Sweet Success Sweet Potato Smoothie

I have been drinking smoothies since my mom made me strawberry banana smoothies growing up.  Today smoothies are kind of trendy, and definitely more creative then the basic strawberry banana combo.  I love the simplicity of drinking a smoothie for breakfast, or as a meal replacer later in the day.  Smoothies can be simple or packed with a variety of fruits and veggies.  Whether you get a simple smoothie or a complicated one they are a great way to get your nutrition for the day.

I’ve noticed depending on what my body needs it craves different fruits and vegetables.  For the last year I’ve eat a ton of sweet potatoes.  It’s like I can never get enough.  I eat fry them up for breakfast in the morning and then I might have a sweet potato smoothie later in the day for a snack.  I even created a sports drink with sweet potato juice. 

Then I thought about it the other day, and wondered what is in the sweet potato that makes me crave it every day.  Apparently it has a ton of vitamins including vitamin A, C, and B6.  It also has Manganese which is a trace mineral that helps you absorb other minerals like Calcium.

Sweet potatoes are a great source of energy and can reduce inflammation. Take a look at this article on the benefits of sweet potatoes.
