Sweet Potato Casserole #greensmoothie

Ever since I received my Ninja Ultima, I’ve been having fun making up my own green smoothie recipes. A couple have been real flops. Some have been grand slams. Like the sweet potato casserole green smoothie I made last week.

  1. I have never thought about adding sweet potatoes to a smoothie, but I must admit this sounds delicious! My favorite is on my blog (my high fiber green smoothie) and it’s with avocado, green grapes, spinach, kiwi and a few other yummy foods!

    • I’m going to have to try it, Nichol. I haven’t used green grapes in a smoothie yet. I’ve used purple, though.

      • Now that I think about it, I don’t think there are grapes in that one, but definitely could be thrown in:)

        • Ha! I went to look at the recipe, and was like, “Wait, where are the grapes?” The kiwi and avocado combo sound awesome, though!

  2. This is the most unique smoothie recipe I have seen. Awesome!!

  3. I had never thought of sweet potatoes. I’m more a sweet smoothie girl.

  10. I had never thought of adding sweet potato to a smoothie. I am really interested to see what the texture would be like.

  13. I would have never thought of this. I’ve been trying to branch out with my smoothie recipes though, so I’m going to incorporate some of your ideas.

  14. I would never have thought of this combo but I can definitely imagine how many of those flavors would work well together! I’ll have to try this, thanks for the recipe!

  15. I almost feel guilty for eating as badly as I do looking at your dinners

    I’ve never gotten too much into the green smoothie craze, mostly because I eat a lot of salads and cooked veggies as it is, so I haven’t felt the need to imbibe liquid veggies. But at one time, I found that throwing in a couple of handfuls of kale along with the juice of a couple of oranges was tolerable. The blended-up pieces of kale were sort of reminiscent of orange juice pulp, so my mouth and mind were able to tolerate them.

    I have to admit that my only blender is an ancient Oster. It’s probably from the 60’s or something. If I had a modern blender that actually completely liquefied vegetables instead of leaving chunks and stringy pieces, then I might be more enthusiastic about blended veggies. 🙂
