Shake It Up Saturday!!
As we enter Thanksgiving week, I’m sooo excited! I love Thanksgiving! It is one of my favorite Holidays! A day where we spend the day with family and friends and dwell on the things we do have and the many blessings we have in our lives!! I know I have much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving! One of my Thanksgiving favorites is Sweet Potato Pie or Candied Yams — pretty much anything along these lines are among my favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. I even made up a healthified version of my Ruth Chris Inspired Sweet Potato Bake recipe. So using that as my inspiration I concocted a Sweet Potato Pie Protein Shake as my way of showing gratitude for one of my favorite holidays!! Enjoy!
Sweet Potato Pie Protein Shake
- 1/2 C Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1/2 C Soy Egg Nog
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
- 1/4 C Cooked Sweet Potato — I baked mine in the oven and just cut off a chunk and threw it in the blender
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 2 tsp stevia
- 8-10 Ice cubes as needed for desired consistency
Throw ingredients into blender and blend until smooth consistency 30-60 seconds
