Vitamix Love and My Ever Best Recipe
I had no idea I’d be opening up a present revealing a Vitamix on Christmas morning this year.
It was on the top of my Christmas wish list, but I still didn’t think I’d actually get it. I had been wanting a Vitamix for the past 5 years or so, but I always said it “wasn’t necessary” when my parents asked me if I really wanted it.
I like to make do with the things I already have, so I always told them I was fine using my Nutribullet, but deep down I always did want a Vitamix. Luckily, I have one now and I no longer have to deal with my Nutribullet :D The Nutribullet just doesn’t have enough power for the stuff I blend up, so it was quite the task when making my Sweet Potato Milkshakes ;)
Speaking of my Sweet Potato Milkshake, since creating that recipe, only a few days have past that I didn’t make it. It’s that good! It’s my favourite way to refuel after my workouts, but also a great snack!
It tastes just like chocolate ice cream, which is pretty hard not to love. It even has Eddie’s and my Mom’s approval! ;)
I’ve tweaked the recipe since posting it last and since it was the first recipe I made with my Vitamix, I thought I’d share it with you today. So, here is the new, updated recipe of my original Sweet Potato Chocolate Milkshake. If you haven’t tried this recipe yet, give it a try now! And if you tried the original version, test out the new version – it uses frozen sweet potato (and a bigger portion!) to give you a more “ice-creamy” texture!
Chocolate Sweet Potato Ice Cream
2 cups cubed frozen baked sweet potato (bake sweet potato in advance, cube, and freeze)
1/2 cup almond milk
1 1/2 cups ice
1 scoop protein powder (chocolate or vanilla)
1 tbsp cacao powder
Blend and serve!
