Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 tsp high-quality matcha (I love Sun Potion matcha)
  • ½ banana, frozen
  • ½ cup frozen cauliflower
  • ½ cup steamed and frozen white sweet potato* (I like Japanese sweet potatoes)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ⅓ cup coconut water
  • ¼ cup cashew milk (or sub other plant-based milk)
toppings (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in blender**. Blend on high until smooth and creamy, scraping the edges halfway through to ensure evenness.
  2. Scrape into a bowl using a rubber spatula, sprinkle with toppings if desired and serve immediately.
Notes
*Either chop and roast your sweet potato in the oven or prick with a fork a few times, wrap in a paper towel, and microwave for 4-6 minutes, flipping over half way through. Once soft, roughly dice, spread out on tray and freeze until ready to use.


**If you plan on making smoothies frequently, I definitely suggest investing in a good blender. (I went through 3 cheep blenders over the course of one semester in college. no joke). I love my Vitamix - probably one of the best Christmas gifts I’ve ever received. It literally holds up anything. You can buy them certified refurbished which helps cut the cost and still gives you a great product.


***I love storing my sliced frozen banana, cauliflower, and sweet potato chunks in these amazing reusable silicone storage bags from Yuggen. As we have slowly transitioned into a mostly plastic-free home, finding eco-friendly products to store our food in has been crucial. This company is doing great things and I am proud to support them.
