It’s Sweet Potato Smoothie time! This is one of those recipes you should use when you buy stuff for dinner and then never actually make dinner and order pizza instead. We have all been there, and being a big fan of potatoes I always purchase them. I like to imagine making fluffy mashed potatoes, tater tots, a gratin; you know something that will be a delicious way to consume carbs. Sadly, there are times when I come home and the last thing I want to do is turn the oven or stove on. I can however handle turning on my vitamix to make delicious and amazing smoothies. So with this simple Sweet Potato Smoothie recipe you can use leftover sweet potatoes that were possibly once destined for carb indulging side dishes. You can slurp this smoothie down for breakfast or dessert or anytime. God, I love smoothies.
