  • 1 large purple sweet potato, peeled
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons refrigerated full-fat coconut milk (use the solid part) or coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Extra refrigerated full-fat coconut milk for coconut whipped topping (see notes)
  • Cinnamon and nutmeg, to sprinkle


  1. Boil potato until tender and easy to poke with a fork, about 20-25 minutes. Place in blender or food processor and purée.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Place in four small shot glasses or small jars. Top with coconut whipped cream and sprinkle with added cinnamon and nutmeg.


To make a very small amount of coconut whip topping, add 2-3 tablespoons chilled coconut milk fat to a bowl and whip quickly with a fork. You may add a drop or two of vanilla, if desired.
