A Green Sweet Potato Smoothie…you may think I’ve lost my mind, but this delicious fall green smoothie is the perfect way to get a healthy dose of fruits and vegetables into your diet. My Cranberry Smoothie Bowl is another seasonal favorite I love to make this time of year, but for today we are sticking to greens, sweet potatoes, mangos and all sorts of deliciousness!
This green sweet potato smoothie gets its vibrant green color from the fresh spinach in it. But don’t be fooled, it won’t taste like spinach.
No, the delicious flavors of sweet potato and mango blend harmoniously together for an incredibly delicious smoothie, it won’t even feel like you’re eating healthy.
And the dash of cinnamon will bring out the rich flavors of fall and this will soon be a top competitor to the pumpkin spice drink of choice. Seriously, it is that good!
Of course, you can! I like to cook my sweet potato first to bring out its rich flavors and to help ensure a smooth texture in your smoothie. Sweet potatoes are healthy, inexpensive and easily available. And it is crazy healthy for you.
Sweet potatoes are a root vegetable that are full of vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, B, C and selenium. They also are full of fiber and antioxidants which our bodies desperately need to function in tip-top shape!
Yes, you definitely can blend a sweet potato, and with a high-powered blender, you don’t even need to cook it. However, I prefer to cook my sweet potatoes first before adding them to a smoothie to ensure a very smooth smoothie.

There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies and milkshakes, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best. I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my smoothies and this is also perfect for some milkshake if you want everything blended together well!
