maple-cinnamon sweet potato smoothie
I promise I wont bombard you all with a million sweet potato recipes. However, we are so stinking excited that our sweet potato crop is producing so well that I feel like a proud mama who needs to share the sweet potato love with you all.
Sweet potatoes bigger than my head? Yes, please! We got up at the crack of dawn to harvest a few crates of these guys to bring to market with us this afternoon. The morning was chilly but digging for sweet potatoes is a great way to warm up.
Before we head to market I wanted to share this delicious smoothie with you all. I was going to wait to write a blog post until tomorrow but since we just gulped down another one of these guys I figured I might as well share the love right away. We have been enjoying this as a mid morning snack all week long. It tastes like sweet potato pie but is full of good for you ingredients. Grab a straw and drink up!
If you are feeling brave throw in a cup of spinach to up the nutrition in this powerful smoothie! I promise you can’t taste it!
