This Healthy Sweet Potato Pudding is a super yummy and healthy treat. It tastes just like pie filling and contains only two simple ingredients!
Healthy Sweet Potato Pudding
I love to use the flavors of favorite desserts that are typically made with high amounts of added sugar and turn them into healthy treats and snacks for the whole family. This Healthy Sweet Potato Pudding is creamy and comforting, and is naturally sweet from the mashed roasted sweet potato. It reminds me of pie filling, but is also a great source of protein, calcium, and vitamin A.
TIP: This Sweet Potato Pudding works for dessert, of course, but it’s also a great snack or breakfast.
Ingredients in Healthy Sweet Potato Pudding
To make this simple and healthy dessert, all you need is Greek yogurt and mashed roasted sweet potatoes. I like to use vanilla Greek yogurt from Siggis, which has great flavor but not a ton of added sugar, but you can use a brand you like as well. If you’d rather use plain Greek yogurt, that’s fine too—just sweeten to taste with a little maple syrup.
Can I make this dairy-free?
You can swap in your favorite non-dairy yogurt, though a thicker Greek-style one will work better for the consistency.
How to Make Healthy Sweet Potato Pudding Step-by-Step
Here’s a look at the process of making this simple and healthy Sweet Potato Pudding. It’s so easy (especially if you have the sweet potato ready to go!)
- Add the ingredients to a standard blender and blend smooth. You can also use a wide-mouth Mason jar or large measuring cup and blend smooth with an immersion blender.
- Serve cold.
TIP: I like to make my sweet potato ahead in the crockpot and stash it in the fridge until I’m ready to make the pudding.
How long does this pudding store in the fridge?
You can store any leftovers (or simply make this ahead) in the fridge for 3-5 days in an airtight container. Stir together well before serving if any water separates, which could happen from either the sweet potato or the yogurt.
What’s the best sweet potato to use in this recipe?
I like to use roasted sweet potatoes in the crock pot. You can do that step a few days ahead and then blend this up in no time at all.
Can I serve this sweet potato recipe to a baby?
If you make this with plain Greek yogurt instead of the vanilla (which will have some added sugar), this is a great meal option for a baby. I made this sort of a thing a lot for my now-toddler and she always loved it!
Tips for Making the Best Healthy Sweet Potato Pudding
- Plan to prepare your sweet potato ahead of time and let it chill in the fridge before you make the pudding.
- Use thick Greek yogurt for the best texture.
- Choose plain yogurt and sweeten to taste, or you can use vanilla.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice if desired.
- Serve for dessert, or as a special snack or breakfast.
- Double the recipe to make more pudding.
