Healthier Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potato casserole gets a healthy makeover, without losing any of the taste.

Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole

Yesterday we shared a classic sweet potato casserole recipe with you. Today, we’ve turned to our friends over at Produce for Kids for a healthier twist. It’s also quicker since they boil their sweet potatoes instead of roasting them.

Their recipe has less butter and no added sugar (except in the marshmallows, which are optional). It still tastes great though and we know you’re going to love love love this classic done healthy.
