Lately I've been dabbling with putting more and more vegetables in my smoothies. Kale, spinach, cauliflower rice, frozen zucchini.......sweet potato.
Yes...sweet potato. I don't think I will go back to putting bananas in my smoothie because....SWEET POTATO. On their own, they are so creamy, filling, and sweet. Put it in a smoothie and it's a game changer. Seriously, this was the creamiest and most satisfying smoothie I've ever made. Packed with veggies that you can't taste, it has lots of that good good (vitamins and such) and natural sweeteners. Besides the gross color, I promise this is a delicious treat!
VEGGIE PACKED SMOOTHIE
100 g sweet potato (roughly 1/2 of a medium sweet potato cooked- no skin)
1 cup cauli rice
1 cup spinach
1/4 cup blueberries
2 scoops collagen (or your favorite protein powder, I use collagen because it's unflavored and 2 scoops is about 22 grams of protein...gainz)
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp maple syrup
-Poke holes in sweet potato and microwave for about 4 minutes until soft, scrape into blender and throw away the skin. Keep the other half for another smoothie!
-Add everything into the blender and blend for 1 minute. Consistency should be thick, but add a little more almond milk when needed!
And there you go! Like I said, you honestly cannot taste any of the veggies in here. It’s creamy, smooth and sweet but filling enough to last you until your next meal. I can’t have much fat on RP until night time, but I would have added coconut butter to make it extra good. Enjoy!
