Sweet Potato Boats

These healthy sweet potato skins are stuffed with mashed sweet potato and mashed avocado. They are soft and creamy enough to be put in pies and called dessert, sweet potatoes are also a surprisingly nutritious vegetable. They are rich source of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber that are essential for good health.


3 sweet potatoes
1 ripes avocado 
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Bake the sweet potatoes in their skins. Allow them to cool. When the potatoes are cool, slice them in half lengthwise and gently scoop out the flesh, leaving behind enough to hold the shell together.
  2. In a food processor add avocado, the reserved sweet potato and process until well mixed. Then add honey, cinnamon and the reserved sweet potato and process until well mixed.
  3. Mound the filling back into the sweet potato shells and bake in a 350°F oven for 20 minutes. Sprinkle sliced almonds and chocolate chips before serving. Enjoy!
