All of my kids are big fruit eaters and one of their favorite ways to eat fruit is in smoothies. One of their favorite smoothies is this raspberry sweet potato protein smoothie. We refer to this smoothie as our sunrise smoothie. I usually make it for breakfast and the layers of raspberries, sweet potato, and orange juice look like a sunrise while blending.
I love that when they drink a smoothie they are not only getting an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals but they are also getting a nice big dose of protein and healthy probiotics.
Raspberry Sweet Potato Protein Smoothie
Like all kids, they go through eating times when they refuse to eat various foods. Much to James’ disappointment, what they refuse to eat it is usually the meat or the protein source of that meal. If I notice that they have not eaten much protein in the last few meals I will make them a protein packed smoothie.
After struggling with picky eaters who refuse to eat protein and veggies, I came up with a healthy and tasty way to get that much needed protein and veggies in their diets. This Raspberry Sweet Potato Protein Smoothie is a sure-fire, healthy way to feed those peaky eaters.
One of the girls’ favorite smoothies is this raspberry sweet potato protein smoothie. During the summer I use fresh raspberries but in the winter or whenever I can’t find the fresh fruit I use frozen raspberries. And bonus! By using steamed sweet potatoes I’m also able to sneak in some veggies too!
- 1/2 cup raspberries
- 1/2 cup steamed sweet potatoes
- 1 scoop unsweetened, vanilla protein powder
- 6 oz orange juice
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
- Add in raspberries and sweet potatoes in blender.
- Add protein powder and vanilla yogurt.
- Top with orange juice.
- Put lid on blender and blend until smooth. If needed, scrap down the sides and blend again.
- Pour into glass and enjoy.
Makes about 1.5 adult serving. Or 3 kid servings.
- To make this dairy free or vegan friendly substitute the yogurt for coconut or almond yogurt and the protein powder for dairy free/vegan protein powder like pea protein.
Do your kids drink smoothies? What is their favorite flavor?
Have a great day!
