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 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!
