Sweet Potato Green Oatmeal Smoothie

When I made homemade oat milk the other week, I mentioned that it works well in smoothies. I didn’t want to leave you hanging, so I made this smoothie to prove it.

I had half a sweet potato left over from my Sweet Potato, Almond Butter, & Raisin Oatmeal, so I used that as the star of my smoothie. With banana, some spices, and a handful of greens, this smoothie is like a nutritious sweet potato pie. Then I added my secret ingredient: raw oats!

Sweet Potato Oat Green Smoothie

I love how oats cut the sweetness of a smoothie. I actually stopped eating smoothies because I hated how sweet they were, but with oats, I find the experience much more enjoyable. You could add quick oats, rolled oats, or even the pulp of oats leftover from making oat milk.

And of course, the greens can be left out if you’re not ready for that kind of commitment. 😉
