Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 oz sweet potato - scrubbed, chopped
  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Luscious yet still ranked low on the glycemic index, sweet potatoes are fat free, full of fiber, and bursting with beta-carotene. They also have proven anti-inflammatory effects. Cinnamon, another great anti-inflammatory, also contains polyphenols, high-powered antioxidants that fight back against cancer cells. Maple syrup (the natural, non-processed kind) also contains polyphenols, so besides being a hearty drink with enough clean fat and carbs to keep you going during a workout, this smoothie will give your immune system a nice, big hug.
