Sweet Potato Pudding (Sugar Free)

Sweet Potato Pudding (Sugar Free)

Sweet potatoes can be hard to love. Only one of our kids like them, and it took me until just a few years ago to enjoy the flavor. I learned to love them partly because they are a nutrient packed food with lots of health benefits. According to Livestrong, sweet potatoes contain vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, fiber, B vitamins, potassium and even iron. In fact, Whole Foods considers sweet potatoes one of the healthiest vegetables we eat. A medium sized sweet potato contains more than your daily requirement of vitamin A, nearly a third the vitamin C you need, almost 15 percent of your daily dietary fiber intake and 10 percent of the necessary potassium. Antioxidants abound in sweet potatoes, which also have anti-inflammatory properties. The beta-carotene and vitamin C in these tubers work together to rid the body of cancer-friendly free radicals. Diabetics can eat sweet potatoes without worry as these tubers have a low glycemic index.

So, with that in mind, I’ve been trying to figure a way to make sweet potatoes that my kids will love. Here’s the recipe that took them from turning their noses up at sweet potatoes to asking for more!
