This recipe comes from a series of Sweet Potato recipes we've been working on. We had plenty of leftover Sweet Potato.
Fall makes me think of Apples.
You could use any apple but we had green on hand.
I love this drink so much more than anticipated. The texture was lovely, like a smoothie but containing only Sweet potato, Apple and Dates. The spices include Garam Masala which is an Indian spice, not spicy at all more like a pie spice. We added a good zip of cayenne pepper which could be left out to no detriment.
Add ice cold water and plenty of ice cubes.
This is a great recipe to drink in the car en route to work or shuffling kids around to school or sports.
