This is a great post-workout snack to replenish carbohydrates. Sweet potatoes are a great source of vitamin A and potassium. They also contain fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, riboflavin, copper, panthothenic acid and folic acid. The deeper the color, the higher the nutrient content. Sweet potatoes can be flavored numerous ways so don’t hesitate to add more ingredients, substitute or have them plain (they are rich in flavor all on their own).
Wash potatoes and cut into pieces. Boil for 12-15 minutes, until soft (when you can easily stab a fork through the entire piece of potato). Remove liquid and mash/stir with a large fork. Stir in coconut. Add cinnamon and salt as desired.
Time: 15-20 minutes
