Whoa. When I heard about sweet potato popsicles I thought, “Gross” and “Awesome” at the same time. Maybe I’ll take a weekend to get crazy with my vegetables because I’m interested to see how these turn out and.
- 3 organic sweet potatoes
- ¼ cup of organic apple juice (sub soy milk if you want it creamier)
- 2 Tbsp of organic honey
- ½ tsp of organic nutmeg or cinnamon (or both)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Wash your sweet potatoes and cut in half. Place skin side down on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until fork tender. Remove from the oven and let cool. Scoop out the sweet potatoes and throw away the skin. In a blender, combine the sweet potatoes, apple juice, honey and spices. Puree until smooth. Add more apple juice if the mixture is too thick – you should be able to pour it. Pour into your popsicle mold and let freeze. Serve frozen and enjoy.
*If you don’t have a blender you can mash the sweet potatoes for a slightly chunkier popsicle.
