Paleo Sweet Potato Smoothie

Is there anything a sweet potato can't do? Well, probably, but adding delicious flavor and texture to a healthy smoothie is not one of them. Creamy and refreshing, this Paleo-friendly recipe is the perfect way to make use of leftover sweet potatoes when you're craving something sweet and satisfying. Sweet potatoes boast plenty of beta carotene, and their Vitamin A and C content make them excellent immunity boosters. Not to mention, one medium sweet potato provides roughly 4 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, and just 162 calories.

This simple Paleo Sweet Potato Smoothie is healthy, easy, and so nutritious!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup baked sweet potato, skins removed and washed
  • 1 carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tablespoon chia
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed collagen
  • Maple Pancake Paleonola, for topping

Directions:

  1. To bake your sweet potato, preheat oven to 400 degrees F and split in half lengthwise. Lightly oil and place face down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake until soft - 25-30 minutes. Or, to steam, place in a steamer basket over 2 inches of simmering water and cover to steam for roughly 5-10 minutes or until fork tender. Let cool slightly before adding to blender. 
  2. Add all ingredients except for the Paleonola to a high- speed blender and blend until smooth. 
  3. Top with Paleonola Maple Pancake for added crunch and enjoy!
