Healthy Sweet Potato Pie Shake

Pin It
Alisa Fleming ~ Before baking, sweet potato pie filling is rich, creamy, and thick but pourable, like a shake. So why not enjoy a chilled version in a glass? I had some leftover steamed sweet potatoes from a prior recipe and thought it might be a good idea to enjoy some of this beta-carotene packed veggie in my breakfast shake.

Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie - Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan

If enjoying this in the morning, when my taste buds are more sensitive, I go very light on the sweetener (using about 1 teaspoon plus stevia to taste). But for an afternoon pick-me-up, you may want to up the sweetener to a tablespoon or even a little more for a more indulgent treat. In my opinion, smoothies are all about customization, so please do feel free to alter the flavors of this sweet potato pie shake to suit your palate.

Also, I find smoothies to be a great medium for adding extra nutrition. Here are some additional ingredients that you might want to pop into this smoothie that should still leave you with a seemless, creamy pie shake:

  • Aminos (1 teaspoon L-glutamine added to the one pictured – doesn’t affect flavor or texture!)
  • Probiotics (added to the one pictured – I use 1/4 teaspoon of Ther-Biotic Complete)
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons of Vegan Protein Powder (rice, hemp, soy, etc.)
  • A Half Ounce of Whole or Ground Nuts (I like to add a couple of brazil nuts sometimes)
  • A Handful of Raw Spinach (will alter the look, but not the taste)
  • A Wee Bit (maybe 1/4 teaspoon or less) Maca Powder or Lucuma Powder

Rating: 5

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 big shake

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (i use leftover steamed sweet potatoes)
  • 1 medium to large (depending on how thick you like it) ripe frozen banana, broken into chunks
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup unsweetened milk alternative (i use coconut milk beverage)
  • 1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 25mg scoop pure stevia extract, optional
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon maple syrup, or more to taste (coconut sugar or brown sugar also taste yummy in this)

  • Dash nutmeg, for garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Place the sweet potato, banana, 1/2 cup of the milk alternative, flaxseed, vanilla, stevia (if using), cinnamon (start with 1/4 teaspoon), salt, and 1/2 tablespoon of the maple syrup in your blender and whiz until smooth.
  2. If it is too thick, add more milk alternative as needed and blend.
  3. Give it a taste test. If you are like me, and adore cinnamon, go ahead and add more. If not sweet enough, blend in more maple syrup to taste.
  4. Garnish with whipped coconut cream and a dash of nutmeg, if desired.
