Ingredients:1 cup steamed then frozen sweet potato *
To prepare vegetables for smoothies, steaming them prior to freezing can help with the digestion of the vegetables by breaking down starches, and make your smoothie creamier. To do this, steam desired vegetable for 5-8 minutes, checking occasionally by poking with a fork. Once a fork can easily poke through, they’re done. Lay separated on a baking sheet and freeze until they’ve frozen. Then transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer.
