SWEET POTATO LOVE

Sweet potatoes are highly nutritious root vegetables that come in a variety of colors. Although the orange variety is the most common, they also come in white, yellow, and purple varieties (my personal favorite).

They are an excellent source of beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.

I love that they are so versatile and can be prepared in both sweet and savory dishes. If you can, boil the potatoes whole with the skin to prevent the loss of nutrients.

Sweet potatoes are an excellent addition to a healthy diet and provide a number of health benefits, so if you haven’t tried them yet, I highly recommend you do.

HOW TO MAKE SWEET POTATO CHOCOLATE PUDDING

You can find a complete list of ingredients with exact amounts and instructions in the recipe card below.
STEP 1

Place sweet potatoes, coconut cream, roasted hazelnuts, raw cacao powder, and maple syrup into a high-speed blender and process until smooth and creamy.

STEP 2

Serve in jars and top with chopped roasted hazelnuts. The pudding is ready to eat right away or you can chill it in the fridge.

TIPS AND HOW-TOS

Maple syrup: If you prefer, replace it with agave or date syrup.

NOTE ON COCONUT CREAM

Chill full-fat canned coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight so that you can easily separate cream from the liquid. The cream should be firm enough so that you can scoop it out with a spoon.

HOW TO BAKE SWEET POTATOES

Preheat oven to 200°C

  • Wash orange-flashed sweet potatoes thoroughly and pat them dry with a dishtowel.
  • Place on a baking sheet and put them in the oven to bake for 35-45 minutes depending on size.
  • Check at 30 minutes by inserting a fork into the center. They should be soft. If not, return to the oven and check again in 10 minutes. Let them cool down a bit before peeling.

HOW TO ROAST HAZELNUTS

Roasting hazelnuts deepens their flavor and gives them a crisper texture. Here is how to do it:

  • Preheat oven to 175 °C. Spread the hazelnuts in an even layer on the baking sheet. Place in oven and roast for 10-15 minutes. Stir or shake the tray every 5 minutes to help the hazelnuts to cook evenly.
  • When the hazelnuts are browned and smell nutty, remove from the oven, and immediately transfer onto a plate or another baking sheet.
  • Once they are cool enough, place them in a clean tea towel and gently rub together until most of the skins have come off.

Thank you Nensi! I made a similar recipe from another blog author and it was really good, but the consistency was more like cake frosting than pudding! Your use of the coconut cream should do the trick to really make it pudding. Can’t wait to try it out.

Thank you so much, Eric! If the pudding is too thick, feel free to add a few tablespoons of rice or almond milk. That should do the trick.
