This smoothie is surprisingly delicious. Who knew bananas and sweet potatoes went so well together. The cinnamon and almond milk around out the flavors for a creamy and decadent morning treat. This would be a great recipe for leftover mashed sweet potatoes from dinner the night before! —Ultimate Paleo Guide
