It’s officially squash/yam season I could not be more excited!!! I’ve been eating butternut squash and pumpkin up the wazoo, but am officially moving on to sweet potatoes thanks to this delicious smoothie. This sweet potato smoothie recipe is basically Fall in a cup.
Like my pumpkin oatmeal, it has all the warming and delicious flavors of fall, but it’s a smoothie (clearly!) so it’s perfect since September can still be pretty warm out (at least over here in Boston).
- Sweet potato: Because sweet potato smoothie, duh! You can use sweet potato puree made from scratch, or sweet potato puree from a can. Both are delicious!
- Banana: For creaminess and sweetness. This recipe calls for frozen banana, but you can sub fresh banana with no problem. I’d just suggest you add a handful of ice so the smoothie is cold and thick.
- Dates: For sweetness. You can add an extra date if your taste buds prefer, or sub for honey or maple syrup!
- Hemp hearts: The hemp hearts add tons of nutrients, healthy fats, and protein to keep you full.
- Cinnamon: This adds lots of flavor and also helps to stabilize your blood sugar (source).
- Nutmeg: For extra flavor and all that Fall deliciousness.
- Non-dairy milk: To get the smoothie blending and for creaminess! You can use any non-dairy milk, but I love coconut and almond milk best.
How do you make it sweet?
Fruit! I always keep my smoothies naturally sweetened and don’t like to use any maple syrup or honey. Stick to the whole stuff when it comes to smoothies! Bananas, dates and mango are great to sweeten smoothies. For this recipe, we’ll be using banana, dates, and sweet potato to help give this smoothie the best flavor.
How much liquid should I add?
It totally depends on whether you are using fresh or frozen fruit and how thick you like your smoothies to be! I usually start with about 1 cup of liquid and adjust as needed. If you have a high speed blender, you can get away with less liquid, but it all depends on your preferences.
How do you make it thick?
This smoothie is made nice and thick thanks to frozen banana! Start off with a small amount of liquid and adjust to your liking to ensure the smoothie stays thick. However, if you overdo it on the milk and want to thicken it up, you can add in extra frozen banana or a handful of ice.
