If the thought of a sweet potato smoothie sounds a bit strange, have no fear, this smoothie tastes just like a sweet pie.
Before you run away at the thought of putting a potato in a smoothie, let me tell you that sweet potato in a smoothie is so nice and very similar to pumpkin or butternut squash.
This sweet potato smoothie tastes like a sweet banana pie and is absolutely gorgeous.
Raw Sweet Potato Smoothie
It’s perfectly possible to eat sweet potato raw and many raw foodists enjoy sweet potato as a great form of filling carbs when they want something slightly more savory than fruit.
The first time I tried raw sweet potato was at a raw food potluck, and the sweet potato had been marinated in a gorgeous sauce with some other vegetables. It was one of the nicest stews I’d ever tried.

So I knew it was perfectly possible to eat sweet potato raw, the test was whether it was going to blend up well in a smoothie.
In my [amazon_textlink asin=’B01FASW6OY’ text=’high speed blender’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’greethic-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’29d4d3e5-1b67-4303-970e-4bbbfd644a80′] it blended up extremely well, but I’ve not tried it with a normal blender.
So to be on the safe side, you might want to use cooked sweet potato in this smoothie if you’re not sure whether your blender can handle it.
Whether you decide to use raw or cooked sweet potatoes, this vegetable has many benefits for us. Watch the video below explaining how sweet potatoes can benefit your health.

How To Cook A Sweet Potato
You can cook a sweet potato in the same way you would cook normal potatoes.
- You can bake them in the oven (remove the skin before adding it to the smoothie) at 400 degrees for 40-60 minutes.
- You can also boil, steam or cook them in the microwave until soft. Wait until it cools down before adding it to the smoothie.
Sweet Potato and Banana Pie Smoothie
We all really loved this smoothie.
My husband always gives his feedback on my smoothies when he gets home from work. He told me he particularly liked this smoothie and was shocked when I said him it contained sweet potato.
It tastes like a lovely sweet pie to me.
The good thing about this smoothie is it’s completely raw (if you use raw sweet potato), gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan and free from oats for those people who can’t tolerate oats.
It’s also a very filling meal replacement smoothie (a Thickie) and you have the option to turn it into a green thickie by adding spinach, which I highly recommend.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
