I’m always interested in smoothie recipes that are quick, easy, healthy, and most of all TASTY!
I came across this one and wanted to share it with you. It’s full of antioxidants, phytonutrients, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D and vitamin A. The protein boost keeps your blood sugar levels stable and keeps you satisfied for longer. Enjoy!
Tracy Anderson’s Sweet Potato Smoothie
1 sweet potato
1 cup milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp turmeric
Puncture holes in sweet potato and microwave 5 to 8 minutes until soft, rotating halfway through. Scoop out from skin and let cool. Blend with milk, protein powder, cinnamon and turmeric and enjoy. If you have a high power blender, such as a Vitamix, you can even leave the skin on the potato to add even more nutrients.
