Have you ever tried an authentic sweet potato pudding? Well here is your chance! This recipe is simple and so delicious its one of my favorites ever since I was a little girl in the Caribbean. Reminds me of being in Grenada and waiting for my grandma to make it for us.

Its also nutritious as its mostly just sweet potato but remember it tastes so much better and is more authentic with purple sweet potatoes and not those orange yams we all call sweet potatoes! Haha!

Well enjoy and let me know if you love it as much as I do.


  • 3 cups chopped, peeled purple sweet potatos
  • 4 tbs rice or gluten free flour
  • 3 tbs shredded coconut

  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 cup brown sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 cup milk (nut milk)

  1. Peel off the skin of the potatoes
