AIP Sweet Potato Pudding: A Perfect Grain-Free Breakfast

Jump to Recipe

Sweet Potato Pudding is like a dessert that you can eat any time of day. If I could, I would eat my Aunt KK’s Sweet Potato Pie at every meal; but this is a healthy alternative that almost hits the mark. If you’ve never had KK’s pie, you’ll think this is amazing.

I actually need to give recipe credit to Dr. Mitchell Rasmussen, DC. He started making this pudding as a easy filling snack that is high in nutrients, high in healthy fats, and lasts a few days. It’s really perfect for that- make a batch, split it up into glass jars, and enjoy over several days.

You can mix it up with toppings. That’s the real magic. Plus, it’s delicious warm as a grain-free porridge (AIP friendly) stand-in -or- chilled as a sweet potato pudding bowl. Try it out and let me know your favorite style.

If you’re looking for an effortless, blend-and-serve type of recipe- here it is. Sweet Potato Pudding comes together quickly: with super-clean ingredients that keep you feeling your best. 

Sweet Potato Pudding Recipe
Clean, Dairy-Free Ingredients

This is my simple, go-to base ingredient list:

-One large sweet potato – Baked (do it quick in an AirFryer or Instant Pot)

Coconut Milk, canned

-Maple Syrup, or Liquid Stevia (optional)

-Sprinkle of Sea Salt (Maldon is the beeest!)

When it comes to toppings, let your imagination run!

You could do seeds, nuts, coconut flakes, nut-free granola, cacao nibs, nut or seed butters, or even fresh fruit. If you prefer it on the savory side, leave out the sweetener and add chili flakes! My go-to combo is chia seeds and coconut flakes. Mix it up day-to-day to keep your leftovers from feeling boring.
