On-The-Go Sweet Potato,Yogurt & Almond Butter Breakfast Parfait

By: The Food Hunter

Although they taste like dessert, sweet potatoes are in fact extremely good for you. They are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin B6and. They also contain lots of natural sugars which are slowly released into the bloodstream, keeping you feeling fuller and energized longer.

What I like most about sweet potatoes is that they don't have to take a long time to prepare a delicious sweet potato dish. Baking them wrapped in foil or roasting them in thin slices, highlights their delicious flavor in under an hour.

The recipe below mixes sweet potatoes with two other healthy ingredients: Stonyfield 100% Grassfed organic yogurt & Woodstock organic almond butter, to complement their sweetness and make them even more nutritional.


On-The-Go Sweet Potato, Yogurt & Almond Butter Breakfast Parfait
2 servings

1 large sweet potato
1/2 cup Stonyfield 100% Grassfed organic yogurt
3-4 Tbs Woodstock almond butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 on-the-go jars

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Use a fork to poke several holes in the sweet potato, and place on a baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 45-50 minutes, depending on the size of the potato. Sweet potato is done when it is fork tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.

Split the sweet potato open and use a fork to remove the flesh from the skin, into a bowl. Add the nut butter, yogurt  and cinnamon and mix until combined with the potato. Distribute evenly into 2 on-the-go jars and refrigerate until ready to eat.
For added protein top with a dollop more of yogurt & an additional drizzle of nut butter when ready to eat.
