Strawberry Blast Smoothie

The Recipe

For all the strawberry lovers out there, this ones for you! I came across this one by accident but was so happy that I did. What I originally thought was pairing strawberries with chocolate, I mindlessly popped a strawberry shot in the blender instead. Not wanting to waste ingredients, I gave it a shot & discovered this delicious vita-berry blast. This one is double the strawberries for double the nutrients.

Made with Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 to 1.5 cups of boiled, chilled, and mashed (skin on) purple sweet potatoes
  • 1 whole banana
  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons of almond butter 
  • 1 ½ cups of water or milk of choice

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 1 ripe banana (ripeness is a preference thing, but I like mine almost brown)
  • Add strawberries
  • Add milk of choice or water 
  • Add 2 tablespoon of almond butter of choice
  • 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.
