Velvety and sweet, this smoothie has some seriously irresistible low-sugar tricks up its sleeve. If you’re looking to reduce the sugar content even further, use 1 tablespoon dried white mulberries in place of the date.
1/3 cup sweet potato puree (either freshly cooked or canned)
1 large Medjool date, pitted
2 tablespoons raw cashews
1 tablespoon dried goji berries
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon your favorite vanilla-flavored protein powder
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Scant 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
¾ cup DRINKmaple (pure maple water)
1 cup ice, or more if desired
In blender, combine the sweet potato puree, date, cashews, goji berries, chia seeds, goji berries, protein powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and maple water. Blend until smooth. Add ice — 1 cup up to 2 cups, depending on how frosty you like your smoothie — and blend once more until frosty.
