Across the country, children are back to school shopping or stepping off the bus for their first day, football and pumpkin spice lattes are around the corner, and autumn fruits are perfect for cooler evenings. I recently purchased my Vitamix and was thrilled to find that they provide numerous recipes with purchase of one of their blenders. The Autumn Sweet Potato Smoothie from this recipe book has become a fast fall favorite.
Autumn Sweet Potato Smoothie
1 cup red grapes
1/2 medium orange, peeled
1/2 sweet potato, cooked with skins & cooled
1/2 medium apple, halved
1/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 tsp fresh ginger
2 cups ice cubes
To suit my family’s tastes, I added cinnamon to the mix. It was delicious and incredibly easy. Just add each of the ingredients into the Vitamix in the order given, set the program to smoothies and press start. It takes approximately 45 seconds for the Vitamix to run through the program and you have a meal in a glass!
