This smoothie is a favorite in my family and is quick and easy to make. You could also use a large can of yams in place of cooking the fresh ones.

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.
