Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen cubed sweet potato (or sub frozen cubed butternut squash)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk, plus more as necessary
  • ½ cup plain greek yogurt (whole, 2% or fat free will all work)
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter or pecan butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of ground cloves

Instructions

  1. In a large high-powered blender, add in all ingredients and blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until all ingredients are well combined. If necessary, add in more almond milk to thin the smoothie. If desired, drizzled with almond butter and sprinkle with your favorite granola. Makes 1 smoothie.

Recipe Notes

Optional add-ins:

oats: to add a little heartiness to your smoothie and to help thicken it, feel free to add in 1/3 cup oats. Do not use steel cut oats as they will not blend well.

flaxseed meal: this is one of my favorite ingredients to add to smoothies for a little boost of fiber and minerals, and is especially great for nursing mamas as flaxseed can help increase milk supply. Usually a tablespoon is plenty!

chia seeds: feel free to add in a tablespoon of chia seeds to your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats and fiber.

hemp seeds: if you’ve been wondering what to do with those hemp seeds lurking in your cupboard, feel free to throw in a tablespoon into your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats, omegas and minerals.

spinach: if you’re looking to get more greens in your smoothie, try adding a cup or two of raw or cooked spinach. You’ll never be able to taste it, but just know that it may change the color of your smoothie to brown depending on what other fruit you use.

protein: easily add more protein to a smoothie by adding 1/2 cup greek yogurt or 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder. I recommend Vital Protein collagen peptides or Bob’s Red Mill Plant Based Vanilla Protein Powder.

frozen cauliflower: feel free to throw in a cup of frozen cauliflower to thicken your smoothie even more and get extra veggies in. You won’t even be able to taste it!
