Sweet Potatoes

("Inspired by our friend, Katie.")

(courtesy of Shawna Korgan. Serves 2 to 4)

2 sweet potatoes

Coconut oil

Splash coconut milk

Sprinkle cinnamon

Truvia/stevia (to sweeten, if desired)

Peel, boil, and mash the sweet potatoes until smooth. Add a small dollop of coconut oil, the coconut milk, cinnamon, and, if desired, the sweetener, and mix until fully blended.

*If you want it to be a real "dessert treat," refrigerate a can of unsweetened coconut milk overnight; it will thicken. Scoop out the thick coconut milk (leave the remaining liquid), add a small amount of stevia and beat with a hand mixer until fluffy, and voilà! Coconut whipped cream to top the sweet potatoes!

 

Power Green Korg Smoothie

(courtesy of Shawna Korgan. Serves 2 to 3)

“I usually just throw everything in the blender, so I don’t have exact amounts,” Shawna says about this smoothie recipe that she makes in a Vitamix blender. She suggests adjusting the proportions of ingredients to taste.

Almond milk, coconut milk, hemp milk or water

Blueberries

Strawberries

Kale

Beets

Apple

Protein powder (Shawna uses Jay Robb brand, “because it doesn’t contain any artificial anything,” and Navitas Naturals products also are a staple in all of their smoothies.)

Add your choice of milk or water to the blender, followed by the chopped fruits and vegetables and protein powder, and blend until smooth. Start with a small amount of liquid and add more until desired consistency is reached. If you prefer a thicker, colder smoothie, add ice.
