Sweet Potato Poppy Seed Paste



  • 1 baked sweet potato
  • 1 TBSP poppy seeds
  • 2 soaked and pitted dates (or 1 packet of stevia)
  • 1 tsp orange or lemon zest
  • a few drops of vanilla, almond, or maple extract
  • splash of nut milk (I like unsweetened vanilla almond milk)


  • Slice sweet potato (You can peel but not necessary).
  • Blend with remaining ingredients.


I like to spread the paste on pancakes…

Can’t wait to try this!
Would it be okay with pumpkin instead of sweet potato? My family aren’t really sweet potato fans…unlike me!

Rachelle, yes, I think this recipe would taste great with pumpkin. Hope the fam enjoys it! 🙂
