It’s that time of the year again, when fresh local berries are in full swing!

It was a slow start to the berry season this year, as it was a wet, rainy spring. About a month ago I was chatting with some berry growers at my local farmers market, and they said this will be the best strawberry season they’ve seen in years!

You can’t beat a bowl of freshly picked juicy sweet berries. I’m a berry fiend in the summer. Once I get them home and washed, usually the fruit only lasts a day or two.

It’s always easy to throw berries into some yoghurt or oatmeal in the morning, so I wanted to shake things up and make a new, healthy, and super tasty breakfast recipe for you.

Berry Delicious Stuffed Sweet Potatoes – Food is Life

What you’ll need:

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Yoghurt (your choice) I go dairy-free these days and eat coconut yoghurt, but Greek yoghurt would work great also
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Granola (I use gluten-free granola)

Optional Toppings:

  • chia seeds
  • hemp seeds
  • ground flax
  • maple syrup

Don’t be intimidated by cooking the sweet potato! It’s so easy, and they’ll be ready in no time. I don’t use my microwave often, but for this recipe, it comes in handy.

All you’ll need to do is poke the sweet potatoes a few times with a fork, and pop them in the microwave, cooking in 3-minute intervals. (I cook it on the baked potato setting). They’ll cook in about 6-8 minutes, depending on the heat of your microwave.

Carefully remove the sweet potatoes from the microwave and let them cool. Slice the sweet potato down the middle, mash the inside a little bit, and load it up with all of the other ingredients.

And that’s it! Easy peasy. A yummy breakfast that can be prepared ahead of time for those busy mornings, to enjoy with a cup of coffee.

Happy Eating!

  1. Poke the sweet potatoes with a fork, and place them in the microwave. Cook on high for two 3-minute intervals. Slide a knife through the middle to check doneness (it should go through easily).

This is a perfect breakfast for meal prep! You can make them ahead for a few days. Place the sweet potatoes in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
