I've been reading so much about pumpkin smoothies these days...why not sweet potato? But would it be weird with vanilla? Who knows. Banana? Ick...no. So I set out with my work horse of a blender, my pre-mashed sweet potatoes, Very Vanilla Soy milk, some flax meal, and in the end threw in some frozen mango chunks, just in case. It took some coxing, but eventually it all smoothed out into a velvety, thick concoction.
I'm not going to lie, that first sip with a bit questionable. It's sweet potatoes...but it's not. It's thanksgiving....but I'm drinking it. Half way through my 16oz my mind is made up. This is friggin' fantastic!!! Such a nice change up from my daily banana/blueberry/kiwi...blah blah blah...and without the addition of ice, its not so teeth numbing, especially in these single digit temps we're having right now.
Love learning new things every day!
