Creamy chocolate milk made with homemade sweet potato milk. High in calcium and chocolatey goodness!
  • 2 cups cubed sweet potato (no need to peel)
  • 4 cups water
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons coconut nectar or honey
  1. Fill a medium-sized saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add sweet potato and cook, covered, for 8 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and add to your high powered blender with 4 cups water.
  3. Blend for 1 minute, until completely pulverized.
  4. Run mixture through a nut milk bag. Alternatively, if you'd like to keep the milk thick and smoothie-like, do not use the milk bag.
  5. Pour the 'milk' back to the jug of your blender and add remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  6. Chill in the fridge overnight. Stir before serving.
Honey - if used, recipe is no longer vegan.
Sugars/Candida - if you are sensitive to sugars or have candida, you could try to replace the coconut nectar in this recipe with 2 tablespoons of xylitol. Alternatively, you could try stevia.
Sesame seeds - if you're sensitive/allergic to sesame, feel free to omit from this recipe. The only reason it is in here is to give the milk a boost of calcium. You could try replacing the seeds with almonds (soak in water for at least 12 hours, drain and rinse) and add them in at the same stage as the sweet potato.
