I know it sounds weird, but the sweet potato really just adds texture and some healthiness.
Growing a bit tired of my standard peanut butter waffle , I realized it’s been a while since I made a smoothie for breakfast. When it was warm outside, I had a smoothie for breakfast almost every morning, but they make me so cold. I just couldn’t stand it when the temperature started to drop. Since the morning temperature today was in the mid-sixties, it seemed like a good day for a smoothie. Here’s what I used:
- 1 1/2 cups of almond milk
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 2 cups of spinach
- half of a baked sweet potato (just scoop out the inside…no skin!)
- 2 tablespoons of PB2
- 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
- 2 table spoons of vanilla flavor
- 8-10 ice cubes
Put the almond milk and the spinach in a blender and mix until combined. Dump the rest of the ingredients in the blender and blend away. It filled my 24 oz. Tervis cup. I accompanied the smoothie with a large cup of coffee to maintain my body temperature. It was a good morning.
