Potato Type: Purple
Prep Method: Microwave

Dish

Breakfast/BrunchSnack

Prep Time

7 Mins

Cook Time

5 Mins

Serving

Serves 1 (makes one 16 oz. smoothie)

Ingredients

  • 4 small purple potatoes
  • 1 small banana, frozen
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 2 Tablespoons unflavored or vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 handful of ice cubes

Preparation

  1. Place potatoes (whole, with skin-on) on microwave safe plate and pierce with a fork 2-3 times. Microwave on high until soft, 4-6 minutes. Remove from microwave and cool until next step.
  2. Blend all ingredients, including potatoes, in a blender until smooth. Add more honey or banana to sweeten as desired. Add more ice to thicken.

Notes

Time-Saving Tips:

  • Microwave or boil the potatoes ahead of time and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them.
  • Try placing the potatoes and the banana in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for even faster post-exercise prep.

Customizations:

  • Feel free to vary the types of fruit or fruit juices that you add to the smoothie. Try frozen berries or tart cherry juice for a new flavor option.
  • If you like a thicker smoothie, try adding Greek yogurt.
