  • 1 banana, peeled and frozen
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • honey or maple syrup (optional, for drizzling)

  2. Scoop flesh out of potato, and transfer to a small bowl.
  3. Mash with vanilla and cinnamon if using.
  4. Transfer to a freezer-safe container with a lid, and freeze sweet potato at least 2 hours or overnight.
