Sweet Potato Pudding

This amazing creamy sweet potato pudding is vegan and gluten-free, and is a fantastic plant-based holiday dish that is popular with everybody!

Roast your sweet potato to get the best flavor. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg deliver those signature holiday flavors, orange juice and zest adds a tangy and sweet note, and maple syrup adds a nice smokey caramel note to this sweet potato pudding.

Once again, “tweak-to-taste” with this sweet potato pudding for your perfect blend.

Just like the cranberry pudding, my favorite way to serve this sweet potato pudding is straight out of the blender carriage where it has been warmed slightly by the friction heat of the blades. But you will get more of a pudding consistency if you chill it in the fridge. It also tastes better the next day when the flavors have had a chance to infuse.

Serve this sweet potato pudding with a dollop of cashew cream and some orange zest.

  1. Outrageous! I can’t wait to try this. If it is anything like your cranberry mousse, I’ll have another healthy sweet treat I can slip past the kiddoes!

    1. Elaine,
      It is every bit as good as the cranberry mousse! Glad you enjoyed that one. They are both so easy and tasty 🙂 Oink Oink!

  2. I adore this recipe. It is so flavorful and has the right amount of tart and sweet and spice. With the topping there for texture and heartiness it strikes the perfect balance. The color combo is pretty great too!
    Make sure to put a large dollop of cashew cream on top … absolutely divine !!!!

  3. LOL! Oh Nikki that is hilarious.
    I am glad you are enjoying some vegan recipes! Thanks for giving this one a go. Oink Oink 🙂

    1. I think it is simple because the method is so easy! It’s not exactly taxing to sprinkle spices into a blender; the more the merrier in my humble opinion 😉 I can’t wait to try this!! xx

  4. Looks Amazzzzing! I really need the nutritional information on this and all of your recipes as I’m on a strict diet.

    1. I’m so sorry Smeci. I don’t have nutritional info for any of my recipes on the site. You can join Nutrition Data for free and punch them into that software.
