A delicious Paleo-friendly way to eat more veggies in the morning, or as a snack, or as whenever!

 As you may recall, I have recently been introduced to the wonders that is the Chia Pudding (see here for the first lot of chia pudding recipes).  Well, I’ve been branching out a little and trying new things in my chia puddings, and I keep coming back to this one.  Some of you may wonder at putting sweet potato in a chia pudding, but why not?  It works well in brownies, it works amazing in pancakes, so why not in a pudding?

And it’s so simple, too.  It just requires a little forethought and preparation.  Or you could just get into a routine and bake/roast a sweet potato on a regular basis and keep it in the fridge/freezer so you’re ready to make this whenever the mood hits you.

And you can top it with so many different things.  Above I’ve topped it with some Paleo muesli but you could also just add whatever granola you wish on top (I highly recommend any of the granola recipes on this website!), fruit such as strawberries or blueberries, and/or nut butter of choice … peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter.  The options are endless.

But for those of you who originally turned their noses up at the concept of a sweet potato chia pudding, I dare you to make this.  And tell me what you think!
