Tender cooked sweet potatoes form the base of this luscious autumnal pudding. Rich cocoa powder, caramel-like dates, and a dash of salty tahini transform it into a creamy treat that’s perfect for a Thanksgiving feast. The crunchy crumb topping is scented with the fall flavors of nutmeg and cinnamon, adding an extra cozy flourish to this good-for-you dessert.

Sweet Potato Chocolate Pudding with Pecan Crumble in a glass jar

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato, unpeeled, chopped into 1-inch cubes (4 cups)
  • 4 whole dates, pitted
  • ¼ cup unsweetened, unflavored plant-based milk
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon tahini
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • ¼ cup raw pecans, walnuts, or almonds
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped dates
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan combine sweet potato, whole dates, and 2 cups water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until sweet potato is tender. Drain sweet potato and dates in a colander; cool 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer sweet potato and dates to a food processor. Add the next five ingredients (through salt). Process until very smooth and creamy. Transfer to a bowl; cover and chill at least 1 hour.
  3. For crumble topping, in a clean food processor combine the remaining ingredients. Process until small crumbly texture. Sprinkle over chilled pudding.

Really good! Used a purple sweet potato – great texture, not too sweet; very satisfying.
