I wish the weather would feel a little more like fall even though I did have a flurry of really fun activities involving pumpkins and hayrides this past weekend. I was home for my high school reunion (20 years-omg!) and my mom and I took my niece to this local farm with a ton of fun stuff to do. We went on a hayride, picked a few pumpkins, ran through a maze of hay and got in all of the fall activities that is essential in October. I came back to the city today and realized I have a sweet potato that needs to be cooked. So, as I got ready to steam it, I realized how easy it would be to put into a smoothie and make a fall treat.
Orange veggies are awesome because they contain beta carotene which is essential for a healthy immune system and healthy eyes and skin. Sweet potatoes have fiber and a ton of vitamins and minerals and they are sweet but don't cause your blood sugar to crash. I started eating sweet potatoes in the morning for breakfast instead of oats and I really dig the flavor mixed with peanut butter and some cinnamon.
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and steamed
2 frozen bananas
2 tbsp of peanut butter
2 tsp of turmeric
