If you love yams!
Then you must try this ice cream/pudding dessert. Whatever you call it it is delicious and so good for you. When we were at the Whole Foods in Denver earlier this month a company out of Boulder was sharing samples of their new recipe. Sweet potato ice cream. Sorry, I didn't catch the name or brand of it but it was excellent so I was determined to try it when I got back to Wisconsin. I don't remember the exact taste of the one in CO but nevertheless this was still delicious.
I took 3 organic yams and baked them as usual. I put them in the fridge for a day or so to get plenty cooled. I then peeled them, mashed them, and added the rest of the ingredients I thought up.
1 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 to 2 cups chopped pecans (more or less)
2 T. organic vanilla
2 cups cream
Mix well and eat this way or freeze. We did both. We ate some and the rest we froze. It was a really good hit with my family! You should try it.
