Purple Sweet Potato Smoothie Recipe by Green Blender

Purple Sweet Potato

Ingredients

  • 1 cup purple sweet potato - chopped

  • 1/2 tsp maqui powder
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk

We swear we didn’t just use purple sweet potatoes for their beautiful color, although that’s one added sensory benefit. Purple sweet potatoes are the perfect immune booster. They are rich in beta-carotene (a potent antioxidant), vitamin C, vitamin B complex, iron and phosphorus. Macqui powder provides a sweet taste and tons of antioxidant power. They don’t call it a superfruit for nothing! Sip this smoothie and you’ll be feeling like a superhero.

Sweet potatoes (purple or orange) make smoothies extra creamy. Try the Sweet Potato Apple Bake or the I Yam, What I Yam Smoothie.
