Nothing characterizes the feeling of the holiday season quite like the rich flavor of spiced sweet potatoes. So get cozy with our Spiced Sweet Potato Smoothie!
Sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A, C, and manganese, which are crucial for eye health, bone development, tissue and ligament repair, and more!
Associated with healing and purification, turmeric gives this smoothie its vibrant color. Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric also contains powerful antioxidants that may help prevent cancers.
Seen as a symbol of love and prosperity, cinnamon is another antioxidant-rich spice that contains anti-inflammatory properties.
Last but not least, the orange adds a citrusy touch while providing an abundance of vitamin C. This vitamin plays a crucial role in fighting skin damage from the sun and pollution, as well as reducing wrinkles and improving overall skin texture.
