One thing that really stood out to me about her smoothies was one specific ingredient: sweet potatoes.
She swears the sweet potatoes make the smoothies nice and thick, but I couldn’t help but think that sweet potatoes sounded like an odd ingredient.
Even still, I wanted to give it a try! Sweet potatoes are chock full of Vitamin A and other nutrients and I love thick smoothies…so this weekend I gave in and did it!
The sweet potato definitely made my smoothie thick and filling, and it didn’t really add any sweet potato flavor.
The smoothie was sweet and chocolatey (because I added cocoa powder) just as if I hadn’t added the sweet potato at all…but the thickness was WAY better than without this secret ingredient. I definitely recommend giving the sweet potato smoothie combo a try 🙂
