Orange Cream Smoothie

An Orange Cream Smoothie that's good for you and taste good, too! Why is it healthy? According to Dr. Oz's A Healthy Kitchen:

    "The sweet potatoes do double duty by making the smoothie extra sweet and extra creamy! Thanks to their carotenoids, sweet potatoes stabilize blood sugar and lower insulin resistance (a condition that can lead to diabetes), restoring energy and helping women shed up to eight pounds a week! Plus, their beta-carotene and vitamin C help eliminate the free radicals that contribute to heart disease and colon cancer."

    The Recipe

    2 small bananas (preferably frozen — I cut my bananas into segments before I freeze them)
    1 fresh orange, peeled, seeded and juiced
    1 cup milk or soy milk, like Vitasoy
    1/4 cup cooked sweet potatoes, smashed with a fork
    1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt

    Blend everything in your blender. Blend according to your blenders directions and enjoy!

Two of the things I struggle with are extra weight and high blood pressure. I am off to the store to make sure I have these ingredients on hand for tomorrow morning. Why not try this with your favorite breakfast sandwich for a "smooth" and healthy start to your day. I am!
