With this blood-pressure balancing Orange Cream Smoothie! This is one of my favorite breakfast smoothies. The sweet potatoes do double duty by making the smoothie extra sweet and extra creamy! Thanks to their carotenoids, sweet potatoes stabilize blood sugar and lower insulin resistance (a condition that can lead to diabetes), restoring energy and helping women shed up to eight pounds a week! Plus, their beta-carotene and vitamin C help eliminate the free radicals that contribute to heart disease and colon cancer.
- 2 small bananas (preferably frozen — I cut my bananas into segments before I freeze them)
- 1 fresh orange, peeled, seeded and juiced
- 1 cup milk or soy milk, like Vitasoy
- 1/4 cup cooked sweet potatoes, smashed with a fork
- 1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
Put everything in your blender (I recommend Vita-mix) and blend til smooth. Yummo and so good for you! Truly my favorite — you must give this a try and then please, please, please, leave a comment so the whole world will know just how great this is! Graci!
Here’s why I recommend Vita-Mix …
Vita-Mix & Phytonutrients
If you know me at all, you know there is one kitchen appliance I am passionate about — my Vita-mix blender! Yes, it’s at the top of my “Couldn’t Live Without” list — and yes, you’re going to see a plug for it on every smoothie recipe I write because using a Vita-mix blender gives your smoothies much more nutritional value than any ordinary blender possibly can! And because I care about YOUR health!
Here’s the “skinny” — Vita-Mix processing breaks open the cell walls to release maximum nutrition from whole foods, more than you can get any other way.
Vita-mix gives you verything you’d want from a blender and more! No question about it — the Vita-Mix blender is superior to anything else on the market and well worth the investment!
