I knew this was going to be a tasty smoothie, but I didn’t know it was gonna be THIS tasty.
All of the hearty yet sweet flavors in this sweet potato carrot smoothie make this breakfast one of a kind. If you’re new to vegetable-based smoothies, then this is a great place to start. Carrots and sweet potatoes have some natural sweetness and the date gives it an extra something (but if you’re a veggie smoothie pro, get rid of that date!)
I made the this smoothie just a tad smaller than I normally do so that I could swirl some creamy plain yogurt in there. I love this addition because it gives the smoothie a nice texture and additional thickness! You can use greek yogurt or nut-based yogurt if you wish.
