Sweet Potato Protein Shake

Sweet Potato Protein Shake

So I have trying to do protein shakes as meal replacements for my current daily diet plan.  I am not doing fad diets because I think they are silly.  Since these are replacement breakfast every morning and lunch on occasion as well, I want to make sure I have the nutrients I need.  So for this shake, it may sound odd but it is truly the tastiest shake I have made so far.

* 1-2 bananas

* Handful of fresh spinach

* 1 medium sweet potato

* 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

* 1-1 1/2 cups vanilla almond milk (or however much you think you need)

Peel the sweet potato and put it in the microwave for about 3 minutes or until soft.  Cube and add to the blender.  Add the remaining ingredients and blend!  It is super simple and incredibly tasty.  I categorized this as breakfast but this was actually my lunch today.  For breakfast I used a frozen fruit medley instead of a sweet potato.  I liked the sweet potato for lunch because it made me feel like I was eating something meatier.
