Say hello to our Vegan Cinnamon Sweet Potato Ice Cream Pie! This delicious dish was created by the talented Pedro Pradhu, our personal chef during our Epic Awakening Retreat this past week. Our retreaters loved this dish and everyone was asking how they could make it. It was all gone before I knew it! This tasty treat is not only easy to make but you can eat this anytime of the day guilt-free.

Sweet potatoes have many benefits. They are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and phosphorus.
