Brandon competed in the NC/ SC CrossFit Sectionals this past March (and did REALLY well, I am extremely proud of him). At the event, they were selling sweet potato shakes to the crowd. We didn’t try one simply because they only took cash and I had zero dollars in my pockets. Who carries cash anymore? So, this is how I imagine it would have tasted (Maybe a little better than theirs?).
- Sweet potato mash* from this recipe
- 2 1/2 c carton vanilla coconut milk
- 1 scoop vanilla egg white protein powder
- 1 t vanilla extract
In a blender add all ingredients. Blend until smooth. Add more coconut milk if the mixture isn’t coming together.
*Preheat your oven to 425°F. Cut 3 sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Roast in the oven until the skins have slightly charred and the insides are soft, about 30 minutes. Scoop out the insides and use for the shake. Reserve the skins for our Chili Cheese Dogs.
