Yam Casserole

Yam Casserole


  • - 2 orange Yams or Sweet Potatoes (skin on)
  • - 1 ripe Banana
  • - Full fat Coconut Milk (to desired consistency)
  • - Cinnamon to taste
  • - Fresh grated Nutmeg, to taste
  • - Flaked Coconut, to top

  • Method:

      Baked the yams in an oven heated to 425 degrees until they are fully baked and soft (around 45 minutes). Let cool until you can comfortably peel the skin off. Adjust oven heat to 325 degrees. Once peeled, add the yams to a food processor. Add the peeled banana and cinnamon (amount depending on your tastes). Slowly add coconut milk to make the mixture blend into a thick paste. Scoop the mixture into a pie dish that has been coated in coconut oil to prevent sticking. Sprinkle coconut flakes and add freshly grated nutmeg on top. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until coconut flakes are slightly browned.

      Additional Options:

    • Add pieces of your favorite nut to the top before baking
    • Omit banana and coconut milk and blend in 3-4 oz. of applesauce and 1/2 apple
