Top o’ the mornin’ everyone! 8)
Before I begin, I must say, yesterday’s WIAW party was AWESOME! You guys sure have some incredible eats, I always get so many neat ideas!
I decided to have fun with a “scheduled post” since Thursdays are my gnarly, busy days (i.e. classes from 8-5:30 eww). I hope this works, I’ve never tried it before!
In the past, I’ve gotten a lot of questions/comments about my sweet potato smoothies, so I thought I’d dedicate a post to them! I’ll also be adding this link to my recipes page if you wanna reference back to it.
**If you follow these steps, I guarantee you will have happy taste buds, a happy belly, and be a happy human.
~~Best Sweet Potato Smoothie~~
#1 Bake a sweet potato in the oven at 350*F for an hour.
#2 Once cool, peel off the skin and stick it in the fridge overnight in a paper towel or plastic baggie so it won’t ooze all over the other food in there.
#3 In the morning, plop the tater in your blender/magic bullet/holy kitchen smoothie device.
#4 Add liquid of choice. (I use about 1/2 cup-1 cup soymilk)
#5 Add nut butter of choice. (I use about a tablespoon and a half of sunflower seed butter) This part’s optional, but it makes the smoothie 10,000,000x more delicious than it already is.
#6 Add in ice for ultimate thickness along with a serving of protein powder. (I like vanilla in my smoothies) You can also add in xanthan or guar gums if you’re in a rebellious mood.
#7 Blend like the dickens and try not to gnaw your arm off in anticipation. Feel free to ooh and ahh as it changes into a pretty shade of orange.
#8 Stick a straw in that baby and SLURP like nobody’s business. Just don’t chug too fast, brain freezes are no fun.
#9 Scrape the sides of the cup clean and try not to cry too hard when it’s over.
Ya know, it’s smoothies like these that make me not miss oats at all. Mr. Allergy, you have no grip on me, ha!
That’s all from me today folks!
Have a great rest of the week!
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve put in a smoothie? How do you like to eat sweet potatoes? Do you ever use scheduled posts when you’re busy?
