  • 1 medium-sized purple sweet potato (about 200g/7oz)
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or sub any other type of plant-based milk)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional - or sub any other sweetener)


  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into small pieces
  • Boil or steam for about 15 minutes, or until soft enough to pierce with a fork
  • Drain and mash the sweet potatoes with a fork
  • Once cooled, transfer the mash into a freezer-friendly container and place in freezer until completely frozen
  • Place the frozen mash into your blending device of choice along with the milk (and sweetener if you wish)
  • Blend until completely smooth – you will probably have to mix it around a few times during this process to make sure it’s all evenly blended
  • Serve up and enjoy immediately
