Vegan Purple Sweet Potato Smoothie (glutenfree, food allergy friendly)

Have you ever seen such a vibrant smoothie?! What gives it this glorious hue?

Purple Sweet Potatoes!

I love to add veggies to my smoothies -- some of my favorites are spinach, kale and carrots. When I spied purple sweet potatoes at Trader Joe's the other day, I knew I'd love them. I baked a bunch up so I could have a healthy snack whenever I wanted.

This morning, I took one of those baked sweet potatoes that I've been keeping in my fridge and blended it up with some frozen berries for a breakfast that everyone loved.

I chose frozen blueberries and a frozen berry blend to keep the color rich.

Vegan, Gluten-free, Food Allergy Friendly, Sugar-free

  • Baked and peeled sweet potato
  • Frozen blueberries
  • Frozen berry blend
  • Apple juice
  • Non-dairy milk

  1. Blend together equal parts sweet potato, blueberries and berry blend (mine was blueberries, blackberries and strawberries) with enough apple juice and non-dairy milk to achieve the consistency you prefer.
  2.  You can save extra smoothie in a lidded jar in the refrigerator for one day. Blend with a couple ice cubes to bring it back to smoothie goodness. You can also freeze extra smoothie in ice pop molds for a yummy frozen treat. 
Happy Cooking!
