Let’s explore the wonders of the sweet potato.
The sweet potato offers loads of antioxidants, high doses of vitamin A, vitamin C, magnese, B vitamins, potassium and iron. This tasty superfood helps prevent heart disease and cancer, helps maintain blood pressure, controls muscle and nerve function, bolsters the immune system and even slows aging by promoting good vision, strong bones, and healthy skin. All of which reinforce why we should make sweet potatoes part of our daily diet.
I for one, am impatient when it comes to the cooking time that comes along with sweet potatoes, that I will often stray away from using this sweet veg on a regular basis…until now! Why not add them into a smoothie- Genius, right? I am definitely going to experiment more with this one, but for now will leave you with this combination.
The Dessert Smoothie, is for when you are looking for something sweet, something quick to hit the craving, while still providing loads of nutrients. It is a combination that is sweet, nutty and delectably delicious.
