Happy 2nd week of 2017, food fam! Hopefully this year is treating you right, so far! Personally, I can’t complain and I think we can all agree that this sweet potato sunshine smoothie is beautiful and we all want to slurp it down.

Sweet Potato Sunshine Smoothie- a simple wintery mix, packed with creaminess, vibrance, nutrients and a whole lot of yum!

Not only is the smoothie easy on the eyes, it’s also freaking delicious, so easy and only requires 5 ingredients – all things you probably already have in your kitchen.

Simply add refreshing Trop50 juice beverage, your favorite non-dairy milk – I like unsweetened vanilla almond milk, roasted sweet potato, frozen banana and some cinnamon to your blender. You can also throw in some protein powder, if you’d like.

You’re going to love the health benefits you gulp down in this smoothie! Perfect for any new year, new you resolutions you’re trying to keep. Trop50, sweet potato and banana are all rich in potassium and plenty of other nutrients. And the Trop50 offers the same great taste of orange juice with half the sugar and calories.

And fresh it is, squeezed from fresh oranges and providing 100% of your vitamin C needs with no artificial sweetener – Trop50 has quickly become my favorite smoothie ingredient. I actually enjoy drinking it anytime I’m craving a citrusy blast of yumminess.
