Yam and Raspberry Smoothie Recipe by Green Blender

I Yam, What I Yam

Ingredients

  • 1 cup baby yams - chopped
  • 1 pear - chopped
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 2 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1 cup ice

This is a smoothie with real substance.  Yams are high in fiber and potassium, and rich in antioxidants. They keep you full and make this smoothie rich and creamy. The pear adds even more fiber and along with the raspberries, make this smoothie a real sweet (as well as substantial) treat. Boost your healthy fat intake with walnuts and chia seeds, and you’ve got a smoothie that paves the way to start the day totally satisfied.

Yams and sweet potatoes make for a very creamy smoothie. Try the Sweet Potato Apple Bake Smoothie or the Candied Cayenne Sweet Potato Smoothie.
