Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Smoothie
Updated: May 29, 2019
I don't always drink smoothies after I workout. As much as I love them, I am always bummed out by how quickly they are gone. But, when I have a little more macro leeway (like right now), I can add smoothies here and there and not feel like I'm "wasting" all my precious carbs.
The beauty of any smoothie recipe is that they are totally customizable. Feel free to take this recipe and make it your own! Some option for additions are: cacao powder, nuts, swapping almond powder for peanut powder, zucchini or spinach, or ginger/chili powder. If you try this out, let me know!
150g frozen baked sweet potato (without skin)
100g raw summer squash
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Bad Athletics Vanilla Cream)
1c unsweetened almond milk
Dash of cinnamon and cardamom
Pinch of sea salt
12g powdered peanut butter (I used Crazy Richard's PB powder)
Add all ingredients except for the powdered pb to a high speed blender. Blend on high for a few seconds, then decrease speed to medium-low until smooth (this ensures that the shake stays nice and thick, and doesn't get too frothy). Pour into a cup and top with powder pb. Gently stir, and enjoy yummy little pockets of pb mixed throughout.
