“Loaded” Sweet Potatoes for Breakfast

IMG_8570.JPG

What a fun way to switch up your breakfast options! I came home from a Soul Survivor class, aka a 60 min spin class, and was starving. I was tired of my usual eggs or oats for options, so I turned to sweet potatoes. Loaded with nutrients, I popped a sweet potato into the microwave, scooped out the insides and mixed them with some yogurt and protein powder (due to the post-spin nature). Drizzle it all with some nut butter, top with some bananas and sprinkle with whatever toppings — I liked nuts for a crunch and dried fruit’s texture. This Loaded Breakfast Sweet Potatoes is satisfying and a welcomed change to your breakfast routine.

Ingredients (serves 1).

  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1/4 c yogurt of choice, I used Siggi’s vanilla
  • 1 T plant-based vanilla protein powder like LivWell (optional) *
  • 1 T unsweetened almond milk (or more to thin)
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1 t almond butter
  • Toppings such as:
    • 1/4 t chia seeds
    • 1 t chopped walnuts
    • 1 t raisins
    • Cinnamon
* Please Note: I have received products from LivWell, but I only post recipes with things that I have made and loved myself. Sharing is caring, right? Use the code EDSR10 for 10% off.

Directions.

  1. Carefully slice the sweet potato lengthwise. Pierce the inside with a fork. Place cut part face down on a plate and microwave 4-5 min until the inside is soft.
  2. Scoop out the sweet potato’s inside and mash in a small bowl. Mix in yogurt, protein powder (optional) and almond milk. If needed, quickly heat before spooning back into sweet potato skins.
  3. Top each half with banana slices. Drizzle with almond butter.
  4. Sprinkle with chia seeds, walnuts, raisins and cinnamon.
  5. Enjoy!
