I made my first ombré smoothie a little over 6 months ago, and it’s been humbling to see the growing response to my work since then. I’ve held off on sharing recipes for these creations for a number of reasons, but I finally feel like the time is right. You guys! I’m super excited to share an ombré smoothie recipe with you here on WU HAUS. And especially this one because it has all my favorite spices in it and I love fall!
A couple of notes: Be sure to steam the yams the night before you make the smoothie. I used about 2 small/medium sized jewel yams. If you don’t have time, or if you prefer, canned pumpkin would work great in this recipe. I wrote this recipe out a little bit differently than the others on my blog, so just be sure to read the whole recipe through to be sure you have all the ingredients you will need.
I’d love to see your ombré smoothies! Use #WuHaus on Instagram to share your beautiful creations.
