More About This Recipe
Smoothies are fabulo fantastic for summertime. Cool and berryish, these chilly sippers are refreshing as all get out during the hot months. They’re great way to get your greens and fruits in.

But smoothies in the autumn? Not so much. As the season turns and the temps turn cooler, comfort food takes the front seat. And it’s easy to find yourself living on golden pot pies and renaissance fair-sized turkey legs. Or whatever. You see where I’m going with this. Fall eats are all about hearty, hot foodstuff things.

Still, your body begs daily for the good stuff. So why not give that classic jar o’ fresh-blended smoothie an autumnal twist, inspired by the utterly irresistible sweet potato casserole of Thanksgiving fame.

Don’t be freaked. No matter how wild this sounds, this smoothie is about to become the best autumnal breakfast you’ve ever blended. I made one batch (two servings) and ended up drinking them both by myself.  I kid you not. This smoothie is sweet potato perfection!

Let’s make another one! Here’s your ingredient line-up. You’ll need two sweet potatoes, orange juice, a pack of frozen peaches (which didn’t quite make it into the photo), some Cascadian Farms™ dark chocolate granola, and two cartons of  Yoplait™ Plenti™ yogurt.

In this smoothie, it’s absolutely absolute. Crazy epic combo flavor here, humans.

Let’s get this thing did. Micro the sweet potatoes until tender. Then, peel and dice. Toss it all in the blender with some orange juice and frozen peaches and maple syrup and autumnal spice. You’ll end up with this gloriously smooth smoothie!

Fill a pretty glass halfway full with said smoothie, then top with yogurt. Then, more smoothie. Then more yogurt.

As if this right here isn’t enough of the good stuff, we’re about ready to streusel top it all with granola. The Cascadian Farms™ dark chocolate granola on top of this sweet-potato-custard-and-seed-spiked-yogurt is ‘bout to blow your mind.

Watch me whip.

That yogurt. That granola crunch factor. This smoothie.

It may the single best part of autumn eating ever.
