Recipe FAQs:

Can I Use Raw Sweet Potato Instead of Cooked?

No, I do not recommended that you use raw potatoes. Use cooked sweet potato (steamed or boiled) for easier blending and better digestion. Raw sweet potatoes can be hard and may not blend smoothly.

Can I Use Canned Sweet Potato?

Yes, canned sweet potato is a good substitute as long as it's unsweetened and not packed in syrup.

How Can I Adjust The Consistency Of The Smoothie?

If the smoothie is too thick, add more dairy-free milk until you reach your desired consistency. If it's too thin, add a couple of slices of frozen banana or a few ice cubes to thicken it.
