Ingredients
  

  • 2 medium-size sweet potatoes (~10oz, any color; I have used orange)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup No-waste almond milk (or sub with store-bought)
  • 1 medjool date (or sub with 2 of any other variety)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tbsp dried shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 pinches ground cardamom (or sub with 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon)
  • 1/2 tbsp slivered almonds (raw or lightly toasted, can sub with equal amount toasted pistachio or walnuts)

Instructions
 

To roast the sweet potatoes

  • Preheat oven to 375°F (~190°C). Clean the sweet potatoes scrubbing well and rinsing under running water to remove any dirt. Prick with a fork or a sharp knife to make 3-4 small cuts/holes in the sweet potatoes.
  • Add to an oven-proof, shallow dish with 1/4 cup water.
  • Cover loosely with an oven-proof lid of aluminum foil making sure that the foil doesn't touch the sweet potatoes. Roast for about 60 minutes.

To make the sweet potato pudding

  • Let the roasted sweet potatoes come to room temperature. Add the roasted sweet potatoes to a blender with rest of the ingredients and blend till well mixed. Check for any unblended sweet potato chunks. Garnish with Multipurpose almond whipped cream and nuts. Chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Notes

Variations
  1. If you are craving chocolate, add 2 tbsp of pure cacao (or cocoa) powder in the blender with the rest of the ingredients.
  2. If you are a fan of cinnamon, add  1/8 tsp of ground cinnamon with 1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract. I often rotate the flavors. 
Make it heart healthy
Use the regular almond Quick Homemade Almond milk and omit the dried coconut shreds.
