“Pumpkin” Smoothie

I really am trying to get more recipes posted here…really, I am!  However, sometimes this little bundle of sweetness just takes over my time! I can’t believe that she is almost 3 weeks old already!

The other day I did a little searching through my freezer to see what was there that should be used up soon.  I came across a small container of cooked sweet potatoes.  Knowing that sweet potatoes can be used in similar fashion to pumpkins, I decided to make a smoothie.  It was delicious!! If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I just love anything pumpkin or apple or cinnamon during the fall.  Fall just came yesterday and with it came fall-like temperatures, so this smoothie was perfect for me!   I just played around with the amounts, so what I put here are estimates.

1 c. almond milk

3/4 c. mashed sweet potatoes (mine were still partially frozen)

1 heaping tsp. of pumpkin pie spice (I used this.)

1/2 tsp. of sweetener (I used pure cane sugar)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well. Add a little extra almond milk if it is too thick for you.  Enjoy!
