Do you know how good a smoothie tastes with a pureed sweet potato?
Well, if you have never had a sweet potato in a smoothie, you don’t know what you’re missing. Besides tasting good, they provide an array of health benefits like providing you with up to 6 grams of fiber, keeping you fuller longer and your blood sugar level.
They also are the only food with the highest amount of beta-carotene (which is where the orange color comes from). Beta-carotene converts to vitamin A which is good for your skin.
I also added mango…my second favorite fruit, next to bananas.
Mangos are good for:
- healthy digestion
- healthy gut
- eye health
- protection against the cold and flu
- providing anticancer benefits
It makes enough for two. My intention was to eat it for lunch, which I did, then eat the remainder the next morning for breakfast, parfait style. Only the next morning turned into dinner the same day.
Oh well……that’s how life goes!
Feel free to eat this for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – smoothie bowls are for any time of the day!
