Pretty Picture…looks Nyum !!
Thanks! This smoothie ROCKS!
Had this today! Was AMAZING. Haven’t had a pie like dessert since I became a vegan 🙂
SO glad you loved this smoothie. Thanks!
Give the pecan pie and apple pie smoothies a go.
They are SCRUMPTIOUS too. Yummo!
Made a batch of this today.. I hardly got Any ! The kids Loved it and gobbled it down. Might make another batch after they go to bed. Wondering – would a bit of Rum be a good addition ?
Hey Dr Steve! LOL! I love that story.
Oh….rum…go for it!
Thick smoothies made with pumpkins and sweet potatoes are awesome garnished with glass straws from http://glassdharma.com – 12mm diameter is best and length to fit your glassware.
I LOVE glass straws.
Thanks for sharing 🙂
I;m gonna make it thicker and use it as a pudding.
Thanks for sharing your idea.
This would make a delicious pudding!
Let me know how you go 🙂
Such a comforting smoothie on a rainy fall day after coming in from walking Oscar. Think I’ll add a bit more cinnamon next time. 😉
So happy you gave this a go Marie-Guy.
You are AMAZING!
The idea of sweet potato in a smoothie total freaked me out at first but then I tried this and it is TO DIE FOR!!!!!!!! Was so surprised! Best autumn treat ever – YUM!
Glad you gave it a try!
I LOVE this smoothie and glad you did too 🙂
Yum, yum, yum!
Thanks! I agree! YUMMMMO!
I was a sceptic about this one, but after reading your blog and comments, I dared try it and of course, it was a real delight ! Thanks Blender Girl. Yum 🙂
Thanks for giving it a go! xx
Thanks Katy, K, Claudia, Caitlin and Marie.
I really LOVE this smoothie and I am glad you do too. Oink Oink 🙂
Delicious Healthier Twist on Sweet Potato Smoothie: I can’t have sugar or sweet fruits, so my smoothie included a Garnet Yam, 1/2 large ripe Haas Avocado instead of the Banana, and about 25 drops English Toffee Stevia instead of the Maple Syrup. YUMMY!
Now if I could only convince my husband that it is actually a Pumpkin Blizzard from DQ! Oink!
I LOVE your blend. I just tried it and it is DEELISH
Thanks for sharing it with everyone.
Let’s keep working on converting hubby 🙂
I made this smoothie last night and OMG…delicious!!! I can’t wait to make it again! It was seriously a dessert in a cup! I’m in the process of losing weight (20 lbs gone so far!) and this was a great, healthy (only 308 calories) dinner and dessert in one! Loved it!! I can’t wait to make it again!
So glad you enjoyed this Carren.
That is an AMAZING weight-loss achievement. SO happy for you and so lovely to have you here.
This smoothie was so scrumptious! I saved the extra in the freezer and had another yummy treat the next day. This recipe is going on my vita-mix playlist!! Thanks for the great recipes!
An absolute pleasure!
LOVE freezing it for a quick snack later.
I would LOVE to know what else is on your Vitamix Playlist! YUM!!!!
Oh my. Looks so good! Now I want to try sweet potato in a smoothie!
Can’t wait to hear what you think Charissa 🙂
I just tried this ( made without banana because I didn’t have one and used coconiut milk). Still, yummy! Thank you for the recipe!
Wonderful! Thanks for taking the time to share you blend. Sounds DELICIOUS!
LOL! Love it! Glad you gave it a go and it was a hit!
Ohmygosh!!! This was AMAZING! I’ve never tasted anything like this before. I used Stevia instead of the maple syrup because my grandma has diabetes. Now I make a big batch for her every few days and I’ll freeze it and make it like an ice cream! She’s so happy now that she can get a healthy fix!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! 😀
Oh, thankyou Manddaa for taking the time to share your experience. I am SO pleased you are enjoying this shake.
Isn’t stevia AMAZING?!
Hey sweet girl, I made an orange sweet potato smoothie this week and linked to this one. Yours sounds so decadently delicious that I wanted to share it with my readers too!
Thanks for sharing Heather!
I know what I am making this weekend!!!
This was delicious!! It was funny cuz I had just baked up a sweet potato when I remembered this recipe. I had just enough to make it. Woohoo!!
All I did different is add a little raw honey (to sweeten it extra) and extra cinnamon. Oh, and a little extra pumpkin pie spice (I like suuuuper flavorful smoothies)
Hey, I bet this would make a fantastic raw sweet
Glad you enjoyed this.
Yes! You can thicken this with chia seeds and it makes a fantastic pudding.
Love your little tweaks too. YUM 🙂
I was wondering if anyone has used this sweet potato smoothie as a post workout drink?
Dina, I do have some readers who have emailed and said they have added in some vegan protein powder like VEGA or SPROUT LIVING and used this after workouts. Perhaps reduce the sugar content and use stevia instead?
If it is in a can, is the sweet potato already cooked?
I don’t used sweet potato in a can, I steam sweet potato to cook it, and then mash it fresh. In any case, yes, the sweet potato is cooked. I find raw cooked potato is too starchy in a smoothie, and doesn’t give you the same depth of flavor in this smoothie. I hope this helps.
Thank you, it does help! I appreciate it!
