Sweet Potato Smoothie Bowl by Fabyoufit
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, in my opinion, so I like start my day by consuming something healthful. I love eggs, but on those rare occasions I want to switch it up, I opt for a smoothie bowl. Not only are they easy to make, they’re fun.
During the fall/winter season, I like to use sweet potato or pumpkin puree as my base. Add whatever toppings you like, within reason. Remember, we’re talking about healthful options like fresh fruit, nut butters and seeds. Be creative, there’s no right or wrong. Let your taste buds decide for you.
Sweet Potato Smoothie Bowl
2 medium sweet potatoes
1 cup rice milk or milk of your choice
½ tsp Cinnamon
½ tsp ginger
½ tsp vanilla
2 frozen bananas
Handful ice cubes
Chia, flex, hemp seeds
Bake Sweet Potato at 450 an 1 hour 15 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes. Scoop out sweet potato and discard the skin. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight. Toss into blender with other ingredients. Blend well in Vitamix or (whatever blender you have on hand) until desired consistency, should be slightly thick. Remember you don’t want your toppings to sink to the bottom. Pour into bowl, add toppings. The rest is history!
*Substitute sweet potato with pumpkin puree
*Try using organic products when possible.
