I added soy milk (didn't have yogurt), honey instead of sugar and a bit of nutmeg, cinnamon and this became my new favourite tasty, health drink. This is what I love about AllRecipes, you see a recipe, the variations that others have tried, personalize it to suit your taste and first thing you know you have a delicious creation that goes into your recipe box.

I was looking for a quick smoothie recipe to use the cooked yams I'd had in my fridge. Sounds weird, but when you have two kids five and under, you need a quick breakfast that'll give you the energy you need. I did a little scaling down for one. I used a whole frozen banana, which crossed out the need for ice cubes. I added orange juice instead of milk, which crossed off the need for sugar. I added a little cinnamon for flavor. I also used nonfat sugar-free strawberry yogurt because that was the only yogurt I had. Eh. It was okay. Served the purpose and gave me the energy I needed. Don't know if I'll make it again but thanks for the idea.

Very bland tasting. I had to add sugar and pumpkin pie spice just to have some flavor.

I made half the recipe and used a small 15 oz can of yams, drained. My son loved it and my daughter thought is was ok. (She thought it should have been sweeter.)I liked it, I think it would also be good with a can of candied yams or with cinnamon and other spices. Thanks for a yummy recipe!

i did not like this recipe very much, this is not a recipe i will make again. it was not sweet at all and it had a bitter/ tangy taste.

It was okay. I agree that it was a little bland tasting, and I added some cinnamon and when I make it again next time (with the leftover ingredients I already have), I'll add honey, more sugar, nutmeg, and maybe some ground cloves. The base is great, though, and I really like the texture!

This turned out good! And helped me clear out my leftover sweet potatoes. I made a few adjustments based on other reviews. Used one and a half frozen bananas; no ice. Used 1 cup plain yogurt (what I had) and added a tbsp of honey and a few ounces of OJ so I didn't have to use sugar. Also added tsp of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. I told my kids it was a banana-orange smoothie--and even though they don't like sweet potatoes they went for it!

I thought this was excellent.. I didn't have vanilla yogurt on hand, only had strawberry and it worked out GREAT!! I also added some creamed coconut and cinnamon. I don't normally use ice cubes in my smoothies as I find it waters them down some. I usually cut up and freeze bananas and use them in place of the ice cubes!! Thanks for the recipe!!
