Sweet Potato Butter – quick and easy way to prepare healthy and flavorful vegan spread in under 30 minutes.
I’ve done apple butter, pear butter and pumpkin butter already, but never sweet potato butter before. It is as easy to make as any other type of butter. You cook sweet potatoes in apple and orange juice with addition of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. A tablespoon of molasses ads another layer of flavor (and darker color). Some grated orange zest can be added, too. In the end you sweeten it with sweetening of your choice: stevia, agave syrup, honey or maple syrup.
I peeled my sweet potatoes, but you can use them unpeeled if you have blender powerful enough to turn it into a paste.
Add more apple juice if you want your Sweet Potato Butter to be thinner. Keep in a jar in your refrigerator for a few days.
