Sweet Potato Breakfast Pudding

Ever since my Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl adventure, I have been infatuated with sweet, cinnamony, sweet potato concoctions.  So please excuse me for posting another recipe of this nature BUT this is really tasty and really easy, and that's what it's all about, right?  (Go ahead, do the hokey pokey and turn yourself around).  This breakfast pudding has an oatmeal like consistency with a little bit of crunch, some sweetness, and a mighty cinnamon punch.  Add some raisins, and you've got yourself quite a breakfast treat.

This recipe is graciously borrowed from a member of  "Daniefon" made some alterations to the original pumpkin pie in a bowl recipe and posted his results.  I tried them, achieved success, and would like to share his idea with you!  I did, however, make a couple slight changes and gave it a name (well, Mom gave it a name).  Apparently I don't have the ability to leave a single recipe as is...

Sweet Potato Breakfast Pudding

1 cup chopped sweet potato
4 dates, pitted
1/2 avocado, peeled, pitted, and chopped
2 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon raw agave nectar (added for a little extra sweetness, not necessary)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch each nutmeg, ground ginger, and allspice
1-3 tablespoons of water (add slowly to help everything blend until desired consistency is achieved)
raisins and cinnamon (optional as a garnish)

Throw everything together (not the raisins) in a food processor and process until well combined but still a bit chunky.  Spoon about half of the mixture into a bowl, sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon and top with raisins.  Enjoy!

I also must mention that I am sipping an amazing fruit smoothie right now: 1/2 a mango, handful of strawberries, about 3/4 cup of fresh pineapple, and the juice from one orange.  All the flavors combine into a whole new tropical fruity taste. DELICIOUS!!

  1. Sweet potato is a highly nutritious and an alternative for food for their valuable contents of carbohydrate, protein and carotene, which are necessary for normal development and even for the sexual development too, believe it or not. Sweet potato is really helpful for welfare and our body.
