Fall in San Diego tends to feel less like traditional fall and more like living in the Sahara desert. With temperatures soaring over 100 degrees, I am searching through the heat to find just a little bit of fall somewhere.  So naturally, I looked inside my smoothie! 

This smoothie has the perfect blend of summer and fall with warming spices, cooling coconut yogurt and the classic California avocado.  Want it cold? Freeze your steamed sweet potatoes ahead of time. 

Where ever you are during this time of year, I know this smoothie will hit the spot!
