The breakfast of champions!!! Most people I know love sweet potatoes (yams), in fact I don't think I have met anyone that does not like these little gems. I am not a breakfast person at all. A few years ago if I did a long run, then I might have been hungry when I got back, but that doesn't happen anymore.
So one day my friend Amy, from Lubbers Landing, told me about this smoothie that she makes sometimes and I tried it and now have been drinking these almost every morning ever since!
Amy has tried it with pumpkin as well and that is also yummy! I started out making about 2 cups of this but now I drink 4 cups and that keeps me full until lunch time.
You will need a juicer and a blender for this recipe.
1 large sweet potato (yam)
2 apples ( i use red delicious)
1/2" - 1" piece of fresh ginger (depends on how much you like ginger)
1-2 frozen bananas
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
a large handful of fresh spinach (optional)
Juice the sweet potato, apples, ginger and carrots. This should make about 1 1/2 cups of juice. Add this juice to the blender with the frozen bananas, spinach and the pumpkin pie spice. Blend until smooth. ENJOY!!!
I suggest starting out drinking just 2 cups of this and work up to more. The recipe above should make about that. I add more sweet potato and more carrots to increase the size of mine.
I have been crazy busy getting ready for an art show in 2 weeks and finishing up the last of my orders.
I just finished this ring for a customer with a beautiful piece of amber sea glass.
In a few days I will start to post some pictures of items I am making for the art show. Nothing is completely finished yet, but I am working hard!
Have a great weekend :)
