Vegan Whipped Coconut Sweet Potatoes via @sharethis
I first fell in love with the combination of coconut and sweet potatoes when my kids were babies. Sweet potatoes are totally lovely on their own, but trying to make them fluffy without adding milk or cream (which are not good for immature tummies) is a tall order. As an attempted solution I started mixing naturally creamy coconut milk into baked mashed sweet potatoes. Not only was the resulting taste incredible, but the potatoes whipped up delightfully fluffy. The dish was always a favorite with both of my munchkins when they were babes and it still remains a favorite dish of their's -- not to mention my part-time vegan husband.
