Ready for some Roasted Sweet Potato Yogurt Bowls??
I made these bowls a few weeks ago with friends after a perfect morning walk. Crisp air, leaves covering the ground, and great conversation. I haven’t lived in the Twin Cities very long, but the friends I’ve made so far are keepers. I’m so grateful for Tone It Up connecting me with all of these strong, kind women.
One of the first times I went on a run in Saint Paul, I found one of these quotes on the pavement. If you can’t read it, this one says:
“Autumn winds drag from the trees,
clog the streets in a dreary finale.
Bare branches crisscross the heavy sky.
Icy rain spatters, ink-blots the pavement.
I settle at the window, stare into thick black flannel,
search the woolly lining of the night in winter.”
The more I think about it, the more I love this quote. It really represents the transition from fall to winter. The way the sky goes from clear, bright and crisp, to foggy, cold and dark.
Wow okay so back to these yogurt bowls shall we? First I started by roasting the sweet potatoes. Sometimes I get so tired of whole roasted sweet potatoes, and slicing them like this makes them cook much more quickly too!
You can use whatever spices you’d like, but I chose nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon for these beauties. Oh and coconut oil. You can’t roast sweet potatoes in slivers like this without some kind of oil to keep them from drying out too much.
The toppings for these yogurt bowls can vary based on what you have around. We topped ours with peanut butter, grapefruit, pomegranate, bare honey and pumpkin seeds. If you haven’t tried bare honey yet, you have to! They’re a local Minnesota company and they are working to create a line of bees that can live through Minnesota winters. SO COOL ! Not to mention the honey is so so good. Thanks to the test table at Whole Foods, I tried all the flavors: lavender, chili pepper, cinnamon, and many more. Some were thick and spreadable while others were gooey and drippy just like normal honey. I am not sponsored by them or anything, I just really love their product and you all need to get your hands on some too!
