Sweet Potato Smoothie

Sweet Potato Smoothie

Smoothies will always be a diet go-to. They are simple, require little skill, can be made quickly, and, if done correctly, can be full of nutrients. Because of the endless possibilities, smoothies can be full meal replacements, post workout recovery aids, pre-workout fueling options, or even light snacks to quell appetites until the next meal. 

This smoothie may seem a bit odd, but trust me, it is delicious! Due to the combination of carbohydrates, proteins and phytonutrients, I would place this blend into the post workout category. 


+ 1 cup Japanese Sweet Potato, roasted + cooled
+ 1 Banana
+ 2 cups Coconut Water
+ 1 tbsp Red Maca
+ 2 scoops Collagen Peptides
+ 2 tsp Mesquite Powder
+ 2 tsp Lucuma Powder
+ Pinch Sea Salt
+ 2 tbsp Sun Butter
+ 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
+ 1/2 cup Coconut Meat



Blend until smooth! 



** For a quicker smoothie (remember your 30 minute recovery window!) I like to pre chop the banana + roasted st potato and place into freezer friendly bags so they're ready to grab and blend

** While these powders aren't a MUST... they do add flavor and many health benefits such as increasing cellular repair, tissue regeneration, low glycemic sweetness, and trace minerals. I suggest adding them to your routine.
