So how do you make this in advance? At night, boil the sweet potato, mash it and transfer it in a container with cover. In the morning, all you have to do is to add toppings that you like. Banana is always available all year round and so this is always my option. I add fresh berries when they are in season, and some nuts to give crunch. A drizzle of honey and I’m good to go and start my morning. Give it a try.

  1. Cook the Sweet Potato: Bring the water to a boil then add sweet potato. Boil for 20 – 25 minutes until soft. Prick with a fork or knife to check if done. If the knife went through the sweet potato easily, then it is good. Make sure to have really soft potato for easy mashing.
  2. Mash the Sweet Potato: Let cool until manageable to handle. Remove the skin and cut the potato into small pieces. Transfer in a bowl and mash. You can use a fork or a potato ricer. Mash the potato to your liking, smooth or with chucks. If you like it sweeter, you can add a sweetener at this stage. brown sugar, honey or maple syrup. I like mine without any sweetener.
  3. Serve: Transfer in a serving bowl and garnish with desired fruits. Serve with honey of maple syrup on the side.
