Yields 2 servings of Sweet Potato
- 1 small sweet potato
- 2 T hot water
- 2 scoops Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin
- 1 C coconut milk
- 1 t vanilla extract
- Sweetener of choice, honey or stevia
- First, steam your sweet potato in a steamer until tender by piercing the sweet potato with a fork. If you’re short on time, pierce your sweet potato with a fork on both sides then wrap your sweet potato in a wet paper towel and place it in microwave for about 2-3 minutes to steam.
