Sweet Potato Smoothie

Fall seems to be about pumpkin this and pumpkin that and although I love pumpkin and squash in general, sweet potato holds a special place in my foodie heart.

If you haven’t read my breakfast stuffed sweet potato recipe, you should. This is what resulted from the leftover sweet potato and the need for a snack before lunch. I don’t experiment too much in the kitchen because it usually ends up burned or bland…

the sorry truth is revealed

This turned out wonderfully, to the point where I wonder why it took me so long to try it. If you’re a pumpkin spice fanatic, don’t worry I’ve got you covered.
