Did you know dates contain iron and fiber?

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)
  • 1 cup mashed roasted sweet potato 
    • Bake whole sweet potato for approximately 1 hour at 375 F until soft. Cool, peel off skin and mash.
    • 1 large sweet potato yields approximately 1 cup of mashed sweet potato flesh.
  • 2 pitted medjool dates 
    • You can add in an extra date or two if you want the pudding even sweeter.
    • I purchased mine from No Frills; most grocery stores, bulk food stores and health food stores carry them.
  • 1/4 cup of soy or almond milk 
    • You can use regular milk and if you don't care about the pudding being vegan.
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
Tip! Feel free to add in 1 or 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or peanut/almond butter if you want to add in some healthy fats/calories. I do this for my daughter since she has the metabolism of a hummingbird and needs all the calories she can get. And let's be honest, peanut butter and chocolate is the best combo ever! If your pudding feels too thick, you can adjust the consistency by adding a little more milk.

  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor, vitamix or using a hand blender until nice and smooth.
