Just for Kids

You Are My Sweet Potato~Sunshine Smoothie


    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 3/4 cups pasteurized orange juice (not from concentrate)

    1 3/4 cups vanilla frozen yogurt

    Can light whipped cream

    Rainbow sprinkles

    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.



      1. I make smoothies for the kids in the mornings before school. Its been fun, so far we haven’t made a gross combination. I have not tried sweet potatoes but I love them so I will have to try this recipe.

        1. Thanks Kerri, I usually don’t tell the girls it has sweet potatoes, they just think it’s Orange Cream flavor. 😀
