Sweet potato is one of my all time favourite carbohydrates – delicious in savoury and sweet dishes, it blends beautiful with a variety of herbs and spices; it really is a versatile veggie.
So this week, I decided to try something with my Box Fresh sweet potato that I’m surprised I haven’t done before really. Sweet potato pudding! This was just a very quick, experiment that turned out to be delightfully delicious. I really enjoyed this little treat after my legs session on Saturday.

If you don’t eat dairy, then grab yourself some Coyo coconut yoghurt instead. I kept mine very plain to fit my macros; but I think serving with some coconut flakes or crushed walnuts would make this extra yummy.

Sweet potato

  • Sweet potatoes contain almost twice as much fiber as other types of potatoes. Contributing close to 7 grams of fiber per serving, they make an excellent starchy addition to any meal. The high fiber content gives them a “slow burning” quality.
  • They contain a large amount of vitamin B6. This vitamin is crucial in breaking down a substance called homocysteine, which contributes to hardening of the arteries and blood vessels. Vitamin B6 helps keep the walls of these important blood passageways flexible and healthy which allows blood to flow freely.
  • High amounts of potassium. Potassium plays an important role in lowering blood pressure by ridding the body of excess sodium and regulating fluid balance. It is also an important electrolyte that helps regulate the natural rhythm of the heart, and maintains normal function of the brain and central nervous system.
  • Good source of Manganese; it is a pivotal component in the metabolism of carbohydrates which helps support healthy blood sugar levels. This can help stabilise the appetite for hours as opposed to the temporary satisfaction that comes with most other carbohydrates.
  • One medium sweet potato provides your body with the complete recommended daily allowance of vitamin A and then some.
