Sweet Potato Babe Bowl
 

Sweet Potato Babe Bowl

Do you ever crave that soft, pudding-like texture from acai bowls, but you don’t want something too sugary or fruity? Or are you too busy (or lazy) to blend a nutritionally loaded smoothie bowl, but craving one?

Then organic sweet potato puree may be what your tastebuds ordered.

Why sweet potatoes?
Sweet potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse! They act as an anti-inflammatory and are rich in beta-carotene, B-vitamins, vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, niacin, and phosphorus. They are also a good source for dietary fiber.

Why puree?
If you enjoy the base of your bowl to be mashed, thick and creamy consistency, then a pureed fruit or vegetable is the way to go.

Other puree alternatives:
Not in love with sweet potatoes? Try pumpkin or butternut squash puree! Similar consistency and even lower in calories.

Why do you call it plant-based babe bowl?
Most of my meals are these healthy plant-based “babe” bowls, like this sweet potato puree bowl, because they’re super nutritious and easy on the tummy to make you feel and look like a babe.

Sweet Potato Bowl Recipe:

STEP ONE:
Easy puree:
Open up a BPA-free can of organic sweet potato puree

Make your own puree:
Rinse the sweet potato in cold water and peel skin with a vegetable peeler. Dice into small chunks. Bring water in a medium saucepan to a boil. Reduce heat and add sweet potatoes chunks and cook for 10-15 minutes until tender. Drain sweet potatoes and rice with cold water for 2-3 minutes. Puree sweet potatoes in food processor blend and blend until smooth.

STEP TWO:
Add puree to bowl

STEP THREE (Optional):
Make it a plant-based protein sweet potato bowl by mixing in 1 Tbsp of nut milk and 1 scoop of your favorite plant-based protein powder.

STEP FOUR:
Decorate sweet potato puree with fruits and healthy fats. Recommendations at least two fruits and one healthy fat:
Blueberries
Raspberries
Strawberries
