{Today, I am excited to welcome Raia from Raia’s Recipes to Delicious Obsessions. She is sharing a fast and easy dessert recipe with us today that sounds divine. If you’re in need of a rich chocolate fix with minimal work, this recipe is for you! ~Jessica}

What kid doesn’t love chocolate pudding?

I can still remember my mom’s smooth, thick homemade version. I loved it! In this simple recipe twist, I pair two of my favorite things: chocolate pudding and sweet potatoes!

Since my family shares my love of sweet potatoes, I like to bake up a bunch of them at a time. Some of the potatoes get served for dinner, and whatever doesn’t get eaten I cool and stick in the fridge to make into sweet potato cookies, or this yummy chocolate pudding.

Sweet potatoes are naturally high in potassium, a critical electrolyte that helps our muscles function properly, and beta-carotene, which our bodies convert into vitamin A (and we all know what that’s good for – our eyes!). Since vitamin A is fat-soluble, I’ve added a little healthy coconut oil to this pudding to help our bodies properly digest the overflowing amounts (plus, I just really like coconut oil).

Also contained in the mighty orange tuber are calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, which work together for healthy bones, and betaine, which helps our cells retain water.

And of course, chocolate pudding’s nutritional benefit is in the form of happiness, which aids in digestion and overall well-being. ;)

About Raia Torn

Raia is a homeschooling, stay-at-home-mom of four crazy kids. After the birth of her third child in 2010, she was diagnosed with “trauma induced gluten intolerance”. This discovery turned her whole-wheat-bread, pasta-filled life was turned upside down and set her on a mission to find out what healthy really meant for her family. Aspiring to encourage other moms wandering the allergen-infested isles of grocery stores, she started her blog, Raia’s Recipes, to share her love of simple, allergy-friendly baking (and chocolate). Her easy, healthy recipes prove that eating allergy-free doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive! When she’s not whipping up something new in the kitchen, Raia enjoys trying to keep the plants in her backyard garden alive, hanging out with her church family, eating (allergy-friendly) pizza, and dreaming about all the things she would do if she had an acre of land to homestead.

    I’m not sure you’re aware that your blog says you’ve affiliate partnered with Vitacost but the first three links in the recipe are to Tropical Traditions (and Vitacost is around $2 cheaper for the same cocoa). The vanilla is the only one that links to Vitacost.

    I hope it’s alright to say this. Fell perfectly free to delete my comment if I was wrong in doing so. :)

    • Hi Joy – It depends on the specific ingredient as to where I purchase and I find that VC’s prices do change from time to time. It always pays to shop around! Enjoy! :)

  5. I LOVE it!

    I’ve been using the same basic recipe, only instead of sweet potatoes, I use ripe avocados. It tastes like chocolate pudding, and has the same rich texture.

    I love “crazy” ideas that simply WORK!

    Peace,

  9. Raia, THIS sounds and looks excellent. I just made chocolate Mousse with avocado (similar recipe). Love the sweet potato! So healthy and naturally sweet. Did you feel there were any strings? that is my only question :) Glad to see you over at Deep Roots at Home…that is how I found your blog! Blessings!

    reply 
    • Hi Jaqueline! Thanks for stopping by; I’m glad you found my blog. ;) If you just use a hand mixer, or a fork (which I’ve tried) it will leave strings. But using a high powered blender or food processor will do the job. :) I hope you enjoy the pudding!

  10. I want to make this right this minute!! But I only have tiny sweet potatoes. Any idea of an approximate measurement in cups of what you ended up with after cooking & peeling? Thank you!

    • Thanks for asking, Kristy! I would say I usually use about 2 cups of mashed sweet potato for this recipe. Hope you enjoy it! :)

  16. Does the coconut oil have to be virgin? I have LouAnna 100% pure coconut oil. But is not virgin. I have read in other places that if it is not cooked it should be extra virgin coconut oil. Do you know? Thanks, I look foward to trying this recipe!

    reply 

    Shannon Alexander
    Posted 03/24/14

    • Hi Shannon – There are two kinds of coconut oil: Refined and Virgin. Both are good for you. The virgin will retain the taste/scent of coconuts and the refined will be neutral in taste. Hope you enjoy the recipe! :)

  19. I’ve tried the avacado chocolate pudding and love it, so I’m curious to try out other healthy alternative ingredients. I do not, however, like sweet potatoes AT ALL. can you taste the sweet potato in this at all? I wish I could get myself to like them, I know they’re very healthy! This just might do the trick as long as I can’t taste the sweet potato!

    • Hi Dawn – I personally don’t think you can taste the sweet potato in this pudding, but keep in mind that taste is subjective. What I taste and what you taste may be completely different. :)

  22. these look amazing!!! I am currently a graphic design student at University of Wisconsin Stout. Our current project is to make a magazine, I am doing a health food magazine focused on sweet potatoes. I would love to be able to include this recipe along with some of the photography please let me know if this would be okay with, and if so how you would like it cited. It will not be distributed simply printed for class.
    Thank you so much

I’ll message her and see if she can swing by and give us an answer! :) If she gives you the OK, credit should be given to: Raia Torn, recipe author and photographer / http://www.deliciousobsessions.com and http://www.raiasrecipes.com.

  23. I made this recipe today…it’s very tasty but the texture is obviously a little different than pudding. I added a little almond milk to loosen it up a bit. I think I will prepare some coconut cream to top it with. This would be a great way to get young children to eat healthy. If they never had the real pudding they would never know the difference.

  24. OH MY! This is sheer genius!
    And SO delicious!!
    I made a small batch (as directed) for myself a few weeks ago and tomorrow I’m bringing a BIG batch that I made to serve 12 at my Yoga Training Seminar Lunch. THEY WILL LOVE IT… just like I do.
    THANK YOU!

  25. One of the easiest and most satisfying chocolate snacks you can make and eat. I sometimes add some unsweetened coconut to the pudding to switch it up a little, but it’s very good without it as well. Love this recipe!

  26. When you say sweet potatoes, are you talking the orange fleshed yams or the yellow fleshed sweet potatoes? The two are often used interchangeably, and they’re different items. Thanks.

    reply 

    Wes
    Posted 09/29/14

    • Hi Wes – You could use either one. There are over 400 varieties of true sweet potatoes around the world, with colors ranging from dark orange to white. There are also over 600 varieties of yams, so it’s easy to see why people get confused! In this recipe, you could use either one! Hope you enjoy! :)

      reply 

      Jessica Espinoza
      Posted 09/29/14

      • Thank you for the quick response! I’m going to try the standard garnet yam first since they’re sweeter and have more moisture content. With these ingredients, I’m sure it’ll be delicious regardless. And, easy to adjust if needed.

        reply 

        Wes
        Posted 09/30/14

        • Absolutely! I think any variety would be tasty, but that is a good thought regarding the sweetness and moisture. Enjoy! :)

    • Hi Mary – We’ve never tried it with anything other than the coconut oil. You could try another oil of your choice or some butter and I think it should work OK!
