I'm so glad to finally have a blender, so I can create (and borrow) smoothie recipes again. I credit smoothies with helping me transition to a plant-based lifestyle and try to drink at least 2 per day.
This recipe is from Jenné at Sweet Potato Soul.
1 1/2 cups Brazil or Almond Milk (I used soy milk)
1 baked sweet potato, flesh only
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or mix of cinnamon and nutmeg)
1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (I used 1/2 tbsp instead)
2 tbsp coconut milk
1/2 cup pecans (I used walnuts)
In a blender, mix all ingredients (save coconut milk and pecans) until smooth. Taste and make any necessary additions. Serve in a glass, and top with a dollop of coconut milk or cream, and pecans.
I froze my cooked sweet potato for about 30 minutes before adding to the blender for a chilled dessert.
