Purple passion cheesecake

I was contacted by Frieda’s Specialty Produce to see if I was interested in receiving their Stokes Purple Sweet Potatoes.  I am a fan of their company and love their versatile Soyrizo; paired with my love for sweet potatoes I of course accepted.

I immediately fell in love with this specialty produce!  They are non-GMO (yay), loaded with antioxidents, and not overly sweet.  If you cannot find them in your local area they’re available on Amazon!

Ingredients:

  • Sweet Potato Cheesecake:
    • 4 Cups sweet potato puree
    • 3 Cups soaked cashews
