Are you completing a whole 30? Are you sick of eggs? Are you vegan and don't eat eggs or breakfast meats? Are you looking for something other than oats or a smoothie for breakfast?
I have the breakfast for you. My loaded sweet potato parfait is totally customizable and filled with protein, fiber, and healthy fats to stabilize blood sugar, fill you up, and fuel a kick-butt day!
Whole 30 Sweet Potato Breakfast Parfait
1 roasted sweet potato
1-2 scoops collagen peptides (optional but recommended for extra protein)
1/2 cup of dairy-free plain yogurt (I like this one)
1 tablespoon chia seeds
frozen blueberries (or fruit of choice)
nut butter for topping (cashew, almond, coconut, Nuttzo, sunbutter)
*optional-nuts, seeds, or coconut flakes for topping instead of nut butter
1. Add sweet potato to a bowl and heat up.
2. While warming up your sweet potato mix in 2 tablespoons of chia seeds into a yogurt cup. Make sure the yogurt is dairy-free and sugar-free to be whole 30 compliant. If you are not vegan or whole 30 feel free to use your favorite yogurt.
3. Stir collagen peptides into the warm sweet potato. Top potato with 1/2 of the yogurt cup. You can store the other 1/2 in the fridge for a snack or to use the next day.
4. Add fruit of your choice on top. You can use fresh or frozen fruit. I like to frozen blueberries that I buy in bulk from Costco or BJ's.
5. Add a topping of choice, either nut butter, coconut butter, nuts, seeds, hemp seeds, coconut flakes or a mixture of these. Sprinkle with cinnamon then enjoy.
*Don't have sweet potato? You can substitute butternut squash, acorn squash, or kabocha squash.
How to roast the perfect sweet potato:
1.Preheat oven to 450
2. Line a baking sheet or pan with silicone baking mat or parchment paper
3. Slice a few lines in the sweet potatoes
4. Roast sweet potatoes in the oven for 45-60 minutes. You will be able to tell they are ready when they are soft and some of the natural sugars are seeping out onto the parchment paper. Sometimes it takes longer depending on how big the sweet potatoes are.
5. Take the baking sheet out of the oven and let cool. Once potatoes have cooled you can easily peel off the skin and store the sweet potes in a container in the fridge to eat all week.
I like to roast 6-10 sweet potatoes at a time. If I think I roasted more sweet potatoes than I can eat, I just freeze some for the following week.
This is a great breakfast or snack if you are completing a whole 30, eating paleo-style, or just want a simple go-to healthy recipe. You can customize your sweet potato parfait to your liking with a variety of toppings and fruit. Collagen peptides are optional but I find I need a good dose of protein in the morning to stay full.
