When treats are often everywhere during the holidays (or just on normal days!), this Healthy Sweet Potato Pudding is a super yummy alternative that still tastes like a rich and creamy treat…just like pie filling!
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 toddler-friendly treats and snacks with a healthier nutrition profile. 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.
We love this Sweet Potato Pudding for dessert, a special snack, or even, I admit, for breakfast! I like to make a double batch to ensure that there’s plenty for me to eat too.
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. The sweet potatoes are often really sweet so you may not need much! And of you can top it with a little sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon.
Can I make this dairy-free?
You can swap in your favorite non-dairy yogurt, though a thicker Greek-style one will work better as far as the consistency goes.
How to Make Healthy Sweet Potato Pudding Step-by-Step
Here’s a look at the process of making this simple Sweet Potato Pudding. It’s so easy if you have the sweet potato ready to go!
- Add the ingredients to a standard blender and blend smooth. Or into a wide-mouth Mason jar or large measuring cup and blend smooth with an immersion blender.
- Serve cold.
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 yogurt 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!
