A sweet, decadent and healthy smoothie that’s so good, you could swear you are having dessert for breakfast 😉
I feel like the last couple of posts I have been sharing have been “hello from ___”! And today, well, hello from New Jersey! Chris and I took a trip back to his hometown to visit his family, some of our friends and attend a wedding, and we decided to make a 3 week trip out of it and enjoy our time out here!
This recipe is a part of our Sweet Potato Breakfast Series where we created 5 sweet potato-centric meals you can enjoy in the morning, or whenever you please.For one thing, I wanted to help convert those who aren’t sweet potato fans to newfound sweet potato fanatics. This all stemmed from Chris not loving them as much as I do, and my dedication to convince him otherwise 😛 Also because of how nutritionally dense these spuds are. Did you know sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) and are a good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, potassium, dietary fiber, iron, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus? Yes, the list just goes on and on and basically, they are a nutritional powerhouse and a food we should consider often in our diets.
This sweet potato pie smoothie bowl is a perfect way to fuel your day, and you can enjoy it for breakfast, lunch OR dinner (at least I do 😉 )!
Make sure you tag us on Instagram @sweetsimplevegan and @consciouschris and hashtag #sweetsimplevegan if you recreate any of our recipes, we love to see your photos!
Place all of the smoothie ingredients into a high speed blender, and process until smooth.
Pour into a bowl and add toppings of choice.
To bake sweet potatoes: Thoroughly wash and prick your sweet potatoes each 2-3 time with a fork or knife. Wrap them in parchment paper and then with foil, then place them directly on the oven rack in the middle of the oven. Turn the oven on to 425F and bake for 40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft. Cool completely before using.
If you don’t have an oven, you can boil or steam the sweet potatoes, or even opt or canned!
