Creamy Sweet Potato Smoothie Recipe originally posted on Gluten Free School.
Sometimes a gal needs a change, right? Even though it’s pretty common to use fruit as the carb source in a smoothie, I started to mix things up last year. That’s how I accidentally created this creamy dairy free sweet potato smoothie recipe.
It’s so amazingly good and perfect for the cooler months when you feel like you need more warming foods. My hands and feet are notoriously freezing in the winter, so this made my mornings all the more delicious.
Truthfully, you might think that it’s weird to make a sweet potato smoothie, but I can tell you this…
Without any dairy or even banana, this smoothie is incredibly creamy and filling. Frankly, it’s like a whipped dessert.
Plus it’s safe for someone who is a gluten free sugar addict in need of some better recipe ideas to tame that sweet tooth!
So why not start your day off with something like this.
Why Sweet Potato?
Well, why not sweet potato?
You’re likely used to drinking all sorts of fruit in your smoothies, but no one said that you have to stick to fruit. In fact, there are plenty of really delicious foods that can take a boring morning smoothie to something totally crave-worthy.
The thing is, you’ve got to give new foods a chance. No one told me to try sweet potatoes. I just thought “why not?” If it had tasted horrible, I would have chucked it in the trash (after trying to drink as much as I could since I don’t like to waste). But that wasn’t the case.

What would replace the Vanilla powder? How about Vanilla extract and Chia seeds? Or….?
You might try Upgraded Collagen powder…
This looks delicious. I am going to try this! Thanks, Jill! I may try to sub Butternut squash for the sweet potato since I have one on the counter… 😘
