25 Recipes for Sweet Potatoes

Do you like pumpkin?  Than, you’ll love sweet potatoes.   

Sweet potatoes are an incredible substitute for pumpkin – one I like a whole lot better. 


  • Sweet potatoes are naturally sweeter than pumpkin, meaning you can significantly reduce the sweetener in your favorite fall dish!
  • Sweet potatoes are high in fiber (3x that of pumpkin).
  • Sweet potatoes have 4x the amount of Vitamin A than pumpkins.
  • Sweet potatoes have 3x the amount of Vitamin C than pumpkins.
  • Sweet potatoes have more calcium & iron  than pumpkins.

And, sweet potatoes are easy to prepare – making puree from scratch rather than canned pumpkin.

Best part yet – you won’t even taste the difference in your cooking
