Got leftover sweet potatoes? Have I got a fabulous frugal recipe for you!
Before you think I have gone completely insane, I have tried at least a dozen smoothies since my purchase a few weeks ago. I have tried adding whole veggies and fruits with skins and seeds and all. They’ve all been good, but if you held a gun to my head and forced me to pick a favorite, it would be this one. This conclusively proves my theory that anything tastes better with sweet potatoes! Anything. They are nature’s perfect candy/vegetable – and a powerhouse of nutritional goodness. The Center for Science in the Public Interest has ranked sweet potatoes as number one in nutritional value among all vegetables.
Try this some night: Make a couple of baked sweet potatoes. Eat one with butter and cinnamon sugar. Yum. Then, throw the other one in the fridge for your morning smoothie – A Sweet Potato and Oatmeal smoothie sensation! You will swear that there is cream and sugar in the mix after you taste this magical concoction, but there is not. Fresh ginger gives this smoothie a little bite, the oats add creaminess, and the dates give it a richness. Such a great way to start your day!
