Equipment Required
  • Medium Pot
  • Baking Pan or Dish
  • One medium sweet potato, baked until soft (1 cup sweet potato flesh)
  • 3 medium-large carrots, trimmed and chopped (1½ cups chopped carrots)
  • 2 cups plus 1 additional cup nondairy milk (plain and unsweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1¼ teaspoons sea salt
  • ¼ – ½ teaspoon ground cayenne (½ teaspoon will make it very spicy)
  • For serving: 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Bake the sweet potato if you haven’t already done so. Remove the skin and set aside.
  • In a medium pot, place the carrots in 2 cups of the nondairy milk. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until the carrots are tender. This should take about 20 minutes.
  • Place the sweet potato in a blender along with the carrots and milk. Add the additional 1 cup of milk and all of the remaining ingredients (except the cilantro). Blend well, until very smooth. Serve immediately, topped with cilantro.
  • Great for lunch or dinner. Serves 4.
