This grain-free no-oats (“noats”) sweet potato porridge may sound odd, but it is SUPER tasty! Better still, it’s packed with micronutrients, fibre, healthy fats and protein for a complete and satisfying meal.
Riced sweet potato brings a wonderful chew & natural sweetness to this brekkie, along with heaps of fibre, vitamins & minerals (such as vitamin A, C and potassium), and disease-fighting antioxidants. Studies suggest that sweet potato consumption can have anti-cancer, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits, and even support blood sugar regulation and healthy weight loss.
Ingredients for 4 servings:
2 cups riced raw sweet potato (see note below)
1 can (1.5 cups) organic full-fat coconut milk
1 cup unsweetened cashew or other non-dairy milk, plus additional as needed
1/4 cup Nuzest Clean Lean vanilla or chocolate protein powder
1/4 cup coconut flour
3 Tbsp raw cacao powder
2 Tbsp Further Food collagen peptides (omit for vegan)
2 Tbsp gluten-free flaxseed meal
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp gelatinized maca powder
pinch sea salt
optional Lakanto monkfruit sweetener or pure stevia, adjusted to taste
optional toppings: fruit, nuts or seeds, nut butter, raw cacao nibs or chocolate chips/chunks, granola, unsweetened toasted coconut flakes, bee pollen
Note: You can purchase pre-riced sweet potato or make your own by grating raw peeled sweet potato with a food processor or hand grater.
Put a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the sweet potato, coconut milk, and 1 cup cashew milk and stir to combine.
Bring to a gentle boil then reduce heat to low. Simmer for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the protein powder, coconut flour, cacao, collagen, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, maca, and salt, and stir well to combine.
Continue cooking for 5 minutes or until porridge reaches desired texture and consistency, stirring occasionally. Add additional cashew milk if thinner porridge preferred.
Remove from heat and sweeten to taste. Serve with your choice of toppings.
