Blueberry Apple Spice Vita Smoothie

The Recipe

Blueberry, Apple & Chai..oh my! When experimenting with our Chai power shot, I wanted to figure out a blend that would highlight the spice but not make it overpowering. Which led me to bringing blueberry & apple into the equation. This trio makes for a perfect blend of sweet, tart & spice which delivers all day nutrition & taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 to 1.5 cups of boiled, chilled, and mashed (skin on) purple sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of diced apple
  • 2 tablespoons of almond butter 
  • 1 ½ cups of water or milk of choice 
  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of sea salt

Instructions

  • Boil purple sweet potatoes for 45 minutes at a medium/high boil (skin on)
  • Drain and let potatoes cool at room temp, before storing in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled. I prefer to let them chill for a full 24 hours.
  • Once chilled, mash thoroughly with skin on, until you have lumpy mashed potato consistency.
  • Add 1 to 1.5 cups of mashed purple sweet potato to blender ( I prefer a cup and a half as I like to eat mine with a spoon, it's that good :)
  • Add berries and diced apples
  • Add milk of choice or water 
  • Add cinnamon
  • Add 2 tablespoons of almond butter
  • Secure lid tightly
  • Blend for about 20 seconds, you will want a glistening appearance as that means the starches have been properly blended and you will get the creamiest consistency this way.
