Sweet Potatoes with Fruit Cut-up or Mashed**











  • Sweet potatoes are delicious plain, but even better with fruit.   This is a staple for me.  
  • Mashed sweet potatoes (without skins) are pictured above, but it's quicker just to cut them up, with the skins.
  • The visual appearance of cut-up sweets isn't terrific, so the mashed version is good if you're serving it to others.    
  • The only reason to remove the skins is for visual appearance.  If you do, cut them into strips and broil them until they're a little crunchy, they're delicious.  
  • Everyone should keep cooked sweet potatoes in the fridge at all times, so they’re ready-to go.
  • Cut-up oranges seem to be the best fruit for this by far for some reason.  Blueberries are also great. Apples and other fruits work also. .  
  • This is a hearty, filling, satisfying and 100% healthy meal that you can have anytime: breakfast, lunch or dinner.
  • You absolutely don’t need butter or sweetener.  If you think you need a sweetener, get over it and add more fruit.  
  • Sweet potatoes taste a little better baked, but also delicious micro-waved or boiled.
    At 400 calories per pound, and with a very high satiety index, potatoes are a health food that helps people lose weight.  One of Chef A.J.s top three tips for ultimate weight loss is to "Eat Potatoes!"  ("You've been depriving yourself for far too long!")
  • Most (but not all) plant-based health authorities encourage consumption of white potatoes, but they all endorse sweet potatoes, which are even healthier.  



  • Cooked sweet potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Fruit, such as cut-up oranges, blueberries, etc. etc.


  • Nuts and/or raisins make this fancier and even more delicious.
  • A dash of brandy is delicious with this (in no way healthy, mostly sugar)
  • Maybe cinnamon


Combine in a bowl!      See Below!




Here are the broiled, crunchy skins (ready to eat, or to mix back in with the mashed sweet potatoes)





And here are the sweets with the crunchy skins!




 Here are mashed sweets with mango & walnuts.  You can't see the brandy, but believe me, it's there.
