Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes
These sweet potatoes are not just for holidays; they should be enjoyed year-round.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4
- 4 sweet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 3 ounces low-fat cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ginger
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Wash sweet potatoes and then place on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour. Allow potatoes to cool. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out inside flesh into a mixing bowl. Keep potato skins intact.
In a second mixing bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, agave nectar, and spices. Add the cream cheese mixture to the sweet potato and mash to blend well.
