Sweet Potato Smoothie

The sweet potatoes do double duty by making the smoothie extra sweet and extra creamy! Thanks to their carotenoids, sweet potatoes stabilize blood sugar and lower insulin resistance (a condition that can lead to diabetes), restoring energy and helping women shed up to eight pounds a week! Plus, their beta-carotene and vitamin C help eliminate the free radicals that contribute to heart disease and colon cancer.

2 small bananas (preferably frozen — I cut my bananas into segments before I freeze them)
1 fresh orange, peeled, seeded and juiced
1 cup milk or soy milk, like Vitasoy
1/4 cup cooked sweet potatoes, smashed with a fork
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt

Everthing in your blender til smooth. Yummo and so good for you! Serving: 2.
