Alright, so you may go coo coo for cocoa puffs over this dip... wait, wrong cereal. Silly rabbit. This dip is actually magically delicious, and of course it is green in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Take a bite and you'll agree this party staple is creamy, silky smooth, full of protein, and highly addicting. Also you'll find that it is the perfect companion to some Beanitos black bean chips or even sweet baked banana chips. So grab a blender, this is only going to take about a half hour!
First, I should probably clarify, this is a dip made out of sweet potatoes, not a dip for sweet potato fries. (Although that's definitely something I'm working on because I am mildly addicted to those delightfully crunchy, baked sweet potato fries....with sea salt....fresh from the oven...Ahem. I digress.)
Not too much to report this week, although I'm having minor exploratory surgery on Thursday. Gulp. A little bit nervous about it, but the new food allergies (peppermint, thyme, oregano, vanilla, raspberries, walnuts, sesame seeds, white potatoes, and the list goes on...39 new ones) are out of control. So, if this is what it takes to get to the bottom of it, I'll happily do it.
In the mean time, I'm trying to enjoy the last little bits of "cooler" weather here in AZ with early morning hikes, evening runs, and yoga/meditating outside. But, I felt the beginnings of a scorching summer today while doing photography. There was actual sweat happening while simply standing outside to take pictures...in the shade. But alas, this just means my addiction to smoothies is actually justified now, so I'm cool with it. (Strike that, I'm hot with it. lol)
Mmkay, sweet potato time!

So obviously I was having a little bit of St. Patrick's Day fun with the green food coloring, but I promise it tastes aaaalmost as magically delicious without the color.
