In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I created a deliciously satisfying smoothie that is packed with energizing and beautifying nutrients to keep you on top of your holiday A-game and look good doing it. The Sweet Potato Smoothie is rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and beta-carotene which your body converts into Vitamin A. These antioxidants protect your skin from harmful free radical damage thereby helping to prevent wrinkles and keep the skin moist and youthful. Plus, eating foods rich beta-carotene makes your skin glow a soft golden hue (no tanning bed required!). This smoothie is also packed with plant-based protein for blood sugar stability and long-lasting energy and omega-3 fatty acids which will keep your bowels in check and inflammation at bay. Enjoy a cup as a mid-afternoon snack or as a post-Thanksgiving meal dessert. It literally tastes like ice cream minus the dairy and refined sugar.
