Prepare time: 5 min Cook: 5 min Ready in: 10 min
- 1 large sweet potato
- 2 tablespoons of almond milk
- 3 tablespoons of almond butter
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Fresh blueberries for topping
- More almond milk for topping
- More cinnamon for topping
1Wash the potato and banana and dry them with paper towels. Peel the potato and cut it into small slices. Set aside. Pre heat the oven to 400° Fahrenheit. Cut the sweet potato into half lengthwise. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and transfer them into the oven. Bake for around 35 minutes or until it is soft. Remove from heat and set aside.
2Prepare a food processor or blender. Scoop the sweet potatoes meat and toss it in the food processor. Add the banana, almond butter, almond milk, and cinnamon, and season with a dash of salt. Blend all of the ingredients together. Make sure to make several stop and scrape the side to make sure all ingredients are blended well. Pulse until the mixture turns into soft texture, like thick smoothie. Set aside.
3Transfer the mixture into a microwave bowl and heat in the microwave for several seconds or until it is warm. Take it out from the microwave. Prepare the serving bowl and transfer the mixture into the bowl. Top the bowl with more cinnamon on the entire surface, and a little almond milk to keep it watery. Last, add several fresh blueberries on top for a little crunchiness.
- You can skip the microwave process if you prefer to serve it in room temperature. Simply transfer the mixture into a serving bowl and add the desire toppings to serve it. However, the warm a calming and soothing feeling once you taste it.
- The topping ingredients are optional. You can add other toppings as desired. Several great alternatives include raisins, coconut cream, cocoa nibs, and unsweetened shredded coconut instead of cheese. Nut butter is great to replace the almond butter as well.
- You can also add winter squash or pumpkin in the mixture. It gives pleasant taste. Just make sure to reduce the amount of sweet potato that you use, and don’t forget to bake and mash the pumpkin or the winter squash first before adding. It needs the same treatment as the sweet potato before it is combined. Important to note, it always tastes better when you process the sweet potato, pumpkin, and winter squash in the oven rather than in the microwave.
