Sweet Potato Ginger Smoothie

This is for my neighbor Pattie who is always graciously facebooking me healthy recipes. This recipe below was inspired by a juicer recipe she sent me. For lack of juicer, I make smoothies. Plus it's extra fiber which I appreciate and is good for the wee ones.
This drink has a nice dose of beta carotene and Vitamin C. A quick zing of ginger, a powerful healing spice.

You can easily substitute or add cinnamon for the ginger. Its great idea to add herbs or spices to your smoothies because they are nutritional powerhouses. Also try my Golden Smoothie (uses turmeric), Immunity Strengthening Smoothie, Chamomile Cantaloupe Smoothie, and Blueberry Basil Smoothie.

Sweet Potato Ginger Smoothie
1 steamed sweet potato, cooled
1 large carrot
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup chopped pineapple, frozen (or add ice if fresh)
1" chunk fresh ginger
2-3 dates or 4-6 drops vanilla stevia (I buy NuNaturals on amazon or I make my own with this recipe)
1. Blend ingredients in a high speed blender.
2. Enjoy!
Serves 2-3

There are really two season during the year. Blender soup season and smoothie season. Vitamix hot or Vitamix cold. It's smoothie season again! YAY!

What is your favorite smoothie combination?
