Sweet Potato Smoothie

I love to mix up the veggies in our smoothies during the colder months, and reaching for comforting ingredients like sweet potato just feels right. I make this smoothie for my toddler and I share to share at snack time or at breakfast, and it’s creamy and flavorful.

This sweet potato smoothie is also super easy to drink from either a toddler cup or reusable pouch.

This is a great way to use up a little leftover roasted sweet potato—or a good reason to make some.

Ingredients in Simple Sweet Potato Smoothie

To make this smoothie, you’ll need yogurt (plain or vanilla), mashed and cooled roasted sweet potato, orange juice, hemp seeds (optional), a few ice cubes, and pumpkin pie spice. You can sub in a clementine or small orange for the orange juice if you’d like, and even add in a tablespoon of almond butter for additional healthy fats and protein.

TIP: The citrus keeps the flavor bright and the pumpkin pie spice adds that perfect-for-fall flavor.

Step-by-Step Instructions

The process of making this Sweet Potato Smoothie is SO easy!

  • Put the ingredients into a blender.
  • Blend, starting on low and working your way up to high.
  • Serve immediately or store in the fridge to serve within an hour or two.

TIP: The sweet potato should be cooled completely to ensure that the final smoothie is cold.

Can I make this toddler smoothie dairy-free?

Sure. Just use a favorite nondairy yogurt instead of regular dairy yogurt.

How do I serve this smoothie to my toddler?

You can serve a small portion in an open cup or try a reusable pouch. This reusable pouch from Squeasy Gear (the little teal one shown above), is my favorite one since it’s virtually impossible for the kids to squirt out the contents—so there’s no incentive to play with it!

What’s the best way to make roasted sweet potatoes for this smoothie?

I like to make a batch of roasted sweet potatoes in my crock pot since they are totally foolproof and come out tasting perfectly creamy and sweet. Once cooked, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days, which then makes this Sweet Potato Smoothie come together super quick.

What should I serve with this toddler smoothie?

If this is a snack, you can serve it by itself. If it’s a breakfast and your toddler tends to be hungry in the morning, try a piece of whole grain toast, a whole grain muffin, or another complex carbohydrate to balance out the ingredients in the smoothie. Or even a hard-cooked egg.

Best Tips for Success

  • Make the sweet potatoes ahead and chill them before using them in this recipe.
  • Use sweet potatoes cooked in the crock pot to make the prep work easy.
  • Use nondairy yogurt if desired to make this recipe dairy-free.
  • You can use purchased or freshly squeezed orange juice.
  • Serve in a small open cup or a reusable pouch.
  • Serve with a whole grain such as toast, crackers, pancakes, or a granola bar.
