This dessert is about as guilt-free as you can get while still packed with both nutrients and FLAVOR! I must emphasize the extreme importance of buying quality ingredients, however. I recently made the mistake of purchasing conventional sweet potatoes from the local discount superstore. Their color was anemic and their flavor was like cardboard. Please, don’t skimp on sweet potatoes! Buy organic for vibrant color and flavor!
Sweet Potato Chocolate Pudding
2 medium/large sweet potatoes (organic)
1/3 cup almond milk (plain, unsweetened)
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Chopped walnuts (optional)
Bake sweet potatoes in your preferred method. (I was lazy and used the microwave.) Cut in half and scoop the insides into a blender. Add remaining ingredients. Blend together. Spoon onto individual serving plates and garnish with chopped walnuts, if desired.
You can eat this warm and it tastes really good. If you can wait until it chills in the fridge for a little while, it tastes awesome. It all depends on your patience and willpower. 🙂
