Are you looking for a sweet potato carob pudding that has a chocolaty taste, satisfies those sweet cravings, keeps that full feeling going and best of all contains veggies? Admittedly this is a starchy veg but veg nonetheless.
If you have the sweet potato roasted and the coconut milk made you can make this sweet potato carob pudding quickly and easily using a Vitamix high speed blender. This is the model that I use: Vitamix CAD or Vitamix USD. I have tried using a food processor but it doesn’t seem to be quite as successful for this particular recipe. The food processor doesn’t achieve the same silky smooth velvety texture that is so important for this pudding.
You will want to roast the sweet potato and either buy or make your own coconut milk. If you make your own, pour the milk into a small pot and rinse (no need to wash) the Vitamix container and lid before combining the rest of the ingredients for this pudding.
When I bring this pudding to someone’s house it sparks a lot of interest:
- is that ice cream?
- well … what is it?
- Pudding ..
- what’s in it?
- Sweet potato and avocado.
- Ewww …
Some people turn their noses up at this once they find out what is in it but … THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE MISSING. This sweet potato carob pudding is delicious.
