  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal or hemp seeds

Method: 
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place sweet potato on a small baking sheet and roast until very tender, 50 to 60 minutes. Halve sweet potato and let cool, then peel. (You’ll have about 1 cup flesh.) Sweet potato will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.  

Combine sweet potato, coconut milk, yogurt, flaxseed, honey and nutmeg in a blender and blend until smooth. Add ice and blend again until smooth. Pour into 2 or 3 tall glasses and garnish with toasted coconut, if using.
