It’s not too early for squash! After all, it’s already August 28. In a few days it will be September, then it will be October, which is basically Halloween, right? One of my favorite things to drink during the autumn season is this Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie. It tastes like fall in a glass. I came across a version of this smoothie by Rebecca Ffrench while watching Naturally, Danny Seo. However, as I continued to make it, I learned some tips and tricks, stopped following the recipe, and it morphed into something of my own.
To start, gather sweet potatoes, bananas, vanilla flavored almond milk (or unflavored, but substitute with vanilla extract), peanut butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
The sweet potatoes need to be roasted prior to blending. I roast a bunch of sweet potatoes at once on a Sunday, and then freeze it in ice cube trays and keep them in the freezer. These sweet potato cubes will last me for weeks. Then, when I’m in the mood, I just toss a few in the blender.
This smoothie is so delicious. I’d be lying if I said I’m not drinking one right now. Happy pumpkin spice season!
