Sweet Potato Boats

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

This makes a great fat-free side-dish. You can substitute chopped apples for either the raisins or the cranberries.

Sorry Mirj but I over baked the sweet potato so the boat wouldn't float - The skin just fell off the potato so I did it as a casserole and it was delicious. I will make this again and make the boat float. It will look so attractive

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake the sweet potatoes in their skins.
  2. Allow them to cool.
  3. When the potatoes are cool, slice them in half lengthwise and gently scoop out the flesh, leaving behind enough to hold the shell together.
  4. In a food processor, grind the cranberries.
  5. Then add the raisins, walnuts, honey, cinnamon and the reserved sweet potato and process until well mixed.
  6. Mound the filling back into the sweet potato shells and bake in a 350°F oven for 20 minutes.
  7. If the potatoes are large, slice each boat in half before serving.
