Sweet Potato Smoothie Recipe:
Puree from 1 small - medium sweet potato
1/4 cup frozen zucchini
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tbsp raw cacao nibs
Pinch of cinnamon
1 tsp maca powder (optional)
1 tbsp tahini
1. To bake your sweet potato, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C). Wrap each sweet potato in aluminum foil and place them on the middle rack of the oven and set a kitchen timer for 30 - 40 minutes (until you can easily pierce the skin with a fork). After they have cooled down peal the skin off and place them in the freezer (I place them in a zipper bag and reuse it to make it more eco-friendly). *I do this as part of my Food Prep Sunday
2. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
3. Pour into a bowl and garnish.
