Do try this at home: Autumnal Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

My taste palate is inextricably tied to Southern US, specifically Louisiana culinary traditions.  Around this time of year, I always get nostalgic for sweet potato pie.   Being somewhat a sweet-potato pie snob, I rarely pick up a pie from the grocery.  Sadly, I haven’t even perfected my own baked pie–I just haven’t gotten my aunt’s recipe right!  However, I have adopted my favorite sweet potato pie flavors to my favorite food group:  smoothie! 

If you’re longing for the signature taste of fall without the baking fall-out, try this at home:

Cook your sweet potato beforehand.  Chill (or at least room temperature).

Cut up the potato for the blender

Add a 1/4 cup OJ

Add 1/2 – 1 cup milk alternative (rice, soy, almond, etc.), could use milk if you like, or yogurt

2-3 Tblsp of agave

Few dashes of cinnamon.  Dash of nutmeg

Blend and Add liquid until reach desired textured.

Drink up!
