  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
  • 2 tbsp golden raisins
  • 2 tbsp chopped walnuts


  1. Microwave or bake a sweet potato until the flesh is soft. (It takes about 4-6 minutes in the microwave; be sure to poke it with a fork a few times before putting it in!).
  2. Remove and let cool for a few minutes. When cool enough to handle, scrape the flesh into a small food processor. Add the maple syrup, almond milk, and cinnamon. Pulse a few times to create a smooth texture.
  3. Put the sweet potato mixture in a bowl and top it with the peanut butter (or almond butter), golden raisins, and walnuts.  Enjoy!

Recipe Notes


If you’re using this as a recovery meal and want to increase the protein, you can add a few dollops of Greek yogurt, ricotta cheese, or cottage cheese, or stir in a little protein powder.
