Fruity Sweet Potato Smoothie and Giveaway

I’m a latecomer to the whole smoothie craze. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan. But when it comes down to a $5 smoothie or a $5 beer, I always choose the latter. Well it’s time for a change; I’ve had way too much fun this summer, with a glut of eating, drinking, and beach lounging. Instead of the customary summer trim down, I managed to pack on a few pounds. 

So for the last few weeks, I’ve cut back on my ramen/drunken noodle consumption and have been replacing the occasional meal with a smoothie. I’ve had fun experimenting with flavors -throwing into the blender everything from papaya and pear to avocado and cayenne. But the concoction I’m digging most is my sweet potato smoothie. I know it sounds a little weird, but trust me it’s delicious! I add a little mango, half a banana, and a splash of OJ, which makes it fruity and refreshing.

You can find the recipe over on the Hamilton Beach blog.
