Ever since January 6th, I have been trying to decrease my sugar intake. I must admit (pat on my back) that I have done a very good job for the most part, with only some small slips here and there. Recently, I developed a recipe for sweet potato pudding that I can’t stop making and eating. Warning: there is some maple syrup in it — so while sugar-cane free, there is still some (a very small amount) of sugar.
* 2 yams
* 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
* 1 tablespoon of almond butter
* 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
* 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
* 1/3 cup of almond milk
Enjoy! Do you have any healthy low sugar desserts up your sleeve? If so, do share!

Good for you!! I should be trying this less sugar thing too. I am adding this to my list of desserts to make after brownies made out of dates!
Oh la la! This looks sooooo good. I need to buy a blender and make this sometime. It’s crazy how many delicious things you can make with sweet potatoes!
As the official /un-official doorman/taste tester I can say without a doubt this pudding was best. I was given some and tried my best to bring some home for my wife..but alas..it never saw the dark night air!!!
Looks great! I have also been trying to use less sugar. We grow sweet potatoes but none in garden now.
I’ve had good luck cooking sweet potatoes in the microwave, if you don’t have time to roast them. Be sure to pierce the skin a few times, then cook on high about 6 minutes, rotating halfway through.
