Banana Yam Smoothie

Banana Yam Smoothie

I’ve been on green smoothies for about six months now, and as much as I love them, I was really craving something different this morning.  So different is what I made.

I had some leftover baked yam from my Thanksgiving dinner, so I thought I would experiment 🙂

Now for those of you who are thinking that this is just too weird of a combo for you, you just have to try it to believe how delicious this is! I was sitting at my desk working away this morning, and I kept thinking that some lovely person had brought cinnamon buns to work today, because something smelled just divine.  Only to realize later that this smell was coming from my Banana Yam Smoothie!

I will definitely be making this again!

  • 1/2 cup of mashed yam
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1/2 tsp of nutmeg
  • 2 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp of dried coconut flakes

Add all ingredients into your blender and blend away.  You can add a little more water if it’s too thick.
