Fruity Sweet Potato Smoothie with @broadappetite on Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

I have to admit, I’m the kind of girl who likes to roll out of bed and make a pot of dark coffee to wash down that plate of crispy bacon and eggs-over-easy. For better or worse, I’m a foodie that celebrates pork, fat, and carbs. But this year, I turned thirty, and the cholesterol-packed lifestyle is starting to catch up with me. In an attempt to improve the health of my arteries and spice up my morning routine, I joined the ranks of those who throw healthy things into a blender for a delicious breakfast.

At first I made your standard strawberry-and-banana-and/or-blueberry smoothie. Within two weeks, I was bored to death. Why was I treating the smoothie like a second-class meal, without any enthusiasm or creativity?

That’s when I looked to my Korean heritage for some inspiration and came up with a sweet potato smoothie I love. When I visited Korea a few years back, I was surprised to see sweet potatoes as the star in cakes, ice cream, and oh-so-yummy lattes. It soon became my personal goal to find the best sweet potato latte in all of Seoul. I thought if sweet potatoes could be incorporated into my morning Joe, why not try them in a smoothie?

The result was everything I was looking for: a silky smoothie with a creamy texture but still bright with the addition of mango and orange juice. And unlike other smoothies, it fills me up until lunch. It also feels good to know it’s packed with beta-carotene, calcium, potassium, and vitamins A and C. But most importantly, it’s a breakfast I look forward to when I wake up each morning!

I need this banana peach green smoothie like I need air, because running a household of six people, especially when four of them are little kids, is hard work. So hard. There are days when I can’t remember what I did five minutes ago, let alone important things like my name or where I live. How old am I again?
Oh wait, don’t remind me of that.

Most of the time, I feel like I need more hours in a day just to get everything done. Do you ever feel like that? It’s such a crazy, fast-paced world we live in, and it can be a struggle to finish a single task sometimes.

So it’s pretty easy to imagine that I can forget to eat, often, and because of that, I find myself more rundown than I should be since I’m not getting the proper vitamins and minerals from the meals I keep skipping.

When it comes to striking back and getting in the groove of happy eats I turn to my Hamilton Beach Personal Blender. Seriously, this thing is amazing. In just minutes I can whip up an amazing smoothie packed full of delicious fruits, veggies, dairy, and even protein, and I can carry it with me on the go! So while I’m off picking up my preschooler, I can be sipping on some banana peach green smoothie goodness. Or maybe a berry smoothie. Or a grape kale smoothie.

What I love best about this banana peach green smoothie is that it has a little bit of everything, so it’s more like a power smoothie. Perfect for breakfast, or after an intense workout. Gets you going without getting you down, plus it’s balanced in its flavors and utilizes maple syrup for sweetness instead of table sugar, so there is no guilt with this bad boy!

Grab your own personal blender and whip up this smoothie today, tomorrow, and the next day!

Can you believe it’s already November? This is the month where most people look at the calendar and realize the year is almost over. “Where did it go?” they ask, knowing no one else can answer because every one of us feels the exact same way.

Cold weather has settled in at our headquarters in Richmond, Virginia, and we’ve been embracing fall flavors in every way, especially pumpkin. The pumpkin food craze starts in late September and continues until December, so we wanted to figure out a way to celebrate the big orange squash in a smoothie. It’s all part of #Smoovember, our tribute to fall-inspired smoothies made in our Smoothie Smart blender. During the month of November #Smoovember, we’ll bring you some great fall smoothie recipes and host weekly giveaways with an incredible grand prize in week #4.
