Sweet Potato Bread is the same concept as our Protein Banana Bread, using many of the same ingredients. This is yummy alternative for a holiday dessert or post workout carb choice! In the Clean Kitchen 12 Week Challenge we teach all our clients how to eat carbs that work for your body.
This is a perfect post workout meal or breakfast! You may even just need this in your life for a sweet bite. It is THAT good and decadent! You can make a big batch and keep in the fridge as part of your meal prep for up to 3 days.
Servings: 1 marvelous bowl all to yourself
Combine in a food processor:
1/2 Small sweet potato (about 1/3 cup mashed)
1/2 scoop vanilla protein (We use Quest Vanilla Milkshake)
1-2 tbs unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup cottage cheese
Dashes of cinnamon
Blend until whipped and smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
Have you been thinking about a good post workout smart carb? Well nothing is better than the sweet potato! This recipe is is so simple! It’s a chop n’ drop one pot dish. Throw a couple of eggs on the side and you’ve got an awesome post workout meal loaded with protein and smart carb starches!
How much protein should you eat? Do not worry about counting grams just yet. First you have to get in the habit of choosing protein in a correct portion size. We like to use our hand as a portion size guide. Look at your hand and thickness. Use this as your portion guide for every meal you eat!

We took the processed pasta out and packed this sweet potato lasagna with the nutrient power house, sweet potatoes! Yes, this is a higher carb recipe, but that makes for a great post workout meal. Carbs can be your friend for post workout meals! Check out “post workout” in our Categories for more ideas.
Need to make this low carb? No problem! Swap the potatoes for sliced zucchini instead!
Think sweet potato casserole with marshmallows on top. That’s the flavor of this sweet potato blondie, but with a bread pudding texture. Its is wonderful!
