Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene— an antioxidant that may help improve immunity and prevent cancer. Pairing beta-carotene rich foods with a small amount of fat, such as the coconut milk, helps your body to better use this fat-soluble vitamin.
This coconut sweet potato recipe was recently featured on the Dr. Oz episode “Cooking Lessons for Longevity.” Now you can whip this tasty recipe-up at home, and serve it with your next meal. Pairs great with roasted vegetables and baked tofu.
Tip: For a different taste and lower fat, substitute half the coconut milk for fresh orange juice while mashing. Remember to add the ground cinnamon!
