Pumpkin Pie Spiced Smoothie with Sweet Potato

 
Pumpkin Pie Spiced Smoothie with Sweet Potato

I wanted to create a fall smoothie that captured the tastes of the season– savory, warm, and reminiscent of the famed PSL. I could have taken the traditional road and added canned pumpkin to the smoothie, but I wanted to go a bit of a different route while still invoking those must-have fall flavors. I decided to try out a pumpkin pie spiced smoothie with sweet potatoes, I mean, there’s sweet potato pie so why not? It turned out being REALLY good, especially when paired with bananas, dates and of course pumpkin pie spice, which I make myself (recipe here). We can’t forget the pumpkin pie spice!

 
I am all over the sweet potatoes and/or candied yams during Thanksgiving, in fact, for me it’s the best part of Thanksgiving and gives me major fall vibes. This smoothie is also completely vegan! If you’re looking to ‘spice’ up your breakfast, give this pumpkin pie spiced smoothie a try:

Ingredients
  1. 1 Sweet Potato (small, about 1/2 - 2/3 cup)
  2. 1 Banana
  3. ~5-6 Dates, pitted & chopped
  4. 1 cup Almond Milk
  5. 1/4 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
  6. Optional: 1/2 scoop Vega Vanilla Protein Smoothie Powder
Instructions
  1. Prior to making the smoothie you will need to bake, steam, or microwave the sweet potato and let cool completely-- put in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. I also find it's best to let the chopped and pitted dates soak in water (about 1/4 cup or so) for about 15-20 minutes to soften so they blend really well.
  2. Add all ingredients to blender, along with ice. Blend, pour into a glass and top with another sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. TRY THIS: Substitute the sweet potato/yam with pumpkin or butternut squash for more yummy fall flavors!
