Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie #SundaySupper

Hello, hello!

Happy Sunday to you!  Today for #SundaySupper our mission is to make something for Fat Tuesday!  Oh how I love New Orleans kind of foods, but to my surprise my Husband doesn’t like anything Cajun.  It’s horrible!  I originally thought I would make gumbo soup, but instead I made myself a treat!  Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie!  Oh yah, that is what I am talking about!
Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Sweet Potatoes and what better way to enjoy them then in a smoothie? This smoothie is sweet, has the most wonderful cinnamon flavor and tastes just like pie. You can’t get any better than that! Ohhhh, drinking pie baby, now that’s what I’m talking about.
Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie
To make the smoothie, you can use leftover sweet mashed potatoes or you can do what I did, cook the potato in the microwave, and then let it cool, peel the skin and pop in the blender. To give it the pie flavor, I used nutmeg, cinnamon and to sweetened it up maple syrup. All good stuff. I also used greek yogurt and non-fat milk to make it. I tried unsweetened vanilla almond milk and I felt the almond milk was a little strong in flavor. So I re-made it with non-fat milk. Coconut milk would work great too!! To make it vegan, use coconut yogurt!!

Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie
Hmmmm, I wonder what this would taste like with a splash of bourbon?  Bourbon and maple syrup make a wonderful combo.  Ok, now I am just dreaming here.  Anyway, I am looking so forward to seeing what everyone created! I need to come visit my #SundaySupper family so I can have some good old Fat Tuesday food! Darn that Husband of mine!

  16. Okay I have never heard of someone using sweet potato in a drink, this sounds so interesting. This year I have really gotten into smoothie making so this is going to have to be a must try. By the way I too would be so sad if my husband didn’t like Cajun food, maybe one of the recipes shared today will be the thing that helps you sway him. :)

  28. You had me with your first picture, then when I read the ingredients I got all excited since I just bought sweet potatoes………but no cool whip! AHHH!!! Maybe I’ll have to go without! Thanks for sharing Jennifer!

  29. Girl, I LOVE sweet potatoes and I LOVE that you made sweet potato pie into a drink! This is brilliant! And it’s healthy. Even if it were full fat that wouldn’t have stopped me from gulping it down in the first place but that fact that this is pretty good for me is definitely a bonus. The bourbon will be for my mental health ;)
