Last weekend I spent most of Saturday evening eating copious amounts of smoked, barbecued meats and drinking wine. The following morning I woke up with a craving for dessert. Obviously dessert wasn't going to happen, so, I had the next best thing...a dessert smoothie.
Vegan Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie Recipe
3/4 cups of sweet potatoes
1/2 cup of steamed carrots
1 cup of coconut milk
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon raw Trader Joe's almond butter
1 tablespoon of Chia seed (for a smoother finish, grind seeds before using)
1/8 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. While not exactly a giant slice of sweet potato pie topped with whipped cream, It satisfied my craving for dessert and kept me full for hours....all at 364 calories.

This is a great smoothie to make on days when you are craving dessert but don't want to indulge....you know, because maybe you indulged in everything in the last month.
