into the rather boring strawberry-banana routine.  Let’s mix it up a bit people.  We should rotate our foods weekly to get a better variety and help prevent food allergies and sensitivities. Eat a particular food no more than twice per week (every 3-4 days).  So if you have a strawberry smoothie on Monday, don’t use strawberries again until Friday (giving you body three days “rest” from that food).  More on food rotation soon.  Now, onto the smoothie!!!!

Ingredients:

  • Half a sweet potato (baked, no skin, cooled)
  • Half a banana
  • Half an apple
  • 1 tsp Vanilla (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup “milk” (I used coconut milk, you could use almond or hemp as well)
  • handful of ice cubes
  • (optional scoop of protein powder)

Blend it all up in your Vitamix.  I know the Vitamix is pricey, but it is a great investment.  They have an amazing warranty/customer service and I use it for so many things.  It has been well worth the cost. (I have not tried this in a regular blender, let me know how it turns out!)

Enjoy… no really trust me, just try it, so YUMMY!!!

Variations – Men (or very athletic girls) could easily double the recipe for a great breakfast or post workout snack.  You could also add protein powder for a more complete meal!

Update: Today I did not have an apple, so I used a red pear and I used coconut water instead of coconut milk… still yummy!!!

I had just wondered that very morning what to do with my organic sweet potato that was starting to go bad and i had just started a liquid fast!!! oh no :O haha i think it even ran thru my mind about a smoothie and i thought ‘nah that probably wouldnt work too good’…then i get this email that very same day!!! yaaay! i was so excited to go home and try it out….mmmm mmm yummy 😛 and i can say it’s that good with a ‘regular’ blender too (my sister has a vitamix and they are great but yes pricey) so i stick to the old fashioned one for now 😉 haha Thanks for caring and sharing ❤
