Sweet Potato Beginnings

5 minutes (cooked yams needed)


We serve these for breakfast during the Maximum Weight Loss Program. The potatoes are easy to prepare ahead and refrigerate until needed to combine with the remaining ingredients.


  • 2 baked yams or sweet potatoes
  • 2 bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Peel and chop the baked yams or sweet potatoes. Combine with the bananas and apples. Mix in the cinnamon. Heat briefly in a microwave oven. Serve warm.

Hint: Yams and sweet potatoes may be used interchangeably in this (and most other) recipes. These root vegetables are sold most of the year in your markets. Sweet potatoes usually are less moist with a pale orange skin and flesh, and the root vegetables sold as yams have a reddish skin and deep orange colored flesh. These are usually very moist. This recipe may also be served cold or at room temperature.
