I recently saw Tracy Anderson on the Dr. Oz show and she was talking about this delicious-sounding smoothie recipe that Gwyneth Paltrow helped her to create. With a couple of small tweaks and no microwave involved, I’m happy to say that this smoothie turned out to be the most decadent yet healthy smoothie I have tasted to date.
Ingredients (makes 2 servings):
- 2 peeled sweet potatoes boiled or baked
- 2 cups organic whole milk or unsweetened almond milk
- 1 packet/scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Garden of Life’s Vanilla Chai Protein Powder. I’m not a big proponent of protein powders in general, but this one is a raw, vegan, organic protein made from over a dozen sprouted seeds and grains – so it’s actually real food and very high quality)
- handful of walnuts
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp turmeric
It turned out like a pudding! I really liked it that way, but if you don’t want it as thick, simply add more milk. This smoothie is loaded with vitamin A, protein, and healthy fat. It also has the added bonuses of being anti-inflammatory (turmeric) and blood sugar stabilizing (cinnamon). I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!
