The oatmeal and sweet potato in this smoothie both provide exceptional amounts of fiber and carbohydrates. When made with vanilla yogurt and vanilla soy milk, with a touch of spice, it tastes a lot like pumpkin pie and also has a good protein balance. It would make a great post run recovery drink. You could substitute pumpkin for the sweet potato in this recipe if desired. Also consider using almond milk instead for a bit different flavor.
It is best to use cooked sweet potato cooked, which reportedly actually brings out its nutrients more than eating it raw. I think it blends a bit better that way too.
