Chocolate Sweet Potato Pudding

2 3/4 cup (660mL) mashed cooked sweet potatoes (about 3 medium), cold (see Note)
5 tablespoons (75mL) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup (60mL) pure maple syrup
2 teaspoons (10mL) vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon (3mL) ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon (2mL) salt
3 to 4 tablespoons (45 to 60mL) unsweetened nondairy milk

Put the mashed sweet potatoes, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt in a food processor. Process until smooth, adding the nondairy milk until a desired consistency is achieved. Though it can be served right away, it tastes even better refrigerated overnight.

Note: Baking the sweet potatoes in the oven rather than cooking them in the microwave adds extra sweetness and flavor. To bake, scrub the potatoes then wrap in aluminum foil. Poke with a sharp knife about 5 times. Bake at 425F for about 45 minutes, until tender. Refrigerate until cold, then remove the skin.

      Yes! Chocolate cupcake. Add some Coconut Whipped Cream and deglazed pears and we’ve got ourselves a trifle. Want to come over? ;)

      It should be similar! I have another on this site using avocado, and I’ve done them with that combo, too. I don’t love it with banana, though, compared to the other versions).
