- One small-medium sweet potato
- ¾ cup of unsweetened plain yogurt (dairy or nondairy)
- ⅓ cup frozen berries of choice
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp nuts or seeds of choice
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- *optional: 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- Wash hands thoroughly.
- Wash the sweet potato thoroughly, pat dry, and pierce 4-5 times with a fork.
- Wrap the potato in a slightly damp paper towel. Place the potato on a microwave-safe plate and microwave 5 ½ minutes, turning halfway through.
- Stick a fork in your potato to make sure it is soft and tender. If your potato isn’t fork tender after 5 minutes, continue microwaving in 30-second increments.
- When your potato is tender, remove from the microwave carefully and allow it to cool for 5 minutes.
- After the potato has cooled slightly, place it in a bowl, and slice it open. If you prefer your potato mashed, you can do that here!
- Top with yogurt, frozen berries, chia seeds, nuts/seeds of choice, and cinnamon. Enjoy!
Feel free to use any yogurt you prefer. The berries and sweet potato naturally sweeten this recipe so you can use plain yogurt if you are looking to reduce added sugars that may be in flavored yogurts. Greek yogurt is also an excellent source of protein! Feel free to substitute the frozen berries in this recipe for your favorite frozen or fresh fruit.
