Maple-Whipped Sweet Potatoes

Easter is just around the corner. I can’t believe it, yet I’m so excited that spring is here. Blooms, blue skies, easter egg hunts, and family dinners – are highlights of the season. This simple side dish is one of my favourites for a few reasons – I love sweet potatoes, it’s incredibly easy to make, it tastes heavenly, smells divine and melts…in…your…mouth! Oh, and it’s sure to get rave reviews, in case you’re going for that.

Not only is this recipe all that and a bag a chips, it packs a healthy punch. Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin B6 and full of Vitamin C. They are also a good source of magnesium, which is the relaxation and anti-stress mineral; hello, we all need more of that! Then throw in the benefits of virgin coconut oil and pure maple syrup – oh yeah, pure maple syrup has over 54 anti-oxidants – and you’ve got one nutrient rich recipe. Enjoy!

  1. These Maple-Whipped Sweet Potatoes look so yummy! We are looking to get our younger kids to eat a variety of foods like sweet potatoes, and they may like this recipe, especially since there is maple syrup in it! Thanks for sharing it with us!

    1. That’s so great to hear Lian! It’s tough getting kids to eat different vegetables, even when you think they’re into one, they switch gears, so trying new recipes/new veggies is key! So happy you’ll give this a go 🙂
