Dinner for One: Sweet Potato Pudding

Basic Green Thickie Recipe

This recipe for a Green Thickie is made using Sweet Potatoes so it is grain free, gluten free, completely raw and very healthy.  Adria from Healthy Vegas Vegan has a very inspiring story and a dramatic transformation when she changed her diet to a high raw plant based one.  Look at her before and after photos here.  She also shares detailed information about a day in the life of a low fat raw vegan, and some great ebooks.

Adria DeCorte from healthyvegasvegan.comWhen I first read Katherine’s Basic Green Thickie Recipe, her option of including sweet potatoes instead of oats intrigued me.  In the middle of my self-imposed challenge All Raw Food All Week, I decided to try designing a tasty but simple Sweet Potato Thickie for my dinner meal.

I undertook this all-raw week as a way to show my readers how a healthy produce-based diet can actually be very simple.  In fact, for 7 days, I committed to eating only fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds.

At the end of the week, I wrote an epic post with photos, descriptions, and nutrition facts for every meal and snack I put in my mouth for those entire 168 hours.

Throughout the all-raw week, ideas for my breakfasts and lunches came easy.  But since my goal was to inspire people with variety, I wanted to make sure I had several different choices for my dinners.

I often use sweet potatoes raw – they are actually quite good and not too hard to digest.  I usually like to spiralize them into noodles and toss with a homemade sauce or cut them into thin chips and serve with dip.  But, this time I thought I would blend them.

This thickie has only four whole food ingredients yet it makes a meal.  The supporting flavors are mild so the sweet potato stays the dominant taste.  That being said, you could add your own spices and flavorings to jazz it up how you like it.  If you want it sweeter, add a few pitted dates when you blend.

I also wanted to make it a simple dinner recipe eaten with a spoon.  So, I made mine thicker by omitting any liquid.  But if you’re on the go, you could easily add some nutmilk or coconut water to make it a smoothie you can sip through a straw!

I found it to actually be pretty tasty and very filling.  The color was a really pretty burnt orange until I added the spinach – which turned it brown.  The spinach flavor wasn’t noticeable at all; you might even be able to double up the portion without it tasting too green.

Now your turn.  Have you ever blended something unusual in your thickie and been surprised when it turned out tasty?  Leave it in the comments below.

  1. Catherine says

    ZUCCHINNI!!!!! goes great in smoothies and you can hardly notice its there. Gives it a smooth slightly creamy consistency

  2. What a great idea. I’ve been eating sweet potatoes twice a week just to maintain my weight. I think I’ll have a little fun with this by adding some pineapple and cinnamon and drinking sweet potato pie.
