"Dairy and Egg Free" Sweet Potato Chocolate Pudding

Sweet potato makes it creamy, but you can't taste anything but chocolate!

Almond milk, as needed to thin
1 microwaved sweet potato with skin removed
Steam a handful of baby carrots in the microwave

Put it all in the Vitamix with a small handful of choc. chips and a little vanilla extract and blend. 

That's it! 

Then you just refrigerate it.

Sweet and Savory Pasta Sauce

A yummy pasta sauce in the Vitamix using:
1 cooked sweet potato (microwaved until soft, then remove skin)
1 can of carrots (drained)
1 bag of  cubed butternut squash (roasted first)
1 can of white Northern Beans (drained and rinsed)

Just blend (adding in almond milk and/or water as needed) and then added in salt and garlic powder.

Pour into soup pot to warm.

Served over penne.

Not exactly "mac n cheese" but very tasty and healthy!
