Recipe by: Carissa Bealert, RDN

This vibrant purple smoothie is a great source of potassium and gets its color from purple potatoes and pomegranate juice. Containing 119 grams of carbohydrates and 19 grams of protein, this smoothie may aid in post-exercise recovery.


  • 4 small purple potatoes
  • 1 small banana, frozen
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 2 Tablespoons unflavored or vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 handful of ice cubes

Prep Time: 7min | Cook Time: 5min

  1. Place potatoes (whole, with skin-on) on microwave safe plate and pierce with a fork 2-3 times. Microwave on high until soft, 4-6 minutes. Remove from microwave and cool until next step.
  2. Blend all ingredients, including potatoes, in a blender until smooth. Add more honey or banana to sweeten as desired. Add more ice to thicken.


Time-Saving Tips:

  • Microwave or boil the potatoes ahead of time and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them.
  • Try placing the potatoes and the banana in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for even faster post-exercise prep.


  • Feel free to vary the types of fruit or fruit juices that you add to the smoothie. Try frozen berries or tart cherry juice for a new flavor option.
  • If you like a thicker smoothie, try adding Greek yogurt.
