Last night I dreamed up a new way of making sweet potatoes! Normally I will wrap them in foil with a little cinnamon and a sprinkle of cocoa, bake them in the oven until tender. I wanted something different last night and this recipe just popped into my head!

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

1 large sweet potato cubed – like you would make regular mashed potatoes

1 Banana

¼ tsp. vanilla flavor

¼ tsp. coconut flavor

Sprinkle of cocoa

Sprinkle of cinnamon

Sprinkle of All Spice

Zest of 1 orange

Juice of 1 orange

Boil sweet potato until tender, cut up banana and let boil to heat up. Drain water and put into mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix with mixer until smooth. Add more spices to taste.

I was pleasantly surprised by the turnout. I think this will be a new favorite to go with steak and asparagus! Enjoy!
