Diabetic Fruit and Mashed Sweet Potatoes Recipe

It might come as a surprise to many people who know that I’m not diabetic, but I have a lot of diabetic recipes. That isn’t for just when I prepare something for someone who is a diabetic, but it is also because these dishes are quite tasty and not especially difficult to make.

That is the case of fruit and mashed sweet potatoes. If you like sweet potatoes, you are likely to like this meal, and it is a slightly different way to make sweet potatoes, though similar to many other recipes in some ways.

Fruit and sweet potatoes ingredients:

4 medium-sized sweet potatoes, not peeled

¼ cup unsweetened pineapple juice

1 tablespoon crushed or chopped pineapple

2 tablespoons low-sodium chicken broth

1 teaspoon butter

1/8 teaspoon powdered nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon allspice

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Fruit and sweet potatoes instructions:

1. Boil the sweet potatoes in a pot of water for about a half-hour or until tender. Remove the skins, put the sweet potatoes in a bowl and mash them. (The skins should come off easily after boiling, saving time and effort, compared to peeling them first.)

2. Add the butter, pineapple juice, and chicken broth. Use a hand mixer to mix this until fluffy.

3. Add the crushed pineapple and spices. Turn these into a lightly greased baking dish and bake at 375° F for about a half-hour or until lightly browned. Serve hot.

This dish is a great companion to pork or ham and it goes well with a green salad. The pineapple adds an unexpectedly good flavor while bringing out the flavor of the sweet potatoes. The spices are similar to those used for pumpkin pie, so while the aroma is familiar, the flavor is unique to sweet potatoes.

This is a keeper, particularly if you like sweet potatoes.

    • If you try this one, let me know what you think. I believe that you also like sweet potatoes if I remember correctly. There are carbs in the sweet potatoes, but no sugar is added.
