Summer is not, yet, Gone!

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.

Sweet Potato Popsicles

  • 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.

    This kind of sounds like Thanksgiving-on-a-stick.

    That’s just weird enough to be intriguing…

    Things like this usually sound weird to most people but something I’d probably want to try. I’m assuming that soy milk part doesn’t apply to us since it has soy? And I guess it needs to be pure apple juice with no sugar added.

    You could, perhaps, try coconut milk. I’m not sure what it’s like after it’s frozen, but I’ve blended coconut milk with frozen bananas and strawberries and it makes a pretty thick-enough ice cream.
