A Sweet Potato Smoothie That Tastes Like Ice Cream

Written by Caroline Muggia

Sweet potatoes provide a satisfying sweetness but won’t spike your blood sugar like other types of potatoes.

They’re also packed with nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, iron, magnesium, and calcium. I like to use sweet potatoes to make a healthy alternative to an ice cream shake.

This version is satisfying, delicious, and provides an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory boost.

Better Than Ice Cream Sweet Potato Smoothie

Ingredients

  • ½ cup sweet potato, cooked and mashed (no skin)
  • ½ large banana or 1 small banana (Try freezing your bananas in small chunks before adding to smoothies. It’s not necessary, but results in an icy cold, thick smoothie.)
  • 1 madjool date, pitted
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup purified water
  • 2-3 ice cubes
  • Dash of cinnamon

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Pour into a glass and dust with additional cinnamon, if desired.

Enjoy!
