Batch cooking sweet potatoes leads to some delicious recipes. That’s just what happened with this sweet potato nog smoothie!
I’ll often bake or pressure cook 5-6 sweet potatoes at a time.
They make awesome low maintenance snacks or additions to meals. Luck would have it they are delicious cold or reheated.
Nature provided a perfect ‘pocket’ of nourishment and flavor.
It was nearing a week and a half and I had one sweet potato left, so I decided to make a smoothie out of it.
I initially used a whole sweet potato, but Jeremy thought it was a bit too thick. Even though I liked it, I adjusted the recipe to be less milk-shakey and more smoothie—hence the sweet potato half.
Keep the skins in for extra fiber which helps slow down sugar absorption into the blood stream.
