In this day and age, it's pretty popular to drink your fruits and vegetables. Smoothies and juices are a great way to add additional vitamins to your diet, and the recipes don't have to be complicated. There are a ton of 3-5 ingredient smoothie recipes, and they're perfect for people on the go.
Sweet potatoes make a great addition to your smoothie blend because they are high in Vitamin A and C, fiber, potassium, and iron, and are relatively low in calories. They're also mild in flavor, but add a sweet and nutty taste to the mix.
Combine sweet potato, banana, almond milk and a dash of cinnamon for a delicious, earthy smoothie that is reminiscent of sweet potato pie. Keep your sugar in-check by adding one or two pitted dates to sweeten up the mixture.
Coconut and sweet potato pair wonderfully together. Combine sweet potato, coconut milk, plain yogurt, nutmeg and honey for a tropical treat. You can even add some toasted coconut for texture.
We've been working with recipe developer and competitive cook, Michaela Rosenthal, who has created four delicious smoothie recipes using Bruce's Yams Cut Sweet Potatoes. Her smoothie recipes are a breeze to make and feature unique combinations like cantaloupe and nutmeg, peanut butter and tangerine, and banana and fresh ginger.
Using Bruce's Yams in your smoothies cuts down on your prep time tremendously! Plus, you won't have to worry about your fresh sweet potatoes going bad before you're able to use them. By simply draining the syrup from a can of Bruce's Yams Cut Sweet Potatoes, you dramatically reduce the sugar.
