Healthy{ish} Sweet Potato Pie

Bring on the parties and yummy side dishes! Stuffing our bellies with delicious foods and delectable goodies is a great way to start off the holiday season, and we cannot wait.

However, sometimes we want something a little different on our dining room table. Sweet potato pie is pretty popular, but we added a healthily flare to it to further entice your taste buds.

Let’s get baking!

Sweet Potato Pie | Yields 6-8 servings

Ingredients

1 9-inch pie crust
16 oz sweet potato puree
1 cup coconut milk
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
2 tbsp ground flax
1 tsp tsp salt

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degree and set pie crust to the side.
Blend the potato puree, coconut milk, vanilla, vegetable oil, maple syrup, coconut sugar, cinnamon, cloves, ground flax, and salt together until completely smooth.
Once mixed, pour the filling into the crust and then bake for 30-45 minutes on the center rack.
After slightly golden, take out the slightly-underbaked pie, and let it cool.
Once completely cooled, place in the fridge, where it will firm up and maintain a smooth texture overnight.
Enjoy the next day!
