Sweet Potato Soft Serve

Sweet Potato Soft Serve - an easy and healthy fall treat. | WorthCooking.net

What do you get when you mix together sweet potato puree, maple syrup, cocoa butter, vanilla and spices together?

I am not sure everything you could get. But, I got a ridiculously expensive total failure. Definitely NOT white chocolate sweet potato pie! It was a dump-it-out level of failure. As I was dumping it what I failed to do before hand (add up the cost of the ingredients) made me sick to my stomach. That $20 pie was hard to swallow in many ways.

If I had taken a bit to actually think about how doable it was, I would not have even tried it. I was just blinded by coming up with a gluten/dairy/coconut/egg/squash/honey free alternative to Pumpkin Pie. It is my ultimate favorite fall dessert, and I want to share a version of it with my daughter.

But, at least one good thing came out of it. I had 3/4 cup of sweet potato puree left over, combine that with 5 of the 100 bananas I recently froze, a few spices and a generous drizzle of molasses (yum!) and we enjoyed a healthy, and not budget breaking, fall treat.

Sweet Potato Soft Serve
Serves: 4-5
  • ¾ cup sweet potato puree, frozen in small bits (I just did teaspoon sizes on aluminum foil and froze for an hour)
  • 5 bananas frozen, sliced (can slice before or after freezing)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon + more for sprinkling if desired
  • 2 T date paste OR 1 Tablespoon honey
  • Molasses to drizzle, optional
  1. Blend all of the ingredients but the molasses together in a high powered blender, or food processor (what I used) scraping the sides as needed to get it to blend.
  2. Serve with molasses on top.
  3. Best served immediately, but can be frozen too (it does get pretty crystally though)
