Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

Susan Bickta


I was challenged to make a smoothie using canned yams, so I created this tasty smoothie. The yams add a wonderful texture and creaminess and the spices create the Fall flavor of just baked sweet potato pie! This smoothie is, truly, just like drinking a piece of sweet potato pie!! If you want a smoothie with fewer calories, omit the yam syrup and pear syrup and use equivalent amount of coconut milk instead.
