SWEET POTATO MASH!
Sweet potato is an essential part of my diet. It is a great complex carbohydrate that provides me clean energy to push through a grueling workout or recover from one. I usually bake 1 sweet potato, slice it up and eat it plain. However, when I want to kick up the flavor, I don’t add butter and sugar! I add a few simple ingredients to create a clean and tasty sweet potato mash.
1 medium sweet potato
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp agave nectar (optional)
Any type of nuts (No peanuts)
WHAT TO DO:
- Bake the sweet potato until it is soft enough to mash.
- With or without peeling the skin, place the sweet potato in a mixing bowl. Add coconut oil, almond milk, and agave nectar (optional). Using an electronic mixer, potato masher, or fork, mash the potato until it is smooth and all ingredients are mixed in (If skin is kept on , it will not be completely smooth).
- Sprinkle on as much cinnamon as you like and add nuts.
*Your portion size should be according to your goals. This dish stores easily and taste even better the next day, in my opinion!
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
I hope this helps someone, somewhere.
