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. 😉
