This Purple Sweet Potato Smoothie Bowl is so easy to make and requires just 2 ingredients. It's a beautiful lilac colour, a shade very rarely naturally found in the food we eat!
It’s perfect for breakfast because the sweet potatoes will charge you with lots of sustainable energy to keep you fuller for longer.
Just cook some sweet potatoes at the weekend, keep them in your freezer in individual portions, then take them out in the morning and you’re only one blend away from a delicious and healthy start to the day!
Purple sweet potatoes, or murasaki imo as they’re called in Japanese, are often used in Japanese desserts and their taste lends itself to sweet things much better than regular sweet potatoes, as they’re much sweeter and their aroma is almost perfume-like.
This Purple Sweet Potato Smoothie Bowl is delicious as it is, but is even better when you scatter delicious toppings over it - think:
- fresh fruit
- desiccated coconut
- coconut flakes
- dried fruit
- freeze-dried fruit
- nut butter
