Servings 6 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, washed, peeled and diced
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, organic butter or ghee
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

Instructions
 

  • Place 3-4 inches of water in the bottom of a 4 quart saucepan and bring to a boil. Add a steamer basket, place the sweet potatoes inside, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are soft.
  • Place cooked sweet potatoes in a medium size mixing bowl, and add the orange juice, maple syrup, coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla, and ginger. Combine well with a fork until smooth.

Notes

Instead of steaming the sweet potatoes, they could be baked in an oven at 400 F on a lined baking sheet for 35-45 minutes, or until soft.
