  • 2 cups 470g tightly packed pre-cooked purple sweet potato
  • 2 cups 185g unflavoured or vanilla whey protein powder
  • cups 45g ground rolled oats or oat flour (subsitute with ¼ C dessicated coconut if desired)
  • 2 US tablespoons 42g honey ((use more if you prefer a sweeter flavour)
  • 2 teaspoons 5g vanilla essence
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • cup 43g chopped pecans  (optional)


  • Blend all ingredients (except the pecans) together in the food processor until a pudding consistency is achieved.
  • Remove from the food processor. Add in the chopped pecans and stir well.
  • Refrigerate for up to 4 days. May also be frozen in individual portions in a muffin tray (grease first, use muffin cups or a silicon tray to prevent sticking


  • Equipment: food processor, high speed blender or Thermomix
  • I buy pre-cooked frozen purple sweet potatoes, peel and then measure the right amount. This recipe will also work with other sweet potato or pumpkin - if using pumpkin, additional protein powder or oat flour may be needed to balance out the extra water content of the pumpkin.
  • Water can be added to the recipe if a less dense texture is desired.
