When my little girls get home from school, their favorite afternoon snack is a smoothie. It's a healthy treat that holds them over until dinner time.
I purchased a high powered blender last year and have been amazed at the delicious AND healthy blends I've been able to create. My favorite is sweet potato and orange. If you don't have a juicer-blender, you can use a juice extractor, or fine grate your sweet potato before using your regular blender. I'm guessing you could even use a food processor! This is a simple raw recipe that is sure to bring a smile to your little sunshine's face.
You Are My Sweet Potato~Sunshine Smoothie
1 raw sweet potato, peeled and diced
1 ¾ cups pasteurized orange juice (not from concentrate)
1 ¾ cups vanilla frozen yogurt
Can light whipped cream
Maraschino Cherries, patted dry
Blend sweet potato and orange juice until smooth. Add yogurt. Pour into cups and top with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry. Makes about 4 kid sized smoothies. *note: If using extracted juice, increase to 2 sweet potatoes.
