It is day three post-Turkey Day, and I bet you have some sweet potatoes around that you don't know what to do with. Lucky you are reading this! I used some leftover steamed sweet potato to make this protein shake. Not only will this have you feeling energized post-workout, but you will also think you traveled back in time to Thursday celebrating Thanksgiving.
This week in the Bay Area has been a scorcher. Currently, a high of 92 degrees as I write this right now. When the weather starts to get warm, I immediately crave post-workout smoothies. There is a method to my madness when it comes to making a Macrobalanced protein smoothie which I will explain below.
I continue to search for ways to make smoothies delicious, but lower sugar. This recipe I decided to use something I have never used before, but heard it is amazing. I use STEAMED cauliflower along with steamed beets. Beets add some sweetness to the smoothie and cauliflower adds creaminess. The only thing I caution is try not to stain everything pink!
