Okay I know the idea of a smoothie and swamp being in the same sentence doesn’t sound the best. However, this swamp smoothie bowl tastes delicious! This is smoothie that you don’t have to question the ingredients on.
The reason I made this recipe was because I missed thick ass smoothies. Common ways to thicken a smoothie is with bananas, avocados, psyllium husk, or xanthum gum. As a I heal my gut, bananas and avocados triggers flare-ups for me. As for the psyllium husk or xanthum gum are often used in gluten-free baking, but it can be associated with leaky gut and other digestive issues.
This is when I learned about freezing vegetables to make thick smoothies!
Some great vegetables are cauliflower, cauliflower rice, zucchini, sweet potato, and honestly any vegetable you won’t. This swamp smoothies star ingredient is sweet potatoes!
My biggest tip is to roast the sweet potatoes for an hour, remove the skin (Don’t throw them away and eat them instead!), and store in the freezer. I got square silicon molds so I have cubes of sweet potato. This is what makes the swamp smoothie super thick!
This smoothie does have dairy, but it can easily be swapped out with any nut milk. This will make is paleo and whole30 friendly! As for topping this is where the real fun is. I highly recommend checking out my coconut butter or maple cashew cookie dough granola for nice source of fat and crunch. Some other great toppings are nut butters, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, or granola.
